This client had us add onto an existing setup consisting of a 2512iXL charge controller core and a set of AGMS.  He now has a much more powerful solar charger and a 3000VA inverter capable of running a wide range of loads including a microwave and a coffee maker.  The Bluetooth smart dongle allows monitoring of the system to take place wirelessly, with a smart phone.

This customer came to us with a price ceiling and asked that we give them the most power possible for their budget goal.  Upon inspecting the trailer, we found that their batteries were completely dead.  We replaced them with a pair of low cost Interstate Flooded batteries and added two 100W panels to the roof with a 25A SunRunner Signature MPPT core.  The system can easily be expanded with the addition of two more 100W panels when the customer is ready.

Sometimes with Airstreams, when solar panels are installed near the front of the rig, we double up the "L" feet on the leading edge of the panels to make more tape gripping surface area and reinforce the mounts.
