This rig had already been equipped with 800 Watts of solar and a 2,800 Watt inverter from a previous install. Our long-time customers/friends changed out their AGM - 8D batteries after a little over 6 years of use for some fresh 12V, 255Ah AGMs.
We installed a solar charging system and a Trik-L-Start device which charges the starter battery from the house battery.
For the ambitious do-it-yourselfers out there who are overwhelmed by doing a full solar installation, consider having AM Solar do a partial install. In this case, we’ve secured the panels and routed the solar cables. The owner intends to tackle the remainder of the project, which will include a Victron charge controller and lithium battery system. This saves the customer time and money, while giving them a head start on their solar project and control over the installation process.
