Pleasure Way

9/15/17 – 2008 Pleasure-Way, 21’

This client wanted to be able to run his microwave, and he wanted all of his AC outlets to be functional when dry camping.  The existing battery bank was not large enough to power the loads he was planning on running.  It’s recommended that when running a heavy AC load (like a microwave) you want to have at least a 300Ah to 400Ah battery bank.  We doubled the size of his battery bank (from 220Ah to 440Ah), installed a solar charging system and an inverter, which should give him the power he needs to be comfortable while dry camping.

We installed a 220Ah AGM battery bank and a 300W solar charging system on this client’s van.  In typical weather conditions, the solar panels will replenish about 75Ah per day (70% of the battery bank’s usable capacity).  Solar, combined with alternator charging will keep these batteries topped off.
