This client was already familiar with BlueSky solar products, so he chose to go with a BlueSky 3024iL charge controller.  Along with the BlueSky charge controller we installed a 2000VA Victron Inverter kit, and a 300Ah AGM battery bank to complete the system.  The mid-sized solar power kits provide enough power to keep his batteries healthy, and run some electronic devices when disconnected from shore power.

A powerful 960W solar charging system with an 800Ah AGM battery bank and battery monitor give this motorhome energy independence.  When parked for long periods, three of the 160W solar panels can be tilted toward the south to maximize solar production.  The Magnum BMK (Battery Monitor Kit) uses a shunt to measure current and communicates battery status to the existing ME-RC50 inverter/charger monitor.  The Victron charge controller in the system core conveys solar charging status to a smart phone.  Unless these clients need to run their air conditioner for several hours, they won’t have to worry about plugging into shore power.

This client got a 640W Solar charging system with a 2000W inverter/charger.  A system like this is capable of running a residential refrigerator, microwave and blender.  Because a 70A charge controller was used, this system can be expanded in the future with the addition of two more 160W solar panels.
