We installed a Blue Sky system for this client several years ago, and they recently came back to have a new solar power system installed in their new coach. Their primary need for a solar power system is to offset the energy used by their residential refrigerator. We installed 680W of solar power on their roof, about three-fourths of which will go towards powering their refrigerator. In ideal conditions (lots of sun) the excess solar power can be used to charge their batteries faster. Sometimes conditions are less than ideal though (not enough sun), which is why no one complains about having too much solar power.
We installed a powerful 960W Solar charging system, a 300Ah AGM Battery bank and a 3000W inverter on this class A motorhome. Fortunately Victron inverters can be installed in a variety of orientations. This one is upside down.
These customers came to us looking for a solar charging system and battery monitor that would be compatible with a future lithium upgrade. We got them 1280W of 160W panels going through a Victron 100A charge controller and a BMV-702 battery monitor with Victron Color Control GX display.
We installed a 320Ah Signature Lithium Battery System in this coach, along with a 960W solar charger and a 2000VA inverter. This customer won’t have to worry about plugging into shore power or starting up a generator when they want to run a microwave or a blender.
