My major project is a 200 watt solar installation on the RV. I purchased a kit from A and M Solar that is well designed, complete and robust. The hardest part of the job is to decide where to locate the solar panels on the roof, how to route the cables from the roof into the RV and to the batteries and where to locate the charge controller.
The layout of the class C; the lack of a basement area and a roomy battery compartment make this a much more challenging installation. Hopefully this will eliminate having to run the built in Onan generator 90% of the time. When camping in a remote, beautiful, serene area the last thing I want to do is run that noisy, smelly, obnoxious generator. This solar installation will never recoup it’s cost, really don’t care, but it will add to the pleasure of my camping experience.
