Compatible 190 Watt Solar Panel for RV

Compatible 190 Watt Solar Panel for RV

What kind of 190 can I use to be compatible with other major brands

A lot of customer look for panels that may be compatible with some of the major RV solar brand panels. This can be for a lot of reasons like:

  • Out of stock
  • Discontinued
  • Pricing
  • Shipping speed

I had a customer looking to build an expansion kit without using the main brands panel.

They were trying to match a panel with the following specs:

  • Output power 190 Watts
  • Rated current 9.3 Amps

At the time of publishing, the two panels had similar voltages and amperages.

The cart below has the panel, mc4 branch connectors and the mounting brackets from a similar panel.

This is the panel only

190 Watt panels are a great RV size and foot print

For years we sold the Go power 190 high quality solar panels. This robust size was powerful yet had a great form factor.

With Go Power panels you know you will get what you pay for. They are a little more exspensive and the quality is there to support the price.

Maybe save a few dollars with another RV solar panel brand.

There are always different panels that you can choose to build your solar array from. Always consider price versus quality. Solar panels are things you really don't want to have to replace. It is a pain, so choose what works for your RV or off-grid array.

Need to add batteries to your RV solar setup as well? New lithiums can make your system more robust and capable.

Lithium batteries have come down a lot in price over the last 10 years. When we first started selling these batteries, they were hard to come by and a 100 Ah battery would cost over $5000. Today they are much lower cost and the power denisty is getting greater.

Which do I have, MC3 or MC4 Solar Expansion Panel? Do I have the MC3 or MC4 connectors on my existing RV Solar kit? A lot of times it is really easy to determine, you just need to have access to the connectors on the existing system. Once you have the connectors visible, you should be able to see the side of the connector for the MC3 or MC4. An MC4 connector on the end of the solar power cable has locking tabs on the side.
