Ready to make an off-grid array for your RV?
Self reliance is a great feeling. Knowing that your RV can handle multiple days off-grid is a one way to get out there and enjoy nature.
A big part of this off-grid setup is a desire for efficency and an ability to produce the amount of power required for daily operation.
This can be done with the following main choices for your RV:
- Solar panel array
- Wind Generator
The RV Solar kits are just made of solar panels, hardware, charge controller, batteries and wiring. When the sun is out, the panels will take the light from the sun and use it to charge your batteries.
Never before has there been such a large selection of the kits on the market.
Growing demand for the following off-grid items has caused the solar arrays to grow in wattage:
- Residential Refridgerators
- Residential Washing Machines
- Larger computer remote work setups
- Increase RV size
The kit you look for should match your RV size and type:
- Class A
- Class B
- Class C
- Fifth Wheel
- Travel Trailer
- Truck Camper
- Popup Campers
Each of these types has a certain amount of power needed and roof space available to install.
