Solar Panel Layout Guide For RVs

Getting started on the process of RV solar requires knowing what assets you have to work with. One of the biggest assets an RV owner has is free uninterrupted roof space. Learn how to maximize open spaces and fit your solar panels into the open areas you have to work with. The more solar you can add will mean the more DC electrical power you can produce. This is why it is important to put on your thinking cap ahead of time and create an RV solar panel layout.

The items are just the main ones that can and will break apart your RV roof into smaller less usable spaces for solar panels:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Vents
  • Fans
  • Drain & Plumbing Vent Pipes
  • Skylights
  • TV Antennas
  • Exhaust Fans
  • Satellite Antenna
  • Roof Racks
  • AM/FM Radio Antennas
  • Port Holes

Panel layout requirements may cause the need for more cabling

Keep in mind that some RVs will have obstructions that require panels to be placed some distance apart. It may require you to order additional MC4 extension cables to make the necessary connections.
