Good Old RVs sent out a general email requesting blogs and posts about adding/installing solar energy to your RV.
I have no experience but I want to know too. I found the following video on YouTube and it's fairly straight-forwards. You can fill in the blanks with other, similar links (from Google).
I would like to be included in any further discussions on this topic.
Howdy All, We are new to the site, She is new to RV's but not campin, He is not new to either.
He has been wanting to put solar on our motorhome for years and has finally found some panels that he likes. Our question to the group is, What do you all think of the Flex Solar Power Mat system? We have a 1984 Allegro 31' Class A. A 6.5 kw Onan Generator and 2 6v golfcart batteries for coach power. Lookin forward to all replies.
Thanks in advance
i new to solar also always used GEN, but plain to go solar this time. just got NEW 1985 SILVER EAGEL CLASS A MOTOR HOME. never had a motor home before always had 5th wheels and pull behind. so ever think is new to me. she was very dirty but in great shape, restoreing all the inside wood work right now, but i do what to go off grid and solor with her. not sure how many amps i need she is 27 ft long.just stating to resurch solar now so i know what i need when i ready.
If you do a search Alternative Energy or 12 volt power chart, you should pull up all sorts of info, including charts that show what you can run off of 12 volt systems. They will let you see how little that you can run lol, but really they show what all you need to get started.
Above all else, heed the warnings from the other posters, Safety First, because those 12 v systems will short out if not installed just right and could burn the Coach down. All to Best to You!!
