  1. RV solar! We finally installed solar panels on our toy hauler. Full time RV living is so much easier with solar. It's definitely not cheap but is a great investment, especially if you love boondocking.If you have been watching the channel for a while you know that we had a solar system installed on our last rig (Keystone Cougar). We swapped rigs over the summer and acquired a toy hauler with a built-in Cummins Onan 5500 generator. This has made it possible for us to boondock without solar and save up money for our full solar install. In the video we talk about lithium vs lead acid batteries, where we went to get the panels installed, and show you all the basics of our system. Hope you enjoy and please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!

  3. Could anyone tell me what type of portable solar panel you recommend for a 26 ft class A RV? I need something portable that would run my air conditioner if needed. Thanks so much! Maggie
  4. Looking for a rig I can boondock in full time while working online. Prefer 36' if possible. Ideally has solar panels and batteries already, but I can add them. Want high quality older rig, like Country Coach, 1999-2001 vintage. Can you help? E-mail me at frandeco@hotmail.com.
  5. This is one of those questions where I already know what's best but just looking for feedback. The Solar Panels I have can be raised up and tilted so I get a more direct look at the sun versus them remaining flat on my RV roof, and as would be expected subject to the suns location in the sky and time of year etc., its possible to increase charge by proper lifting/tilting. Okay next spring I'm adding another panel or two and due to my roof and mounting arrangement, hardware etc., it would take a lot more work and configuring to have the new panels be adjustable in the same geometry and angle as the existing. I know it would be best if all four were similar so my QUESTION IS: If say two are lifted at an angle for more sun exposure while the new one(s) remain flat on the roof and all (3 or 4) will be wired in series, what bad effects might I expect OTHER THEN I wont get as much charge as if all were producing more equal????????????? My best guess is sure more panels will still give me more charge then I currently have and the flat panels might not (depends on sun angle) produce what the tilted will, but still my series sum will add up to more charge then with only the two original panels even if not the ideal situation. The room I have and the hardware and mounting methods just makes it so much easier to mount my new panel(s) flat and be done with it. Actually based on my loads and useage what I have fulfills my needs (pretty much so even if they remain flat and aren't ever tilted) but I just want to add a bit more capacity and am willing to settle for less then maximum. I have about talked myself into mounting the new ones flat, wire in series, and not worry and just take what I can get lol YES My Charge Controller can handle the voltage and current I will end up with, that's not any problem. Thanks gang John T Long retired EE and I was more into AC power distribution then electronics grrrrrrrrrrrrr
