My sister and her family are heading out this month on a cross-country RV trip. The rig is loaded with games and movies for the kids, cameras, computers, cell phones and all the necessities of 21st century life.
But how will they keep everything running if they cannot find an RV lot each night at which to recharge the batteries? With solar panels for RVs, re-charging can be done on the road and/or at any place they choose to park overnight… plug or no plug!
Cleaner and more quiet than a fuel-powered generator, portable solar panels easily power your batteries directly, or can be used to provide energy for a solar generator. Many of the RV solar panels on the market are foldable and/or light. Depending on your electrical requirements, you can fully power your parked RV on 100-400 watts. That will generally require 2-6 solar panels, sized 4′ x 2′ (typically generating 75 to 100 watts). Or you could purchase an all-in-one solar panel kit for $200 or less.
Here are some PV panel kits to consider for your RV – to either fully power your needs, or to provide back-up battery recharging:
Before your next RV trip, consider solar panels for your back-up energy needs!
