solar panels on RV

A Short guide!

Determine your power needs


Figure out how much power you need for your RV by considering your appliances, electronics, and number of people using them.

Choose your solar panels


Select the type of solar panels that best fit your needs and budget, such as monocrystalline, polycrystalline, or thin-film panels.

Mount your panels on your RV's roof


Use brackets or adhesive tape to mount your solar panels onto your RV's roof. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and consider the weight of the panels.

Install a charge controller


A charge controller helps regulate the flow of electricity from the solar panels to your RV's batteries, preventing overcharging and prolonging battery life.

Connect wiring from panels to charge controller and batteries


Connect the wiring from your solar panels to the charge controller and then to your RV's batteries. This requires some electrical know-how, so consider hiring a professional if you're not comfortable doing it yourself.

Test your system


Once your solar panels are installed and connected, test your system to ensure everything is working correctly. Monitor your batteries to ensure they're charging and discharging properly.
