RV Freedom with Solar Powered Panels

At some point soon you have got to find a spot to plug in and recharge your battery, or do you? The great thing about RVing is you’re able to ramble off the well trodden route and explore fascinating areas. That having been said, nothing is worse than being in a fantastic place but there’s no where to plug in your electrical appliances.

Technology looks to be invading virtually each part of our life for better or for worse. In the case of portable rv solar panels, it is for the better.

They are similar to the panels you see in peoples’ backyards or on their roofs. Even better, one of the weaknesses of home solar cells does not exist with an RV. Solar energy panels produce DC electricity that needs to be converted to AC for a home. Since an RV runs on DC, the difficulty is eliminated and you get more kick out of your panels. A portable solar panel system can be really powerful. Really, it can put as much power into your batteries as a gas or propane generator. Another advantage is your rv solar panels will not make the noise of a generator. On the other hand, it also does not produce energy at night, so you want to do some planning for your energy needs. Using solar energy panels for an RV is a reasonably straightforward process. You can attempt to work out your energy usage to pinpoint the correct number, but it is simpler to just ask the dealer.

Anyhow, you mount your panels on the roof. They fold down flat to the roof when you’re driving. When you park, you must park in the sun and in a direction where the panels will get the maximum exposure.

If you like to park in the shade, you can purchase a moveable system that you can position on the ground. Make sure you have a long wire in case the shade covers a large area. The power from your solar energy panels should be ready to keep your batteries charged as long as there is sun. The biggest issue you will run into is powering your air-conditioning. RV air conditioners use the power in large quantities, so use it sparingly or turn on a generator.
