Portable solar panels

Need size recommendation to power two battery set-up. Furnace brought them down to 9.1 volts. Frig board would NOT work, yet I was able to start up the 5.5 Onan. Thank goodness. Also: would you advise a Wizard protecting device with the portable panels. A couple places to buy reliable ones would help. We most often dry camp. THX in advance. Johnny and Ruthie, CO.

any thing over 30 watts should work for you. and harbor freight sells one for like $200 it's a 45 watt system it comes with a Voltage regulator and 2 lights. we got one for a friend of mine that dry camps a lot he loves it a year latter still going. so for the money this one seems to fit the bill your looking for.

Time is life! money is just a tool. how much of your life is a tool worth?

If you're going to use the panels on other vehicles in addition to your RV, use portable system. But if you're only going to use it with the Rv, get a permanent panel mounted to the roof to save time in set up/take down, storage space, and potential accidental breakage.
