I have a 2005 Newmar Dutchstar motorhome in need of some electrical upgrades. Iíve been collecting the various parts this past year.
My goal is to get a few solar panels on the roof so when my RV is in storage at the least theyíll keep my batteries charged. Thereís a possibility of maybe doing a bit of boondocking in the future.
The parts I have on hand are as follows:
Magna Sine Pure Sine Wave Inverter/Charger (2000watts)
Trimetric TM-2030 battery monitor
MorningStar MPPT solar controller 45amp
Magnum Energy Automatic Generator Start
My near term future purchases are:
Three 160 watt Solar panels.
Four Lifeline GPL-4CT Deep Cycle Marine Battery (6V)
Iíve been wanting to try the install myself by following how others have done on their rigs. The undisputed master is a guy called HandyBob his website has been the source of my purchases. HandyBob's Blog ¬ę Making off grid RV electrical systems work
. However, time is never on my side and the storage facility forbids such work on site.
Does anyone know of a reputable solar installer who is within a reasonable distance of Virginia Beach.
Thanks so much.
