Travel Solar Battery ChargersAdam
Great Custom Solar Charging System For Camping
This is our camping trailer with 4 x 80w solar panels ontop and 4 x 130ah deep cycle batteries. I use a 20A regulator and a 1kw pure sine inverter. The panels generate around 20 amps in peak sun and around 120Ah per day, on average. The panels are mounted to the trailer top with stainless steel roof mounting brackets. I’ve got the angle of the panels set at around 15 degrees, but that could be a tad higher, especially in the winter with the sun being a tad lower in the sky as compared to the summer. While we’re not camping we’re still using the power from the panels. Right now the solar panels on the trailer are powering my office and the fridge/freezer in the kitchen. I wanted to build the ultimate solar panels for camping, and putting them ontop of the camping trailer seemed logical. There’s no wires to connect when you get to the camp site. All you need to do is make sure the trailer has plenty of sunlight and preferably is north facing, and you just plug the lead into the trailer power point and away you go. Very simple.
