Many RV owners believe their only option for generating power while camping is with a generator. However, 101 RV Rentals is here to offer a quiet, eco-friendly alternative: solar panels! Our panels create an efficient, affordable way to power your RV. Read on to learn if solar panels are right for you.
Solar Panel Benefits
RV solar panels systems offer a variety of benefits to both RV owners and the environment.
- Eco-Friendly – Solar panels produce 100% clean energy! They rely solely on the power of the sun to charge your RV’s batteries.
- Low Maintenance – RV solar panels require very little maintenance. In fact, you really only need to clean the panels in order for them to operate optimally. When you clean your RV after a trip, simply wipe the glass clean, and you are good to go!
- Extended Battery Life – Typical RV batteries last two to three years under normal conditions. Most RV owners recharge their batteries with a generator, which, over time, reduces the voltage of the battery. By switching to solar power, you will easily double the life of your battery and enjoy optimal battery levels during daylight hours.
- Peace and Quiet – AC generators are noisy and emit fumes. RV solar panels, on the other hand, are silent and completely green, allowing you to enjoy the peaceful sounds and smells of nature!
Our RV Solar Solutions
Whether you are investing in solar panels for the first time or need to replace an outdated system, we have a solution that fits your needs and budget. We currently offer two different solar panel systems:
- Solar Panel System #1 – This system maintains the batteries and is powered with a battery charge controller. Your batteries will always be at 100% during sunlight hours.
- Solar Panel System #2 – This option will maintain your batteries and make all outlets live without the use of a generator. The system includes a charge controller, solar panel, and an inverter which converts DC 12-volt to AC 110-volt power. You will be able to watch TV, charge electronics, and run the microwave all from solar energy.
