Camp anywhere – with Solar Powered Caravans or Motor Homes
Most modern caravans or motor homes have a 12 volt or 24 volt battery system ex factory. These systems are charged by the vehicle’s alternator while the engine is running and often incorporate a 230 volt battery charger to maintain the battery when connected to the electricity grid.
However, in a remote location (like most National Parks) 230V is rarely available. Without an alternative power supply, running a generator or the engine is the only way to re-charge the batteries which of course spoils the desired benefit of camping remotely.
Solar panels are an excellent way to keep your batteries charged while enjoying the serenity. Solar modules are quiet, don’t smell, last for 20 years or more, require hardly any maintenance and – these days – are very affordable.
We sell both 12 volt and 24 volt (nominal) solar panels to match the RV’s battery voltage. The panels come in various shapes and sizes to suit most vehicles/installation areas.
