My solar on my truck camper is better than what I thought. I am so happy not having to run the engine to get the power I need to keep my Engel fridge, TV, Fantastic fans, and charge things.
This is a no worry system by now. It hmjust does its job every day. I have to see how it works when I get back easy but now it thrilled.
When I designed and installed solar on my friend’s RAV4 to charge her Goal Zero, I knew from my Prius Campervan days that having to run the engine on the Prius or hang my 60 watt solar panel was a pain to do and think about.
I told her that if I learned one thing from my Prius Travels was to put solar on the roof and let it do its thing, whether driving or parked the solar is doing its thing. You don’t have to worry about driving our putting out a panel.
She is also thrilled with this decision and glad I talked her into buying the roof rack and with my design to hang the solar between the cross bars for a very stealthy look.
Back to my Prius. If I was to go back to the Prius dwelling I would get the Toyota roof rack and install a solar panel the same way I did for my friend and I wouldn’t have to run the Prius to charge my house battery, just to cook, heat, or cool.
