RV Solar Connections FAQ

Your perfect solar-set up will depend on a few factors. Things like how much energy you use, how much sun you’ll get, your budget, and your vehicle or rig all matter.

To answer this, you’ll first need to calculate your overall estimated energy usage. Check out our RV Solar Energy Audit Calculator to do so, and contact us to talk about your results with an expert.

Everyone’s specific energy needs differ. The best way to figure this out is by assessing which appliances you want to use off-grid, their wattage, and how much you’ll use them. Check out our RV Solar Energy Audit Calculator for an easy way to pull this together.

Your solar set-up is based on your specific energy needs, but there are a few core components of every system. For example, everyone needs solar panels, batteries, an inverter or inverter/charger, a battery monitor and management system, cabling and wiring, fuses, etc.
