WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Several Renogy 100 watt monocrystalline rigid panels and the ViewStar 3oamp PWM charge controller are the backbone of our system. We especially love the customizability of the ViewStar charge controller. And to store all that energy we rake in from the sun, we use two VMAX 6v 225ah batteries connected in series to give us a robust 12v system.
HOW HAS YOUR SYSTEM POWERED YOU?
We live on the road full-time in our Airstream, but we don't camp in established campsites with hookups. To camp by the boulders we climb every day, we have to do what's called boondocking, which means we're on our own when it comes to power. At the same time, we need power every day to keep up with our photo and video work, charge camera batteries, and of course, watch our tv shows. Our Renogy Solar setup is easily our most valued feature of our Airstream, and we wouldn't be able to do what we do without it!
