Caravan & Motorhome Solar Systems

A caravan or motorhome solar system can provide you with added freedoms on your next adventure. Make sure you get the right system for your needs to ensure that you have enough power to run all of your appliances.

Our expert team can provide advice on different systems, as well as the installation of a high-quality solar system and how best to monitor and maintain your solar system to ensure you get the best performance.

Caravan With Solar System

There are four main aspects to a Caravan Battery and Solar System Setup;

The solar panels, regulator, battery and inverter.

  • Solar panels collect Direct Current energy to charge the battery
  • The regulator ensures the battery is charged correctly
  • The battery supplies power directly to your Direct Current 12v appliances
  • Inverters are then used to power the Alternating Current 240v appliances.

There are two main types of Caravan Solar Panels:

Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline. The main difference between the two is the type of silicone solar cell they use.

Monocrystalline solar panels have solar cells made from a single cell of silicon and are more efficient, and more expensive.

Polycrystalline solar panels have solar cells made from multiple silicone fragments melted together. The electrons have less room to move, and the power generated from these panels is less efficient. However, they are still a good option for a caravan solar system, and they are more affordable.

If you are interested in installing solar panels onto your vehicle, contact the team at Caravan Repair Centre. They can advise you on what panels will best suit your needs, and help get you ready for your next sun powered adventure.
