Hi guys, I’m looking for some advice on sizing my solar setup for my van. Im planning on having a total of 365 watts of rigid solar panels on the roof of my van with a MPPT charge controller, and 3 x 140amp hour AGM batteries. I will also be charging the batteries from the alternator of the van when it’s running. I’m hoping that this is enough to run all of my electronics, and ideally not have to plug in or run a generator at all. I’m trying to keep everything 12v to maximize power. I will be running a 12v cooler style fridge/freezer (door on the top), 2 x 12v maxxair roof vents, 12v LED puck lights, 12v shurflo water pump, and also charging a laptop, camera batteries, and cell phone. I will also have a 2000 watt inverter/charger but to be honest I doubt I’ll be using the inverter much, if at all.
Im basically maxed out for room on the roof and this was the best option I could come up with to fit my van.
I really appreciate any input on if this system will work for me, and if not any suggestions on how to change it to make it work for my daily power needs.
Thanks so much!!!
