HI! Help me please!
I am looking for advice on adding solar to my existing system. I currently have 2 100 amp hour deep cycle batteries that charge off of my vehicle with a battery isolator. These batteries were in the bus when I bought it (it was partially converted) and I was told they were sufficient to run the:
- d2 espar heater
- reverse camera
-and water pump.
I have since put in a Dometic Coolmatic CR-1065U/F 2.3 CU. FT. 12/24 Volt DC & 110/220 Volt AC Built-in Refrigerator and I would like to add solar to ensure that my batteries are charged enough all the time to run this fridge. I also have a 100 watt inverter for charging my laptop and phone but and thinking of getting a large one.
So what size solar panels do I need? Charge controller? is it better to get a kit or just add on to my set up? Is it easier to instal panels or glue flexible sheets to the roof?
I am feeling a little overwhelmed in a sea of information and any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you in advance!!!
