View Full Version : Solar panel for camper

03-27-2007, 11:45 AM
Any of you sparkies out there know anything about solar panels for charging 12v batteries? I have a camper I keep at the lake for the season and I want to put a panel out to keep my batteries charged and also run the controller on my propane fridge (which draws very little current) during the week (between weekends). Has anyone tried this set up and what type of solar charger do you have? I saw a 5W for sale for about $60.00, and a 11W for about $100.00.

Thanks for any advice.

We have used one for a utility trailer that dumps. Used only a few times a season. It does pretty well. Got it from Northern Tool.

We have one on our camper and it has saved us a few times. Great item to have.
