    I am in the beginning learning phase of installing solar on my 5th wheel. I have been looking at different systems, and I have been considering the Renogy 800 watt 12 volt Solar Premium Kit. It is the Eclipse kit, with 8 slightly smaller panels, which I have determined that they will fit on my roof, but may be a little tight for walking up there. (32 ‘ ) Then, I am looking at different higher watt solar panels, like roughly 300 watts, so I only need 3, or maybe 4. They are bigger but will still fit. With those, I would have to piece everything together such as my charge controller, wire and so on. What is the best option? Does Renogy make good equipment? Would a different charge controller for a slightly bigger system be a better trade off? Is a kit from Renogy a good choice? When you go about building a system, were do you get your equipment, or is it all just a matter of price and availability? Thank you.   Doug.

    Hi Doug,  Your at the right place, Ray haves a lot of knowledge .   This is what we put on our class C last spring .   We are not full timers yet , but we are boondockers here in the north east and this keep’s our battery at full charge  .   This year we are up grading the battery bank to add more storage.  We are very happy with it.
