Solar Panels for full-time living?
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:55:09 AM »

Just bought a Forest River Wildwood 27REI for full-time living on my parent's land while I finish college. I want to try and make it as much off the grid as possible. What would be the best solar panel system for it? It is the same as this one:


Thank you!

I know you believe you understand what you think I said,
But I am not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant

It depends a lot on how much you use and how far north you live.  I have 540 watts, but sunset is 5pm where I am living in a van.  I need to stay electrically frugal.
