Fifth Wheels, Travel Trailers & Truck Campers

California RV Specialists has developed three solar-powered systems examples that are a good fit for most customers looking to go off-grid with a 50A fifth wheel and travel trailer. These packages are customizable to fit your specific needs, or we’ll work with you to create a completely custom system.

All systems provide plenty of energy to run normal 12V DC electronics suck as (lights, vent fans, USB outlets, etc.) and small 120V AC electronics (phones, laptops, TVs, etc.) for a very long time, as well as moderate use of larger appliances (air conditioners, microwaves, hair dryers, etc.). The larger your system’s battery bank, the more power you’ll have to use. The more solar you have, the faster you can recharge your battery bank.

SoftStart is designed for single-phase motors, and works seamlessly with a generator, inverter, battery or solar power. If you want to run your air conditioning off of solar via your inverter, you will need an SoftStart in order to lessen the initial energy draw of the A/C. Without one, you will likely damage your inverter over time.
