Re: Newbie looking to set up RV solar system with ability to connect to grid
Welcome to the forum.
That sentence right there is what stops everything else. If you don't know how much power you need/want to supply with the solar it becomes a guessing game that has only a 1/3 chance of coming out right.

Usually people put solar on their RV's so they can have "quiet power" when away from utility hook-up. Do they charge you enormous amounts (like over $1 per kW hour) for it?
These are the questions you need to answer before you proceed, otherwise you'll be throwing money away.
