Questions about how to properly size my RV solar system
Hello. I am new to this forum and am looking to all of yours expertise to help me properly and correctly size my proposed solar system for my new RV. I was told that the participants of this website can provide a wealth of guidance and information as to how to properly size my system.
Where can I go or who can I call to find out what my solar system should be (i.e., battery size, inverter size, etc.) based on my project demand? My RV is a 170" Sprinter van that I will NOT be living in but will be camping and traveling in. Worst case scenario is that I would be in it for 5 days in a row at best. Typically it will be 3 to 4 days on the road and then time to hit the nearest hotel.
I have a list of the electrical equipment that will be in the van (which isn't much). It is my understanding that first I need to determine the total daily wattage of use to enable me to determine the size of my panel array, the charge controller, the inverter, the battery bank and wire sizings. Is this correct?
So what is my next step and where do I go?
Any guidance and assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
