Some people like full-hookup campgrounds and all the amenities. We, like a lotta campers, enjoy going dry camping, or as they say boondocking, which means no hookups. The disadvantage there is sooner or later you run out of electricity. For example, if it's cool enough that you run your furnace all night, you know, your 12-volt battery power supply can be a little bit dodgy.
Fortunately, there is a simple solar solution for that. Go Power is a company that offers a number of portable solar-panel charging setups for your RV batteries. This one is 120-watt kit. They have kits all the way up to 200 watts, and they also offer permanent setups for the top of the vehicle.
The Go Power! panels and connecting cables come in a sturdy carrying case for safe and convenient storage in your RV. You unfold the panels, and you find all the hookup hardware on the inside. Each side of the panel has these kinda leg kits that can stick out here, so we'll set these up. We'll haul the whole rig over to the side of the trailer and figure out how we're gonna hook these to the batteries.
Some trailer was equipped with the solar charge port and one of the adapters in the kit just happens to fit, so we plug it in and that's set. And the nice thing is, because this is portable, you put it in the sun wherever you happen to need it. Be sure to watch this segment which has a lot more detail about setting up the GoPower Solar Panels!
