    I installed this kit in my motor home to eliminate having to run the generator or plug in to shore power every couple of days. I would recommend adding an inline fuse and a cutoff switch if you purchase this kit. Everything included from Renogy was packaged securely and all components seem to work as expected. This was my first solar install and I had no background in this technology so I watched a few YouTube videos to get an idea of how others were doing their installs. Overall I am very happy with this product.

    This is a complete package. About everything you need is included. I did add a disconnect switch between the panels and charge controller just to make it easier when you have to disconnect the battery.I made a small solar generator for when the grid power goes out. This worked well for my purposes.

    Installed this system on my Toy Hauler RV. It is keeping the two batteries charged very nicely. We can watch a movie at night, and the batteries are fully charged by the next evening. I suspect we could watch a couple of movies, but I haven’t done this yet. We use LED light bulbs throughout the RV to reduce consumption. I wish more people would go solar and use their generators less. Solar won’t power the microwave or air conditioner, but it powers everything else.Some people complain about the controller, but I think it does fine. The complaint is that it doesn’t have a meter to show voltage or current. In my opinion, you only want this in the beginning to see how efficient your system is. The controller has LEDs that show when it is charging and when it is in maintenance charge mode (batteries full). I have an inexpensive volt meter that plugs into the 12 volt outlet. Good enough for me.Do not buy the huge fuse holder and 100A fuses that appear as “Items other people bought with this.” The correct fuses are 15A and 30A, and you can use standard automotive fuse holders. There is an inexpensive meter that appears when you purchase this, and I recommend that you fully read the instructions and develop a plan before buying it. This meter can only tell you what is happening at the point of installation. For example, some people install this between the panels and the controller (shows panel output), between the controller and the batteries (shows controller output), or between the batteries and the load (shows what the appliances are actually using from the battery). In my opinion, the last application is the only one I care about on an ongoing basis, and the installation for this application is independent of the solar install.Also, take the time to look up the recommended roof attachment procedures for your type of roof. I have an EPM roof, so I looked at the manufacturer videos for attaching a fan to an EPM roof and used those as a guide. I was surprised to learn that butyl tape is the first line of defense and the self-leveling caulk was the second line of defense. If the roof leaks, dry rot will likely follow, and that can be expensive at best or ruin the RV.Some people commented that the connectors are difficult to separate, but there is an inexpensive tool you can buy at checkout to make this easy.The instructions say to hook up the solar panels last or cover them so they don’t produce a charge until after they are connected to the controller. I cut cardboard covers from the shipping box and taped them to the panels. This allowed me to lay out everything before the final attachment.

    I’ve been using these Renogy 100 watt solar panels now for about two years and I have to say that so far they have worked flawlessly! I have 200 watts of panels mounted to the roof of our house and wired to a 180 amp/hour interstate battery bank for when we have power outages. They are connected to a 800 watt inverter which is hard wired to 4 outlets, 1 each in a different room of the house, and whenever our power goes out we just simply flip the circuit breaker on and plug in. No noise and inexpensive. This has been such a good backup power supply and works every time! So what all do we power with this system? We usually run a 60″ flat screen, wireless router, lights in each room if needed, and a fan if it’s hot. If needed we could power our refrigerator and freezer, but our power outages or usually less than 24 hours.

    I fixed up the two panels so I could use them as a briefcase. I first checked the panels out and matched them to the specs sheet and they performed as advertised. The instructions from Renogy were right on and I proceeded as instructed. They were sent to me by #AdventureUninterupted and arrived in two days through Amazon Prime. I made my setup using a piano hinge to join the panels and then 50 amp plugs so I would be able to hook up the battery before the Controller to the panels remembering that you must cover the panels so they produce no voltage thus no amperage potential. I did this with a cargo blanket that I’ve modified to cover and carry the panels, controller and wiring harness.

    I installed this on my trailer. I liked the fact that the charge controller could have handled up to four panels. The 200w setup is adequate for my needs. I added a second deep discharge battery to the trailer to contain the charge. I also added a sine wave inverter to operate the 110v appliances in the trailer, direct connected to the battery.After installing the panels on the roof, I don’t plug the trailer in anymore to charge it. The entire system is capable of running a few light appliances like TVs, power drills, etc. It cannot run the air conditioner, microwave, or other high power appliance. I have not experienced running out of power at night, but then I haven’t really tried to stress it. One time when the power was out in the house, I used the system to run a light and a drill. Nice to have a backup power source.Installation was easy, although I didn’t use the provided tiedown fasteners. I actually liked the tiedown fasteners described in the manual, which are rubber expanding bolts that hold the mounts secure from the back side. However, that was not what came with the panels. I found that the roof was actually something like 3/8 plywood decking, and used wood screws and proper roof sealant throughout.One hint I would give is to NOT try out the snap in power connectors before you are ready. They are unbelievably difficult to get apart again.I don’t know why everyone is so down on the controller. It works fine, and gives good status indications. Apparently the “ultimate” charge controller is supposed to be a Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controller. But according to what I have read, this means it optimizes charging my knowing where the sun is at maximum, by remembering the peak power generation time of the panel. This would have no use in any case for a trailer, because that is going to change when you move the trailer.

    Great quality and really cranks out the energy. I’m definitely happy I went with the MPPT controller instead of a PWM. I so wish I sprung for the 40A instead of the 20A. The 20A can only take 2 100W panels on a 12V system which is all I thought I needed but it would be nice to have some ability to upgrade without buying a whole new controller.All materials seem to be very high quality. Installation instructions are thorough and easy to understand.I sent a question to their customer service department and received a prompt response.The only thing that wasn’t totally clear to me and nearly caused a pretty serious problem is that the MC4 connectors are a little counter-intuitive in terms of their gender identity. The one referred to as female actually goes into the one referred to as male. So pay close attention to which is labeled positive vs negative (and thankfully they are labeled) and don’t assume male = part sticking out.

    This is a great product, I installed it on my boat that is anchored off shore, connected to 4 marine batteries, I connected a 3000 watt inverter right to my shore power plug and now everything works on my boat, including my refrigerator, hot water and all my ac plugs. I was disappointed that the kit doesn’t come with the needed Y adapter that connects the second panel. I had to order that after the fact, but it’s only $10 and came quick. I noticed there is a 200 watt kit that comes with it on Amazon. But I give it 5 stars because it enables me to live off the grid, I will be adding more panels just ensure my system is at optimum levels especially in the winter.

    Installed this 200w kit on my 2005 Sierra sport rv. I went with the fridge vent wiring method by taking off vent cover, clipping a hole in the screen and feeding it down. This kit was easy to install with basic tools. Don’t forget to seal roof when you screen panels in. Add fuses or breakers on the positive of both the battery side and solar. I paired this with a 750 watt inverter to run a few basic items in my rv. Will do great charging power wheels. Electronics etc. And hey…less generator usage!!

  10. N. Allen

    With this kit it was extremely easy for me to construct a portable power station utilizing a garden trailer, a couple of marine batteries and an inverter. For regular daily use, the inverter powers a 120v fence charger that packs a much bigger punch than most solar fence chargers and if the need arises for me to have power elsewhere on my little farm, the trailer is small and light enough to push up a 20 degree hill by hand but also hooks up very easily to a riding mower..
