Solar Gear

Solar Gear

A number of people have been asking me about what I have in the way of parts for the solar setup in my truck, so I figured I’d list the major components here for easy reference.  I’ve ditched the idea of building a custom solar generator in the truck for a few reasons – the main reason being, it’s a LOT easier to carry a Bluetti unit around and place it where I need to use it with no hassle.  The other reason is that I’ll be permanently mounting the solar gear in the camper, where I plan on using it the most.  I can move the ARB fridge from the truck to the camper and back as I need to, in order to keep it running – critical to being outdoors in the Texas heat – even in October and March.

If you want to learn the ins & outs of solar power, I can’t recommend Will Prowse enough.  Not only is his book an Amazon bestseller in like 12 categories and multiple countries, it has all the information you need with no fluff or BS.  Also, his YouTube channel (“DIY Solar Power with Will Prowse”) is a must for learning all this stuff.  He even has a forum if you want to ask questions.
