My easy 200w solar setup

Well it's officially winter it got too cold and I pulled my solar setup out of the trailer so that my battery doesn't freeze even though it was being charged every day.

This is the setup that's going to the van once the top is on..


My setup is 200 watt renogy panels that are hinged together on a 15 foot long cable so that if the trailer is parked in the shade I can still take the panels and move them and put them in the Sun. when the battery is being used with the inverter or it's been drawn down while the kids are using the lights or have the fan plugged in in the night I'll see it charging the next day in full sun anywhere from 140 to 160 Watts with them laying flat I was pretty impressed the panels were covered in snow today and still charging at the rate shown in the meter sensor.. the hundred amp hour battery has gone over 2 years without a lick of trouble I bring it in every winter this year should have brought it in about a month earlier cuz it got too cold but we're looking at negative temperatures next week I definitely wanted to get it unmounted and brought that they will also stay warm and prolong their life!!

Love my setup..maintenance free!!]
