This caravan came into our workshop with a semi offgrid setup. We replaced the existing setup with a new one to make it completely offgrid, with the possibility of enough solar power to power your house with!
This installation included everything from solar panels to the EGON DC hub distribution system.
First, the existing solar panels were replaced with 2 x Solaria High Voltage panels which have a combined power of 730W. Another solar input was installed on the exterior of the caravan to be able to hook up solar blankets if needed.
In the front compartment of the caravan, is where we installed a 50A Victron MPPT solar regulator for the panels and a secondary Victron 30A MPPT solar regulator for the additional blankets if they are being used.
A Victron 30A DCDC charger to use when your car is hooked up to the caravan. In parallel you can charge up to 45A from the solar panels.
Other things we installed include:
- Victron Smart Shunt
- 2 x150Ah Amptron Lithium Batteries
- 3000W Victron Multiplus Inverter with inbuilt transfer switch
- Victron BMV-712 Battery Monitor
