Hi.... Solar?
#1
Can anyone direct me to a place I can learn how it works, how much a van needs, watts??? Hhhmmmm..... Good solar sites? Specifically..... In the pic....

That won't run a van with all the frills, so to speak, will it?[Image: 9ac7ef0c9f2546f20c0db6504f4552fd.jpg]

Ask here in the solar thread and you will get the people that left the other place because of dangerous information

Or this can be YOUR solar thread. There is nothing better than getting the answers as they relate to your needs and situation.

First off it isn't what a van needs, it is what you need. What do you want to be able to do in that van? What do you want to run? When?

As for your question. A 130 watt panel is not going to do a whole heck of a lot.

I need to have enough power to run an air conditioner in the desert.... Sounds like the solar currently on the van won't be enough.... ?????

If you really want to run an Air Conditioner off solar....
Jim is the only person I've ever seen that did it.
You might need a bit more panel,,,,,,
