We still love our compressor refrigerator, but you can’t rely solely on solar to keep your batteries charged. You’ll need a quality backup like a genny or a dedicated alternator charging circuit during periods when the skies are overcast.
Thanks Mike! I have a Honda 2000 and a solenoid that puts the chassis battery and the house batteries in parallel when the engine is running. I have a Bosh 150 amp alternator that, from what various folks with these sprinter based motorhomes are telling me, outputs about 20-25 amps to the house batteries while driving. I have 580 watts of solar, but it will come down to dodging the grey skies, as you say. Thanks
