Solar Powered RV EASY DIY video

Here is the video that so many people have been asking for! On this video we show you how we set up our RV with solar panels. We knew from the beginning that we wanted to boondock, meaning we wanted to be in rural areas away from the city. One of the main reasons we wanted to go RVing was to enjoy the beautiful sites all around our country. For our family, we did not want to limit our destination options to only RV parks. We want to be able to look out our windows and see nature all around us, not RVs everywhere. Our kids want to be able to step outside the RV and be able to run and explore for miles! If we had to stay at  RV parks just to plug in, it would drastically change our whole experience. We do not want to be squished in RV parks like sardines. We do not want to have to worry about who our neighbors would be or hope that the park management wouldn’t be bothered by the number of kids we had. Plus, when we boondock, we save a LOT of money!! Sure there was an initial cost to setting up our RV with solar but it will pay for itself in no time. It only made sense for our family to go this route because it has given us the freedom to truly roam and explore. Think about it, now we have 80,000 sq. mile national parks as our backyards. Yes, adding the solar panels and batteries did add weight to our RV but we are still getting decent gas mileage, even with pulling our vehicle! The little cost it may add to our monthly gas expense is not noticeable. The money we are saving each month, not having to park an RV park, is what is amazing!

My husband has such a great satisfaction knowing we do not need to plug in anywhere to receive power. Normally we try and save money and go with cheaper products if we can get away with it, but we did not do that with our solar panel system. My husband went with high end American made products because he knew this was something we were going to be doing for a long time. He wanted to know that the system he was installing would last and produce enough power for our family of 8 to live. We chose to go with Magnum Dimensions Inc.  Magnum makes superior quality products and they are an American company located in Everett, Washington. We love it when we are able to buy products made right here in America. The customer service is amazing! They are always available and always very helpful when answering our questions.

We were thankful to have a friend help us out with wiring the system together.
