They Built A SOLAR-Powered ALL-ELECTRIC Motorhome

This is the incredible story of how Joel and Keegan of Route Del Sol built a solar-powered all-electric motorhome in only two months. Incredible, right?

The downfall? Well, even with all of the solar panels, it’s not enough energy to keep moving every day unless you found somewhere to charge directly. Still pretty amazing, though, right?

When parked, you can expand the solar panels to get to a full charge faster.

    Are the panels AC or DC?
    You mentioned the voltage at the beginning and end of the loop. Why not series each panel if DC? AC would separate each panel? The difference between AC & DC is no voltage loss if one panel is bad? Cool idea happy travels!

    Great job!! While it might not cover all their driving miles, it’ll supply a lot of air conditioning and everything needed while parked.!!

    The RV I like is sold with flex solar panels on the roof. They are not the best solar because they cup
    and eventually hold water, so I would instead use 400-500w of regular solar panels as the better option.
    Good for them for promoting solar, it will happen on a larger scale some day.

      The advantage of flexible panels is weight. They only weigh 2kgs as compared with rigid panels at ~18kg. The cupping can be prevented especially if you adopt tracking as in the case of this installation.

    I love that you are putting a bathroom in it. IMHO it’s not a home without a bathroom

    20 solar panels. How long to charge up? How many hours for power? And does it power when moving place to place during travel?
