HOW I POWER MY VAN

SOLAR PANELS

I have two 100 Watt flexible solar panels mounted to my roof that powers all my electronics, cooler and full podcast setup. Renogy is my go to brand for solar because I genuinely love the brand and the people behind it. They are authentic, community focused, and the products are exceptional. 

CHARGE CONTROLLER

I have the most basic 10 A PWM charge controller and it works great for me and my setup. 

BATTERY

Lithium Iron Phosphate battery 12V 50 AH is the best. I find it to be the most light, compact, and more powerful than other batteries.   

INVERTER

I use this 1000 Watt inverter because it is the most cost efficient and gets the job done. its also quiet which is always a bonus.  

HEAD LIGHTS

I have these lights mounted to my front bumper . If you have a westy, you know that our lights are dim and how hard it is to see at night. These lights are so bright you can see small animals in the trees even at night.  You will also need to buy the wiring harness & brackets additionally to complete the setup 


THERMOELECTRIC COOLER

Most people have epic Dometic coolers but I find using my Iceless Igloo thermoelectric cooler is just fine. It runs off my solar setup and I turn it off at night to safe battery.
