The basic solar-charging system consists of roof-mounted solar panels running through a combiner box, then dropping down to the charge controller and on to the batteries. Solar is typically a supplement that works seamlessly with shorepower or generator (if so equipped).

The Roof Puzzle When deciding on how much the solar panels are going to cost for your solar system, get up on the roof. Scope out the layout, and then make cardboard cutouts the same size/shape as the solar panels you are contemplating using. Expert installers suggest leaving at least 2 inches between the panel edges and any vents, A/C units, roof edge or other obstructions. This gives space to run connecting cables and install the panel’s mounting hardware. It’s also important to leave room to walk around once the panels are in position. Once templates are set, record the number and size of cutouts to make it easy when price shopping.
