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).
Motorhome Solar Primer - Blue Sky Charge
Battery Health Lead-acid batteries need to be regularly brought up to a full charge to maximize longevity. To do that, RV solar experts recommend the solar-panel output to battery Ah ratio stay between .5:1 to 2:1. That’s the equivalent of a 100-watt to 400-watt solar charging array feeding into a 240 Ah battery bank, for example. Charging efficiency increases with the bigger solar array.
