How To Power A Camper Van
When converting a camper for off-the-grid living, an important part of the set-up is POWER. To keep food fresh in the fridge and to charge phones and laptops, you need electricity. After spending 16 months on the road, here's a simple set-up that works for us.
4 - Solar panels
Initially we didn't have solar panels but after a year of running out of power and having to drive just to recharge the battery, we installed 200W of Flexible Solar Panels on the roof of our VW Bus (video coming soon). It's a game changer getting power just by sitting in the sun. We run the fridge all day now and can charge our laptops, camera equipment, and phones at the same time.
