Just got back from our virgin break in run. let me just say as my first Jayco Im nothing but impressed, everything worked as advertised and we went out for a short weekend 3 days 2 nights. Turns out the only site left in town for the last minute planners was dry camping...but I was prepared.
The Renogy solar suitcase saved the day, this thing is amazing. I want to thank the previous poster here in this forum THANK YOU ALL FOR POSTING this forum made my decision.
I didn't want to retrofit, and fabricate my entire roof with solar, as a former fabricator I have the technology. Sometimes in my primary industry Ive seen the advantages of "stand alone systems" (non integrated) so much easier to service when something goes wrong, and eventually something always goes wrong.
I opted for the 100W suitcase model by Renology after studying up here on the forum. Perfect choice for me, I had it hooked up in less than 5 minutes with no previous solar experience. It took my giant oversized deep cycle marine battery from 50% to 100% in full sun in 30 minutes flat, I was amazed, pleased and practically jumping for joy, my family got sick of my exhuberance but they don't really understand how extremely cool this is
Im a backcountry preferred camper, I like isolation and Im so excited because now I can everything essential to life off one panel, I ll have hot water, showers, radio, HEAT etc. I don't have to come back in until my water or gas runs out.
Plus where i live backcountry sites avg cost is $12-18 per night.
It even held up to my 2 kids constant phone charging and running a fan 24/3
I highly recommend it for back country aficionados, nothing but smiles knowing with confidence you can bail off the grid at a moments notice ! ! ! !
