Thanks in advance!
You need to answer a few questions before you move on.
- How long do you dry-camp? Week end?, Week? Longer?
- Do you use or plan on using an inverter? To watch TV? Microwave? Charge your electronics? ...
- Are you going to mount them on the roof? Portable?
- Do you camp in SHADED areas only?
There is a lot of good reading in our "RVing with SOLAR" Social Group... the link is below.
Air is out of the picture ($$$$$)... but a lot of 12VDC fans are not. IF you camp in the southwest (DRY) regions, a "SWAMP" cooler could be done on SOLAR.
