12v Solar Panel - Solar Panels for Caravans, Solar Panels for Motorhomes

Motorhome solar panels, caravan solar panels and campervan solar panels - on this page you will find the latest 12v solar panel generations as well as the established and proven 12v solar panel. The 12v solar panel as solar panels for caravans, solar panels for motorhomes or solar panels for campervans are characterized by high efficiency, high stability and high-quality workmanship. The 12v solar panel is framed in aluminium and has a glass-like cover to protect the monocrystalline cells.

You do not have a holder on your roof or would like to have complete component parts as a kit? Have a look at our flexible solar panels and 12V Solar Panel Kits, 12VSolar Panel Kit!

More information about 12v solar panels, solar panels for motorhomes and solar panels for caravans can be found below!

12v Solar Panel: Solar panels for motorhomes, solar panels for caravans and solar panels for campervans - your self-sufficient power supply

The advantages of solar panels for motorhomes and solar panels for caravans:
  • Get free solar energy for supplying your motorhome, caravan or boat with electrical power
  • Electric power supply in your motorhome or caravan at every time, irrespective of outlets
  • You are mobile without worrying about electricity
  • Silent and low-maintenance power generation with a camping solar panel, solar battery and solar controller
  • Environmentally friendly power generation and power supply

12v solar panels offer comfort on near to nature campsites

12v solar panels, low-priced purchase and long-lasting terms. Do you prefer a near to nature vacation in your motorhome, caravan, camper or boat? Then you should get a resource-saving variant in the sector of power supply for camper. Motorhome solar panels, caravan solar panels and campervan solar panels are very popular. Because from a daily total power consumption of 100 watts, it is worthwhile to ensure the power supply in the motorhome via 12v solar panels. The 12v solar panel is simply integrated into the existing electrical system and produces energy even in partial shade.
  • The module junction boxes of the 12v solar panel should be waterproof when the wind is blowing.
  • The aluminium frame construction must withstand twisting and buoyant forces.
  • The solder joints must not be damaged by vibrations.
Important for solar panels for motorhomes is a low construction height. For solar panels for caravans, solar panels for campervans and marine solar panels there are flexible solar panels which can directly be glued on the roof. The flexible solar panels absolutely make sense as an alternative.

Couple caravan solar panels, motorhome solar panels or campervan solar panels - 12v solar panel 80 watts, 100 watts, 120 watts for adequate power

Individually expand 12v solar panel 80 watts, 100 watts, 120 watts, no problem. Of course, it is preferable to connect an identical 12v solar panel. If they should be different, not identical, visit our brief advice: Important is the open circuit voltage, if this open circuit voltage is almost the same for both 12v solar panels then it should not be a problem to connect them. The 12v solar panel can be operated with a solar charge controller, Mppt charge controller. However, the components of your solar power system should be adapted to the 12v solar panel with the higher current flow. However, if the solar cells for your motorhome are too different, you will need to connect your solar charge controller to the solar battery. The solar battery has to be properly designed and calculated for your motorhome solar panels or caravan solar panels. The needed performance for the power supply in the motorhome depends on the manner and behaviour of travelling and it also depends on the devices. You should keep an eye on the following aspects:
  • the (main-) travel destination
  • the date of travel
  • the period of travel
  • the frequency of use (seasonal or year-round)
  • the power consumption of permanently operated energy users
An approximately estimation of the needed energy can be found here Reimo Conversion - Motorhome and Campervan Solar Panels. Motorhome solar panels and caravan solar panels are available with different performances, which are indicated in Wpeak (Wp). Wpeak indicates the performance of the 12v solar panel under the standard conditions of 1000 watts/m² solar irradiation and the solar cell temperature of about 25°C (Celsius). These are ideal conditions, which are very rare because usually the actual solar energy is less. It really depends on the position of the sun, the orientation and the inclination of the solar module and possible shadowing due to area conditions or cloud cover.

Solar panels for motorhomes, solar panels for caravans - the right size of your 12v solar panels

For the solar panels for motorhomes, solar panels for caravans the required solar performance is also important. So, a small 12v solar panel with up to 50Wp is enough to maintain the battery charge for a long service life. A 12v solar panel with up to 75Wp is used for seasonal but not complete power supply in motorhomes with up to 6.5m length. A solar module with up to 150Wp is proper for seasonal and complete power supply in a motorhome from 6.5m length. For a year-round, complete power supply we recommend 12v solar panels with more than 200Wp.

How much Wp is required for my 12v solar panel?

The 12v solar panel is available in many different capacities. To calculate and estimate the required 12v solar panel size for the power supply of your motorhome, just multiply all the power of the connected loads (in watts) with the daily usage (in hours). This gives the average daily power requirement in watt-hours (Wh).
For power reserves and for long-term power supply in the motorhome about 2.5 days in summer and about 4 days in winter, the calculated electricity needs to be increased accordingly. For losses due to temperature fluctuations, conversion and adaptation processes as well as voltage losses in the cable, 10% must be added. This calculated total energy requirement must then be divided by four and you will get the approximately needed Wp-value. This result helps you to choose your proper 12v solar panel as your motorhome solar panels, campervan solar panels or caravan solar panels.

How do I save the energy gained by my 12v solar panels?

Inside the solar cell, sunlight is converted into electrical power, which is stored in a solar battery. The recall then takes place as required and needed by the consumer/device. As protection against battery overcharging and to prevent power consumption (by the solar panel in the dark) a solar charge controller is interposed. Since power generation in the solar module and power supply in the motorhome does not always take place simultaneously, the solar battery must be dimensioned accordingly. It should be noted that for a long service life, a wet battery or a maintenance-free gel battery may never be discharged completely, but only to 50% to a maximum of 60%, and therefore the solar battery storage capacity should be at least twice as high as the total energy requirement of a day. For better availability, there are up-to-date AGM and modern lithium batteries available. The power consumption is much higher than in the summer. Therefore, in winter, the power supply in the motorhome can often be implemented cost-effectively only in combination of a high-performance solar module and another energy source.
