Off grid solar
Looking for a package system to power 2 travel trailers. The choices are dizzying.

Any suggestions?

Package system included panels, batteries, inverter...

You won’t be able to run the air conditioning most likely unless you going really big.

Huge investment. Buddy did it in Mississippi. He is powering an entire camp. You will still need generator back up. Think I remember it was over thirty grand by the time it was all said and done.

re: Off grid solar
You havent provided enough information to get started. Whats your total power draw per day. How many days maximum will you stay? Those are just a few questions to even get started calculating this. Id recommend a generator unless you feel like replacing batteries on the regular when the meth heads come steal them.

re: Off grid solar
As others have noted, it is big and costly plus it is very doubtful you can actually power an entire trailer. Here in MO, there is a major push for solar and we recently met with a company.

Their setup is what I wanted because it takes you off the power grid with some large Generac backup batteries. However, it costs $70k + and would only provide just over 50% of our electrical needs. Those numbers don’t make sense for me.

Would be like 40+ years of $100+ electric bills.

Yeah and there is a zero percent chance those batteries last long enough to get to a break even point.
