Find Solar Charge Controller in Coachman Spirit XTR


Questions?: Trying to locate the solar charge controller on my 2022 Coachmen Spirt XTR RV

Type of RV:

2022 Coachmen spirit xtr

Info from Coachman on your travel trailer

The Northern Spirit XTR is the first travel trailer to utilize Max Bed Storage, a unique storage concept that maximizes interior bedroom storage by lifting the entire mattress frame up. Revolutionizing under bed storage, the Max Bed Storage system includes 3 oversized drawers, shoe storage, padded bench seat, 6 “catch-all” openings, Laundry Center and blanket/pillow storage!

Found a video showing a charge controller when reviewing a Coachmen travel trailer. At 17:34 in the video they discuss the solar controller.

It seems the 10 amp controller is pretty simple and in the cabinets.

Are you looking for where your prewired solar cables are in your RV?

A program designed to help the consumer with solar panel installs has caused them a lot of grief due to hard to find cable locations and wiring diagrams. Here are a few reasons why RVers have had issues with the prewired or Wired for solar program.

  • Sticker is removed at dealer prep
  • Sticker is place in wrong place in RV
  • Proper docmentation on controller and solar wiring not done well
  • The program would be better optimized if a small controller would actually be installed with all the wiring hooked. Small so it is cheap to aquire and is easily replaced with a new controller. Charge controllers are having a lot of changes coming to them as the industry heads to RV-C. This will mean the controller will be stored away and the panel to monitor it could be centralized or unified in your RV. Lets hope the RV-C makes the drop points easier to find and identify. Here are a few articles we have written to help you find the cables meant to run to the charge controller.
