Go Power Solar panels are now more efficient in the same footprint
Updated July 2020
More efficient solar kits is what Go Power keeps striving for. They are increasing their wattage from identical footprint panels almost across the board. For example, over the last few years, they have raised the wattage rating on their Overlander kit from 160 watts to a new panel that has 190 watts of power. More efficient solar kits is good news for the RV market because larger arrays can now sit atop units across the world. This allows for fast charging of battery banks.
This 30-watt increase in power can really make a difference in total watts in a large Go Power solar array. For example in an All-Electric 6 Solar Panel (AE-6) setup, a user gets about an extra 180 watts of solar charging power. That is almost like adding another panel.
There is talk of more efficient Go Power panels on the horizon, who knows where this will lead us when paired with better battery technologies. Maybe one day we can run our RV air conditioning on solar.
The answer to your off-grid refrigerator might just be the Go Power AE-6 kit
Refrigerators in Class A, Class B and Fifth Wheels have gone to residential types. These residentials types will not runn off of your battery bank alone. You need an inverter, a large battery abnk and solar panels to operate seamlessly. A generator on board is always a good choice as well.

Designed for refrigerators and larger loads
More power from the sun for faster recharge times
Just add a battery bank of 500 to 1000 amp hours, and this kit will usually support your fridge off-grid. There will always be low light weeks where a short generator run or plugin will kepp you going. The AE-6 has the power to keep it charging and running. The six in the name is for 6 solar panels.
