RV solar panel installed by an Outside Supply Customer:
I had a customer call who had just bought a Lance Truck Camper and they wanted to power it from solar. He had a great idea of installing the solar on a roof rack, which is great! This was nice because he has access to tie them together and work on them easily. It even helped reduce shading from the AC unit.
Installing panels on a Lance camper. Getting a solar panel installed on your lance camper will depend if your camper is prewired. May of them these days are prewired, but don’t worrk there are choices for you if your Lance does not already have the wiring.
It appears that most Lance Campers have prewired connections. Many models offer options to handle upto 2 100 watt solar panels. Size is important when looking at solar panels for smaller truck campers.
