A Zamp 160 on a TrilliumThe 170 Watt Economy RV system is a top quality entry level solar system that is an excellent choice for Rvers with moderate 12 volt electrical demands, or limited roof space. The 170 watt Economy system utilizes a made in USA Zamp US 170 solar panel and a Blue Sky SC30 three stage pulse width modulation solar charge controller. All components of this system are made in the USA.

The 170 Watt Economy System can produce 47 to 65 amp hours per day under clear sunny skies*. This system will give you electrical independence and is a great starting point for those new to RV solar electric systems. The 170 Economy System can charge Gel, AGM or lead acid batteries commonly used in today's RV's.

The 170 Watt Economy Solar System is expandable to 340 watts! If in the future you find that you'd like more solar power it is possible to add a second 170 watt module to the existing system.

The Blue Sky  Energy Sun Charger SC30 charge controller is a flush mounted controller that we'll install in an interior wall somewhere in your RV. The black face plate blends in nicely with RV interiors. The easy to read red digital display provides battery voltage, array current (amps) and total amps produced. The SC30 has a battery equalization mode and the display can be completely turned off at night.

Battery Storage Capacity: We recommend a minimum 80 amp hour battery bank for the 170 Watt RV Economy System. We stock a full line of Interstate deep cycle batteries at our Granby, Colorado shop.

Tech Notes: Pictured above is a small Trillium bumper pull trailer with a Zamp US 160 on the roof. The panel is mounted to the fiberglass roof with six of our exclusive no drill Sticky Feet solar panel mounts. The Zamp solar panel is wired to a Blue Sky Energy 2512i-HV solar controller. A Blue Sky Energy IPN remote display provides the owner with system voltage and array output.
