Go Power! Weekender SW Complete Solar and Inverter System with 160 Watts of Solar

The Weekender SW kit is designed for anyone that would like the benefit of solar power to charge their batteries, and the ability to use AC appliances when there is no utility power available. For example you can run a microwave, TV, blender, audio sound equipment, computers and more. The Weekender kit contains a 160 Watt solar charging kit and a 1500 Watt pure sine wave inverter system. The Weekender includes everything you need to hook the solar and inverter system up to your batteries and install the solar panel on a flat surface. The Weekender is great for charging your RV, boat, cottage and cabin batteries, while providing you with AC power without the noise of a generator or the fuel and maintenance cost that goes with it. The kit is excellent for weekend and long weekend trips, and is expandable by adding up to two GP-RV-160E expansion kits (each sold separately). This allows you to take advantage of available sunlight for faster charging and added capacity. Go Power! recommends at least a 200 amp hour battery bank for the Weekender SW kit.

    Gone Solar – and glad I did! I’ve wanted to go solar with my rv for several years. I’ve gotten estimates, gone back and forth over what I needed, etc. My rv is small, but my goal was big – to hopefully not ever need my generator. Well, with this system and adding a 2nd solar panel (and 3 more aux batteries) I’ve done it. I actually had my generator taken out and this system installed. Because I removed the generator, the system was installed through it’s connections and I didn’t need the controller included. Made installation a tad easier. It’s only been a week, but I’ve been using solar only – and only had one sunny day. The overcast/cloudy days have still recharged the batteries (and I’ve needed to run my heat every night) and during the sunny day I put things to a test – vacuuming, etc – and it kept up with me.I can run my microwave, but that’s really pulling the charges – so don’t intend to while boondocking (I never used the ac when boondocking before, so that’s not a loss). I also added…

    Great system We bought the Go Power Weekender solar and inverter package, so we could keep the batteries charged on the RV, and also have the ability to run the TV at night as well as the microwave without running our generator. The kit came with everything we needed to install the solar panel and the 1500 watt inverter including a 30 amp transfer switch. This was actually a very nice addition because it makes it so when the inverter is on, all of the outlets in the RV still work just like when we are plugged in at an RV park. The solar has kept the 2 6 volt batteries that we have on the RV topped up even on fairly cloudy days. We may need to add another panel down the road for the trips over a week but for now we have found the system has been perfect. I would recommend this system for anyone that wants a complete plug and play solar and inverter system. Once it was installed we have not really had a need for the generator unless we are using the Air Conditioner a lot. The system has definitely…
