Power to spare!

Pros: good value (dollars per watt), the sharp solar panels are very good quality
Cons: the solar panel warranty does not cover campers
"I installed these solar panels on my camper.
In the past I could camp for three days without Hydro, (using two camper batteries), before I would have to recharge.
I installed the solar panels and just finished 10 days of camping without Hydro and had power to spare. I could have kept going indefinately. I was impressed because we camped under thick tree cover and did not get direct sunlight. Also, it rained for two full days.
In direct sunlight I was able to get 10 amps of charging current.
In the shade I was able to get 1 amp of charging current (on average, less when it was raining).
I shopped arround before buying this package and could not find a better deal if you consider dollars per Watt. The tester, charge controller and inverter are a bonus."

Excellent investment

Pros: easy to install and very little upkeep.
"I bought these solar panels last fall and never got to use them untill this spring, they have worked beyond my expectations and makes our RV life much more enjoyable."
