If you love camping and spending time in the great outdoors, but don't want to be disconnected from all the comforts of home, Way's Elite solar power products for RVs are your boondocking solution.
Our Elite solar panels, charge controllers, 12-volt batteries, and inverters provide reliable power for your recreational vehicle. Campsites provide all the power RVers need when connected to shore power. But if you want to get off the grid, away from crowds of a campsite, you'll need to utilize other power sources like solar to power essentials like 12-volt appliances, electronics, lighting, air conditioning, and more.
Solar solutions give an adventurous RVer more capabilities, more freedom, and more power, even when disconnected. Learn about Elite by Way's solar products and see how they make a complete system for better boondocking.
Solar Panels for RVs from Elite
RV solar panels are a type of photovoltaic (PV) panel specifically designed to
provide power to recreational vehicles. The most common use for RV solar panels is to provide electricity to the RV while camping off the grid. This allows you to enjoy all the amenities of your rig while still being able to enjoy nature and disconnect.
Solar panels for RVs, both portable and mounted, come in a variety of sizes and wattages, so it is important to select the right panel for your needs. How many solar panels does each vehicle require? It depends on the length of time off the grid and how much power is needed to run necessities. Elite by Way RV solar panel and solar expansion kits (including a panel, connectors, and y-cords) will either add or expand your RV's solar capabilities. Our solar panels are designed for easy installation, to be long-lasting, and to be low-profile and easy to overlook.

12-Volt Batteries for RV Solar Power
12-volt batteries are an essential part of any RV solar system. They store the
power generated by the solar panels and then provide power to the RV when needed. 12V batteries can be traditional lead-acid, absorbed glass mat, or the lithium-ion variety.
Elite by Way offers a variety of 12-volt lithium-ion batteries, including the most RV-friendly, the LiFePO4 or lithium iron phosphate. Lithium iron phosphate batteries offer significant advantages, including improved discharge and charge efficiency, a longer life span, no maintenance, and the ability to deep cycle while maintaining power.
With so many different configurations, applications and needs, RV owners know finding a battery that checks all the boxes can be a challenge. With the help of our experienced team, we can assure you have the right battery for your RV solar system.
A charge controller is vital to powering your vehicle off the grid and regulating
your battery. It helps to keep the voltage and current going into the battery at a healthy level, preventing damage and maximizing its life.
When the batteries are in a discharged state, the controller will allow maximum power through to recharge the battery as fast as possible. When a charge controller senses the batteries are fully charged, it will significantly reduce/stop what power is allowed through to avoid overcharging or damage.
Elite by Way offers PWM (pulse width modulation) models, a traditional type of charge controller that has been around for many years. It is a reliable controller that is easy to use and affordable.
An inverter is a device that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). This is important in an RV solar system because it allows you to use the
12-volt appliances and electronics in your RV while camping off the grid. Without an inverter, you would not be able to use your TV, microwave, or other devices that rely on AC power.
Elite by Way offers a pure sine wave inverter that provides a cleaner, more true AC power for sensitive devices like TVs and laptops. Having an inverter in your rig is essential to enjoy all the comforts you're used to at home while out on the road.
RVs offer a great opportunity to camp off the grid, but without solar panels and other components from Elite, there would be no way to power your RV when you're in remote locations. With our high-quality solar products that help maximize battery life and provide usable power to your necessary RV appliances and electronics, we can ensure that you have everything you need for a memorable boondocking experience.
