Hi I was looking @ your photo looks like your controller HPV-22B Heliotrope HPV-22 Series of Solar Charge Controllers


I am having a new system put in this weekend. I can't wait to do a boon-doggle. Here is a link for AM solar.

I have a 1987 Airstream 345. What would it cost, including labor, to install something like this?

We are thinking about solar panels for the Overlander, but it isn't cheap. A couple of panels will run around $1000. Add a couple of hundred for mounting and a couple of hundred more for a controller. I would guess that it's a great system for keeping batteries charged and "boondocking," but perhaps not cost effective for folks spending most of their time in campgrounds.
