Chapel Hill, NC - Solar Installation Help - FC 25RBQ

Any recommendations for folks in or around the Chapel Hill, NC area that know RV solar installations that would be willing to support in an installation (paid of course)!

Relatively new to the forums and a soon to be an Airstream owner!

We are just waiting for the right rig to come up (2014-2017 Flying Cloud25 RBQ or FBQ). We have decided to do a year (to start) on the road next year and will be working/living from our airstream.

I am looking for any local experts who may be willing to assist in a solar installation once our rig is purchased.

I have gathered pricing/system specs that will align with our needs - aiming to boondock as much as we can.

I would like to have someone like Lew (Amsolar) install - but would also LOVE to understand how everything works so that I can own any issues!

I would be very happy to help but I’m 500 miles away. I’ve done several systems and am currently working on upgrading mine.
Here’s a few blog post on my system and if you have Instagram you can follow my upgrade as it happens.

New system will be 400 watts of Renogy Eclipse panels. Feeding the Victron 100/30 charge controller.

I will do a 4 part write up in my Weekly DoItYourself RV articles soon.

Good luck with your system and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

I am a Renogy Affiliate and if you use this link and discount code you can get free shipping and save a little cash.
