First post to the Air Forum.
This last three days I had the pleasure along with a little hard work and hot temps of installing the AM Solar system below plus two additional panels for a total of 300 watts.
I am not an Ohms, Watts, Amps type of guy. Thats why I had my trusty father along for the."Hey dad want to help me install a solar panel or so on my Airstream?" Well he did build and wire a home or two so he gets it....
I won't bore you with the controller specs or panels and such. Check the link below for details:

Location of panels. I don't really like the TV antenna contraption so off that went and on went a panel in place along with one on the other side. I wanted to avoid the AC area at all costs. Having shadows in camping areas is bad enough, so putting more forward on the Airstream was my choice.
The best thing first off was quality of packaging marking and identification of items along with instructions were great. Both instructions from AM Solar and the ones from the individual components.
Second and most important was tech support. If you remember above I am not an electrician. Being able to call and talk us through a couple things that don't make sense in our crazy heads but after a nice explanation the light bulb finally clicked....
Dale even gave me his cell phone number over the 4th of July time period. That is class act customer service. I spent a year contemplating asking questions, reading forums. They are with out a doubt an example to all companies not just solar on how to do good business.
So give me a day or so and I will post up some pics.
Any suggestions on upgrading my batteries from my Interstate 24's would be appreciated. Can I fit 27's from Lifetime in the same box?
