KIT2015 - Zamp Solar 170 Watt Dual Battery Bank Roof Mount Kit for RVs with Dual Battery Banks
Zamp Solar 170 Watt Dual Battery Bank Roof Mount Kit (KIT2015) comes with a 30 Amp Dual Battery Bank Solar Charge Controller giving you the option to charge two different battery banks at one time, meaning each battery bank is totally separate from the other. Having two or more batteries tied together is not a dual battery bank. With the dual settings you can set the controller to charge each battery bank at a different rate.
The 170 Watt Class A USA Made monocrystalline solar panel delivers 9.4 amps per hour in optimal conditions and provides 50 to 65 amps per day depending on sun light. This is a premium hand crafted product, US made in Bend, Oregon exclusively for the RV market from absolutely the finest quality available. Panels have been consistently tested at 10-12% over the rated wattage.
What can you can expect from the Zamp Solar 170 Watt Dual Battery Bank Roof Mount Kit:
For most campers/RVers this solar kit will charge and maintain your batteries to use lighting, water pump, propane refrigerator (uses a small amount of 12 volt power), stereo system, slide-outs, self-levelers, propane sniffer, and some heater use (propane heaters also use some 12 volt power). For those camping in colder whether and higher heating demands, adding an extra 170 Watt panel is advised.
For higher power users that want to use some 110 devices and a power inverter, you may need to look at our larger wattage kits or add two additional panels to this 170 Watt kit.
For long extended trips you would benefit by adding an extra 170 Watt solar panel to this 170 Watt Dual Battery Bank Kit. All Zamp Roof Mount Kits can be mixed and matched. This 170 Watt Dual Battery Bank Kit is expandable up to 510 Watts (2 more 170 Watt panels).
KIT2015 also comes with mounting feet, 3 port roof cap (add two additional panels at a later time), and all wires and connectors needed to get you to your batteries.
USA Made 170 Watt Panel Features:
- AR coated glass- This highly efficient anti-reflective coating allows for maximum light transparency and absorption. Also called “Smart Glass”, it repels water and dust from the surface.
- Tempered safety glass. Similar to what is used in automotive windshields.
- Type A Monocrystalline solar cells from Solar World (Hillsboro, OR).
- 170 Watt rating on these modules is consistently testing higher at 175-180 Watts.
- Channel frame rail system for mounting feet. This will allow movement of the mounting feet up and down all sides of the frame for a more ideal mounting placement of the panel.
- Rigid frame construction. Our newly reinforced frame is extremely solid and durable. A vast improvement from the previous style panels on the market today.
The average boondocking or dry camping RV’er is likely to use between 20 and 30 Amps a day. On an average summer day of 6 to 7 hours of optimal sunlight expect to get 50 to 58 Amps, and during winter with 5 to 6 hours of optimal sunlight expect to get 42 to 50 Amps with our 170 Watt kit. Add up to two more 170 Watt panels at any time with our expansion kits.
