If you are an energy-conscious RV owner, the Go Power Solar Elite charging system provides clean, renewable power and independence from the grid. This kit comes with everything you need to charge your RV batteries with sunlight. Using 6 solar panels, this system collects solar energy to create DC power that passes through 2 solar controllers to charge your RV batteries.


How It Works


Collecting Solar Power

go power solar panel

The charging process starts with the solar panels, which install on the roof of your RV. When solar energy interacts with the silicon cells in each panel, it generates a flow of DC electrical current that charges your RV's batteries. Each of the monocrystalline cells is made from a single crystal of silicon, so the electrons that create the current have more space to move, making these panels more efficient than one with polycrystalline cells. And in optimal sunlight conditions, the panels produce 1,140 watts per hour.


solar cells

The silicon cells are set between a cushioned backing material and tempered solar glass to withstand the elements. The glass has low-iron content to provide exceptional transparency, which ensures maximum sunlight collection. Finally, each panel is framed with anodized marine-grade aluminum to resist rust and corrosion.


go power adjustable arms

An adjustable mount kit (sold separately) can increase your solar panel performance by angling it for maximum sun exposure. This kit replaces the panel's existing brackets and allows it to tilt at 3 different angles. This also improves solar charging during winter months when the sun is lower in the sky.


Charging and Protecting RV Battery Bank

mppt 40 amp solar controller

The solar controllers are connected in parallel to prevent harmful overcharging by adjusting the power generated by the solar panels before it reaches your batteries. They use maximum power point tracking technology to compare solar output to battery voltage and convert that output to an optimal amperage. Typically, this type of technology is a good fit for larger systems with higher voltages. This kit also includes a fixed-mount remote that installs inside your RV.


Using a multistage charging system, each controller automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. Each controller is compatible with multiple battery types and includes preset charging profiles for sealed/gel, AGM, and flooded/wet cell batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Bulk: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. As the name suggests, this is where the bulk of the charging happens. It typically charges the battery to at least 80% capacity.
  2. Absorption: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery reaches between 80% to 90% capacity, the absorption state will kick in and start charging at a regulated voltage. In each charging profile, this mode is set to last for 30 minutes after the bulk charge is completed.
  3. Float: Once the battery reaches full charge, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: On flooded/wet cell batteries, this mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended float cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

mppt solar controller remote

The fixed-mount remote with backlit, digital display acts as an information center for your solar panel output. It shows the charging current, battery voltage, and battery state of charge. It allows you to input your battery type and choose a charging profile. The remote also lets you use Maximum Power Boost Technology. You can simply press a button to activate Bulk mode for the highest charging voltage. This lets you quickly top off your battery bank before the end of the day by capturing as much power as possible.


Each solar controller comes with a sensor that enables temperature compensated charging. As a controller experiences changes in temperature, the sensor compensates for those changes by adjusting the voltage during charging to help extend the life of your batteries. This protects from overcharging in hot temperatures and undercharging in cold temperatures.


Lastly, each controller includes several built-in safety features to help protect your equipment. The charging process will shut down if a controller starts to overheat and when an overcurrent is detected. Also, if the battery or solar panel is wired incorrectly, it activates a reverse polarity alarm.


How It Installs

solar ae-6 how it installs

The system includes (6) 190-watt solar panels, (2) 40-amp MPPT solar controllers, a circuit breaker, a solar disconnect, MC4 cables, and all the necessary installation hardware.


  1. Solar Panel: The solar panels install anywhere on your RV roof with included mounting feet and hardware. To maximize sunlight collection, it is important to install the panels where they avoid shadows cast by objects, like an air conditioner or vent. The panels use MC4 cables and branch connectors to connect to the solar controller. These cables can enter the RV using the Go Power cable entry plate. This provides a covered housing and uses a quick connect setup for the MC4 cables.
  2. Solar Controller: The solar controllers vertically mount to a wall near the battery compartment. The manual includes a mounting template with measurements to ensure proper installation. They connect in parallel with the included cable. They are wired to the solar panels using MC4 cables. Then, the battery bank is wired to the terminals on a controller. To install the battery temperature sensor, the ring terminal is installed to the battery and the terminal block is plugged into the controller's temperature port.
  3. Solar Controller Remote: The remote flush-mounts to a wall inside your RV. The manual includes a mounting template with measurements to ensure proper installation. It simply plugs into the solar controller with the included cable.
  4. Solar Disconnect: The solar disconnect installs between the solar panels and solar controller. This device lets you shut off power to the solar controller for maintenance.
  5. Circuit Breaker: The circuit breaker is installed between the solar controller and battery bank to protect your equipment.

Note: This kit may require more wiring and additional parts depending on your RV setup.

  • How to Determine Watt Output of Solar Panel
    Calculating available power from a solar panel setup includes the watt, volt and amp figures because there is a fixed relationship between them. Watts = volts x amps. 2295 watts = 12V x 191-amps. This means your 12V solar setup would have to output 191 amps in order to support a power demand of 2295 watts. As an example, our Go Power Solar AE-6 solar system # 342-75011 is rated 1140-watts. At 12V this means it can provide a maximum current of 95-amps. I linked a series of our helpful...

  • Longest Available 30A Extension Cord
    You can use an extension cord like the MightyCord 50' RV Extension Cord # A10-3050EH , which is the longest cord we have available, but that isn't going to be long enough. If you were to try connecting several cords together, you're going to have a significant power loss-especially at that distance, and you're going to find that your RV won't get the power/charge it requires. Honestly, for 200ft you're likely either going to want to find a place closer to your home to park the RV or...
