If you are an energy-conscious RV owner, the Go Power Overlander solar 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 a solar panel, this system collects solar energy to create DC power that passes through a solar controller to charge your RV batteries.


How It Works


Collecting Solar Power

go power solar panel

The charging process starts with the solar panel, which installs on the roof of your RV. When solar energy interacts with the silicon cells in the 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 this panel more efficient than one with polycrystalline cells. And in optimal sunlight conditions, the panel produces 190 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, the 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

go power solar controller

The solar controller prevents harmful overcharging by adjusting the power generated by the solar panel before it reaches your batteries. It uses pulse width modulation technology to regulate the output through pulses that provide a consistent charge. Typically, this type of technology is a good fit for smaller systems with lower voltages.


Using a multistage charging system, the 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. The controller is compatible with multiple battery types and includes preset charging profiles for sealed/gel, AGM, flooded/wet cell, and lithium 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.

With 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.


solar controller terminals

This solar controller is built to charge two battery banks and has terminals for a primary and secondary battery. Your primary battery will receive the full current until it is completely charged. Then, your secondary battery will start to draw the charge current.


solar controller digital display

The 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 also allows you to input your battery type and choose a charging profile. Additionally, a built-in USB port on the front of the controller provides a convenient outlet to charge your cell phone or tablet.


Lastly, the controller includes several built-in safety features to help protect your equipment. The charging process will shut down if the 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

overlander how it installs

The system includes a 190-watt solar panel, a 30-amp PWM solar controller, MC4 cables, and all the necessary installation hardware.


  1. Solar Panel: The solar panel installs anywhere on your RV roof with included mounting feet and hardware. To maximize sunlight collection, it is important to install the panel where it avoids shadows cast by objects, like an air conditioner or vent. The panel uses MC4 cables to connect to the solar controller. These cables can enter the RV through the refrigerator vent or using a Go Power cable entry plate (sold separately). The cable entry plate provides a covered housing and uses a quick connect setup for the MC4 cables.
  2. Solar Controller: The solar controller flush-mounts to a wall inside your RV. The manual includes a mounting template with measurements to ensure proper installation. It is wired to the solar panel using MC4 cables. Then, the battery bank is wired to the primary terminals on the controller. If you are using additional batteries, they can be connected to the secondary terminals. The included 30-amp fuse is installed between the solar controller and battery for additional current protection.

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

  • Connecting Solar Panel and Controller to Battery in Horse Trailer
    A complete solar power system that includes the panel and the solar controller, such as our Go Power Overlander Solar Charging System # 34282181, connects to your RV battery. The panel and controller deliver charging power to the battery, not directly to your trailer lights. It is not necessary to run new/additional wiring to the lights; they will function off the battery power as they did before the unfinished solar installation was done. The controller will prevent overcharging of your...

  • How Many Solar Panels Are Needed To Power a 5th Wheel Trailer
    A solar panel such as the Go Power Overlander Solar Charging System part # 34282181 does not directly power any of the accessories on your trailer. Instead, it will be used to charge the battery bank which will then be used to power the accessories on your trailer. That said, it can be rather difficult to estimate how much solar you need as there are just too many variables involved such as what your actual power requirements are and the amount of direct sunlight your panels will receive....

  • Can One 200 Amp Lithium Battery be Used with Go Power 1,140 Watt Solar Panel System
    Technically yes the Go Power Solar AE-6 All Electric System with 2 MPPT Solar Controllers # 342-75011 will provide enough power for your 200 A/H Lithium battery, but it is way overkill for your needs as this is meant for a 600 A/H battery bank. For your application something like part # 34272635 or part # 34282181 would be better suited for your application. If you want to use the kit that you referenced I highly recommend expanding your battery bank to at least 6 batteries so that...

  • Recommended Solar Panels for Class A Motorhome with Two 6 Volt Batteries
    In order to achieve 350+ watts of solar energy you would need a larger battery bank as you would overload the solar controller with only two batteries. The Go Power Solar Flex Charging System part # 34275012 for example provides 500 watts of solar energy but requires a six battery bank. The Go Power Overlander Solar Charging System part # 34282181 which provides 190 watts of solar energy is the most you can run with a two battery bank. I have attached a list of all our solar panel kits...

  • Can I Install A Portable Satellite Dish In My RV
    It really depends on your service. If you already a DISH customer then you would need to purchase a portable satellite antenna that is compatible with the DISH service. DISH says that it depends on the RV wiring whether you can wire into the RV wiring to connect the Antenna. Most likely your satellite provider would want to install it for you.
