go power diagram weekender

If you are an energy-conscious RV owner, the Go Power Weekender ISW 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 and use that power for the AC-powered devices and appliances in your RV, like your microwave, coffee pot, and TV.


Using a solar panel, this system collects solar energy to create DC power that passes through a solar charge controller into your RV batteries. Once they are charged, the inverter uses the batteries to provide AC power to your RV. Additionally, the transfer switch lets you automatically switch from inverter to shore power when it is accessible.


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.


Powering RV Electronics and Appliances

1,500 watt pure sine wave inverter

After the battery bank has been charged, the pure sine wave inverter changes DC output into AC output and sends it to the electrical system. It creates clean power with low distortion, making it safe, efficient, and perfect for sensitive electronics like computers. Plus, the inverter can generate 2,650 starting watts and 1,500 running watts which is a great fit for appliances and electronics.


inverter outlets

The inverter includes 2 GFCI outlets for AC loads, positive and negative DC input terminals that connect to your batteries, and a port for the inverter's fixed-mount remote. It has a function switch that lets you select different output voltages (100V, 110V, 115V, and 120V) and frequencies (50Hz and 60Hz). This switch can also turn the power saver on and off.


Built-in safety features help protect your RV's electrical system. They offer protection from over/under voltage, overloading, and overcurrent. The inverter also uses a heat sink process to protect from extreme temperatures, and an internal cooling fan removes excess heat from the unit.


fixed mount inverter remote

A fixed-mount remote lets you monitor and control the inverter from inside your RV. It features LED indicators that display the voltage, output power, inverter status, power saving mode status, and fault conditions. It also has a power button that controls the inverter. These features let you know the status of your inverter without having to check the actual unit.


inverter fuse block

The DC-rated 200-amp fuse uses a slow blow time-delay feature to withstand surge current. This means it can handle short surges over 200 amps without blowing the fuse, which is great for devices with motors that require more energy to start.


polycarbonate case

The fuse is housed in a polycarbonate block that features an insulated fiberglass reinforced base. The block has a V-0 flame-retardant rating, which means it will stop burning within 10 seconds if a fire were to occur. It also comes with a transparent cover to keep the connections protected.


Automatically Switches to Shore Power

go power pre-wired automatic transfer switch

The automatic transfer switch selects the primary source of AC current. Because this system utilizes solar power, the transfer switch has been pre-wired to automatically change from inverter to shore power to conserve battery life. To prevent electrical interruptions, the time delay circuit board allows the alternate power source to stabilize before a transfer occurs. Additionally, since the switch only accepts one active source, it protects your electrical system from dangerous backfeed that can damage your equipment.


transfer switch wiring

It also includes an inverter output plug and converter input receptacle that help speed up installation time. This converter input is only active when shore power is available, ensuring the converter does not use battery power for charging.


How It Installs

go power weekender isw part list

The system includes a 190-watt solar panel, a 1,500-watt pure sine wave inverter with a fixed-mount remote, a 30-amp PWM solar controller, a transfer switch, a fuse block, 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.
  3. Inverter: The inverter mounts inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. It should be installed in close proximity to the battery bank, but not in the same compartment. The DC terminals are wired to the battery bank, and the Automatic Transfer Switch plugs into one of the GFCI outlets.
  4. Inverter Remote: The remote flush mounts to a wall inside your RV and connects to the inverter with the included telephone cable. The manual includes a mounting template with measurements to ensure proper installation.
  5. Fuse Block: The fuse block is installed between the inverter and battery bank to protect your equipment.
  6. Automatic Transfer Switch: The automatic transfer switch is connected to the inverter, shore power cable, converter charger, and AC panel. With this pre-wired version, you can easily plug into the inverter and converter charger with no wiring required. However, it does need to be wired to the AC panel and shore power input.

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