Expert Answers about Go Power

  • Will Two 12V Batteries be Enough to Power the 3000W Go Power Inverter # 34275013 for a Short Time
  • You can use two 12V batteries to power the Go Power Inverter # 34275013 but that all depends on what size 12V batteries you plan on using what "short periods of use" means. I reached out to my contact at Go Power and he said that if you are using deep cycle batteries and the load is not too excessive then you should be fine. For example, if you were trying to pull the full 3000 Watts out of the inverter that would be about 26 Amps AC or 260 Amps DC. If you were to run this for a half...

  • Can RV Solar Kit Be Expanded with Additional Solar Panels?
  • Go Power Retreat Solar Charging Kit w/ Digital Controller - 100 Watts - 5.43 Amp # 34272635 is expandable to multiple panels using the Go Power Retreat-E Expansion Kit - 100 Watts - 5.43 Amp # 34272634.

  • Using Other Solar Panels to Create Go Power Solar Extreme Charging Kit
  • To create the Go Power Solar Extreme Charging System # 34282552 without the solar panels would take quite a bit of piecing together. But at it's core would be the Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverter # 34279953, the remote controller # 34277742, the install kit # 342GPDCKIT4, and the solal power controller # 34276119, the # 2 of the part # 34267040, 2 of the # 34267049, and # 34273843REVA.

  • Can 45 Amp Go Power Converter/Charger be Used to Replace 40 Amp Converter/Charger on Trailer
  • If your battery has a max current of 45 amps then yes, the Go Power Smart Battery Converter Charger # 34266168 can be used for your application. My contact at Go Power said that this charger wouldn't be compatible with their batteries as they are rated for a max of 30 amps. Your 30 amp supply is actually different than your battery. What you want to do is find out the amp hours of your battery and choose something that is rated for about 30% of your amp hours. For example, if your battery...

  • Solar Panel Kit for 2016 Wildcat Maxx 36 Prewired for Go Power Panels
  • I forwarded this to the engineer at Go Power Solar and they responded with this: Each controller will handle ~600 watts, so with 6 panels you have reached the upper limit of the number of panels that can be added with this system. The only other options would be to hook up two separate banks of 4 panels in parallel. In order to do this the panels are wired on the roof would have to be changed from series to parallel and branch connector and extra cable would need to be purchased. ...

  • Solar Panel Kit Ability to Run Air Conditioner 24/7
  • The Go Power Solar All-Electric Kit - 680 Watts # 34275010 will not be enough to power the air conditioner unit 24/7. The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner w/ Ceiling Vent and Start Capacitor - White # ACM135C will have a running wattage of 1,450 and the Atwood # AT15025-21 will run at 1,265 watts so the power draw is substantial and when using the Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverter - 1500 Watt - 12V # 34279950 you will have the power to run it, but the battery bank will deplete as the solar...

  • Can Additional Solar Panels be Added to Go Power Weekender ISW Charging System
  • You can add some extra panels to the Go Power Weekender ISW Charging System # 34282551 so that the output of the solar panels is closer to the 30 Amps you are looking for. All you need to do is add two of the Go Power Overlander-E 190 Watt Solar Expansion Kit # 34282182. These come with everything you need to add them to the Weekender ISW system as long as you have room to mount all three 59-1/8" long x 26-5/16" wide x 1-1/2" deep panels next to each other.

  • Parts Needed to Charge Auxiliary 12V Battery in Van During Travel
  • The first thought people tend to jump to is charging an additional battery via the alternator. The problem with this solution is that unless you are only powering smaller accessories like cell phones the alternator won't be able to sufficiently charge your auxiliary battery. For this case a solar panel system like the Go Power Kit # 34273836 with an Entry Plate # 34276245 would be your best bet. If you can tell me how many amps your accessories are rated for and how long you plan on...

  • Recommended Inverter to Power RV Fridge From Two 12V Batteries
  • If your 12V batteries are wired in series for 12V output, the Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverter # 34279948 that you were looking at should work great to power your RV fridge. This pure sine wave inverter provides 1,000 watts of continuous output power, more than enough for your fridge that draws 6.61 amps. Having both your batteries run in series will also extend its run time when powered. I have attached a short video demonstration on this inverter and the instructions manual that you...

  • Go Power Solar Panel Installation on Lance Camper
  • The Go Power 100-Watt Solar Flex Kit # 34272630 includes a digital controller and so does the 80-Watt Eco Kit # 34272627. Since you need only one controller I suggest adding the expansion panel to avoid having duplicate parts. You can use the Go Power Retreat-E Expansion Kit # 34272634 which has a panel that measures 47-1/16 long x 21-7/16 wide x 1-3/8 deep along with the Go Power Eco Solar Kit # 34272627 which has a panel that is 30-3/4 long x 26-1/2 wide x 1-3/8 deep.

  • Is Solar Controller/Maintainer/Regulator Required for Go Power Eco Solar Kit # 34273836
  • I reached out to my contact at Go Power who said that a solar controller (or maintainer), which is what I believe you mean by regulator, isn't required for the Go Power Eco Solar Kit # 34273836 since it is a smaller unit. They did say that if you went any larger then they would recommend using one.

  • Recommended Solar Panel to Maintain Two Group 27 Batteries in Storage
  • In order to keep the two group 27 batteries on your 2016 Jayco Trailer maintained while in storage I recommend using the Go Power Eco Solar Kit part # 34273837. This kit will provide your batteries with up to a 1.14 amp maximum power current which will be plenty for a maintenance charge. The best feature of this kit is the digital controller which allows you to monitor the condition of your batteries and prevents them from overcharging. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Go Power Solar Kit for Country Coach Affinity Motorhome with Four 8D Battery Bank
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Go Power and he said you won't need an additional inverter or transfer switch based on your current system. Having 6000 Watts already available won't require you to have an additional transfer switch or inverter. The Go Power Solar Extreme Charging System - 510 Watts # 34282552 has the inverter included which you don't need. My recommendation is the Go Power Solar Flex Kit w/ Digital Controller - 500 Watts - 28.4 Amp # 34275012. This kit will...

  • The manual for the Go Power Extreme Solar kit part # 34282552 states that connecting to the batteries directly is the best way make the connections to them. If you have a transfer switch between battery banks though you'd need to charge through that so that you aren't attempting to charge different battery banks at various states of charge. I attached a picture that shows the portion of the install instructions that covers the battery connections.

  • Recommended Go Power Solar Power Setup for Stationary Travel Trailer

  • Can I use the Go Power Weekender and Go Power Portable Panel in Conjunction With One Another
  • The Go Power Portable Solar Kit Part # 34282610 can be wired to the 30 amp controller that came with the 190 Watt Weekender kit part # 34282183. Basically you want to splice the wires from the Portable Solar kit into the wires going to the 30 amp controller. The 30 amp controller can handle 500 watts of solar power. The Weekender produces 190 watts and the Portable kit produces 200 watts of power so the 30 Amp works fine. I confirmed this with Go Power. If you do not want to splice you...

  • Is Time Delay Feature on Go Power Transfer TS-30 Switch 34264403 Manual or Automatic
  • The instructions for the Go Power Transfer Switch # 34264403 do refer to a "time delay module" that automatically gives generators a brief time to warm up and stabilize their output before it is connected to the load side of the system. This is not a switch you need to operate. The automatic delay feature allows between 15 and 20 seconds for stabilization. I confirmed this with my contact at Go Power. This feature can be bypassed but Go Power recommends leaving it active for safety...

  • What is the Benefit of Using Two 6V Batteries and One 12V Battery
  • The benefit of using 2 batteries rated for 6V along with 1 battery rated for 12V is that you are using less space (and less weight per battery when moving them) to get the same amount of power and amp hours that you would get if you were to use 3 batteries rated for 12V. The typical amp/hour rating for a 6V battery is 200. When you connect these in series so that they are compatible with the 12V battery (and your trailer electrical needs) that means you have 2 batteries connected for...

  • What is the Best Solar Panel Setup for a 2019 Coleman 1805RB

The best way to do this is to go camping like you would normally while monitoring your batteries. The only thing you will need is a battery monitor. What you will want to do is fully charge your batteries then monitor them each day. This should then give you a good idea of many amp hours...

  • Can 24 Volt Inverter be Used With 12 Volt System
  • If you have a 12V system on your trailer you will need to use an inverter rated for 12V such as the Go Power Heavy-Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter - 12V # 34280178. You would not be able to use an inverter rated for a 24V system like the Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverter - 24V # 34279953. I have added a cutout of the instructions for this unit which details that.
