  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Size Solar Panel Do I Need for a Truck Bed Camper
  • There are several factors that go into selecting the proper size solar panel. The most important factor will be how much power you are using each day. In order to determine how much power you use each day you will want to perform a trial run. The trial run can be done on your next camping trip and 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...

  • Go Power Solar Charging System for AC Power on Trailer
  • I may have a solution for you but the Go Power solar kit, part # 34268172, you referenced is only going to supply DC power to charge 12 volt batteries. Instead look at the Go Power Weekend ISW system, part # 34282551, which will power an AC system.

  • Recommended Go Power Solar Power Setup for Stationary Travel Trailer
  • For a solar panel setup to power your renovated and stationary '55 Spartan Mansion travel trailer I suggest one of the Go Power kits that include an inverter/regulator/charger, transfer switch and 25-foot cables. We have three such products with varying power output ratings. The Weekender kit # 34282551 has one panel and is rated for 170 watts. The Elite kit # 34282550 has two panels and is rated for 340 watts. The Extreme kit # 34282552 has three panels and is rated for 510 watts. For...

  • Will the Go Power Solar Controller # 34276119 Work as a Replacement for GP-PWM-30 Controller
  • You are correct that the GP-PWM-30 controller has been discontinued. The Go Power Flush Mount PWM Digital Solar Controller # 34276119 is compatible as a replacement. This controller is just a little more heavy duty than the older version. If has the exact same dimensions as the GP-PWM-30 and will work with the six 6V batteries that you are using. This controller is also compatible with 2 battery banks. If your battery banks were set up by a professional then I would leave them as they...

  • Charging Deep Cycle Battery and Breakaway Battery on Trailer with Solar Panel
  • When hooking up both your deep cycle 12V battery and breakaway battery to a solar panel controller you shouldn't need to add a resistor in line between the two batteries. When using a controller that features dual battery profiles like the Go Power # 34276119 there won't be any concern with the breakaway battery draining. A 100 watt panel like the Overlander Charging Kit # 34272635, which includes the above-mentioned controller, should be sufficient to keep both batteries charged according...

  • Recommended Power Inverter for Deep Cycle Battery on Horse Trailer
  • Your fantastic fan will run off 12V power, so it draw power directly from your deep cycle battery and does not need an inverter. If your water pump requires 110V power instead of 12V, then you can use the Go Power Heavy-Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter - 12V - 800 Watts # 34280175 for that water pump and probably some other electrical needs at the same time. You can use the alligator clips on your battery or you can use the Bulldog Winch Power Lead Extension for ATV/UTV Winches - 6 Gauge...

  • Troubleshooting Low Power from Shore to Transfer Switch
  • It sounds like you have a short in your Power Cord wiring as there isn't anything between the power cord and the Go Power Transfer Switch # 34270278 as they are directly wired. I've attached a video of the Go Power Transfer Switch - Quick Connect - 30 Amp # 342GPTS which shows these connections. If you don't use and in-line circuit breaker like # CAM55306 then there has to be an issue with the wiring or the ground on the transfer switch itself.

  • Is Fuse Needed to Connect Go Power Inverter to Battery
  • The Installation Kit for Go Power 12V or 24V Inverters # 342GPDCKIT2 has a T-fuse that is needed because it serves as protection for the connection made between the battery and 12V Inverters # 34280176 and # 34279948 as well as 24V Inverter # 34279951. This fuse is needed as a way to protect the inverter from direct overcurrent protection. I have added a link to a video review of this kit as well as aforementioned the Go Power Inverters.

  • 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.

  • How Does Go Power Extreme Solar kit part # 34282552 Connect to Different Battery Banks
  • 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.

  • 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...

  • The solar panel in the Go Power Portable Solar Kit # 34268171 is designed to withstand the elements while it is in outdoor use on your RV. The panel itself has a 25-year warranty. The digital controller that is attached to the rear of the panel assembly is shown in the linked photo and video. This part is not waterproof. Since this system is portable, not permanently mounted, it is easy enough to get it out of harm's way. I asked my technical contact at Go Power about leaving this unit...

  • Troubleshooting Interior Lights Not Working When 30 Amp Power Connected to Trailer
  • I believe I know exactly what happened. The overhead lights in most trailers are connected to 12V power from your trailer battery versus the shore power that all the other fixtures run off. I recommend checking your trailer battery for power using a multimeter like # ALL648349 with the red probe on the positive terminal and the black probe on the negative terminal. A properly charged battery should show around 12.6 volts. If your battery is good, then check your power at the switch,...

  • 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.

  • Can Go Power Portable Solar Kit # 34268172 be Exposed to Rain
  • Solar panels are intended to be used outside where there is rain which means the Go Power Portable Solar Kit # 34268172 wouldn't fail if it was exposed to rain. That said, since this is a portable kit not designed for permanent mounting and since rain doesn't typically mean there's sunshine you'd most likely want to take this down in the event of rain.
