Portable Solar Panel Options for Wildwood X-Lite by Forest River  


Just purchased a 2019 201bhxl Wildwood by Forest River with a pre-wired Furrion solar port and wanted to know what my options for portable solar were? It is equipped with an Everchill 10.7 cu ft refrigerator that only operates on Battery... Claims you can boondock between battery and solar... not sure what the solar capacity for this camper is.

The 2.5-Watt Solar Battery Charger # PTW2997 is a great option for your solar charging needs on the go, or for a much larger panel we have the 100 watt part # 287-32408. This product will not completely supply the needs of your Furrion camera system all the time but can be used along with a battery to charge the battery so the battery can power the unit. I recommend the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 25 Amp # 331-BCDC1225D which will allow you to have power from a solar panel amplified and will amplify the trailer battery charge while towing as well. This will give priority to the solar energy to charge your batteries for use on whatever you desire to connect to that 12V power. I've attached a couple videos to assist. This system will work with any solar panels like the hiking pack you mentioned or the larger panels like # 287-32408 as well.

I also attached a link to all of the panels we offer that would work.
