Three 60 watt solar panels joined together with aluminium angle are
fitted to the Jeep roof racks.
Quick release catches and padlocks mounted on
four butt hinges allow tilting of the panel either way or complete
removal from the vehicle.
A GSL MPPT regulator with cooling fan, fuse and
off-switch are mounted inside the wagon and are directly connected
to the Anderson plug wiring to charge the Jeepís Optima battery and
the trailer battery when it is connected
A Wattmeter supplied by Mandrakes Solar and
fitted with Anderson plugs is used to monitor solar input and
battery drain. The system easily supplies 40 amp hours or more per
day when the summer sun shines and about 12 amp hours when overcast.
