Nice system but my system only to keep up batteries when we dry camp
Only ac appliance need to run is air, everything else 12v, and if we camp where air needed we will go to full hook up park.

TV is 12 volt. I have a Coleman drip coffee pot which uses the propane stove for its heat source. When I have hook ups, use keurig. My goal was to be able to use all the lights I want and watch a little Telly at night , but have it fully recharged by the next night. I also run a fantastic fan during day. 200 watts seems ok so far, but have room for at least 3 more if needed.
My DVD player 12 volt too. The panels are flexible and conform to angle of the roof.

When I originally started my solar project, it was just to keep the batteries topped off. Then the thought of being able to watch TV [3 units] and use the microwave came into play. Things just got out of hand after that. A 1,000 watt inverter would have been enough to run TV and BlueRay, but not enough for the microwave/convection oven, thus the 5,000 watt inverter.
Sure had fun putting it all together!
It wouldn't be that expensive to offer a 200watt solar system [$500]with new RVs, but I doubt you will see it soon. It may already be out there, just not aware of it.
