Mounted solar panels are ideal for fitting onto the roof of your RV, camper trailer, caravan or boat. Aussie Batteries range of mounted solar panels includes 12V solar panels in a wide variety of sizes and wattages. Our mounted solar panels are custom designed and manufactured using A-grade solar cells sourced from major brands such as Bosch (German made), Kyocera (Japanese made), and Sharp Solar. All of our panels are constructed with heavy duty hail proof glass, anodised aluminium frames (guaranteed not to rust) and come with a 25-year performance warranty as standard.
Most modern caravans or motor homes come pre-installed with a 12 volt or 24 volt battery system. These systems are generally charged by the vehicle's alternator while the engine is running and often utilise a 230-volt battery charger to maintain the battery when connected to the grid. However, in a remote location (like most National Parks) 230V is generally not available so you will need an alternative power supply. Often running a generator or the engine is the only way to re-charge the batteries which of course destroys the desired benefit of camping remotely. Mounted Solar panels are a brilliant way to keep your batteries charged while enjoying the serenity of nature. Solar set-ups are quiet, they don't smell and can last for 20 years or more, require hardly any maintenance and in this day and age are very affordable.Aussie Batteries sell both 12 volt and 24 volt (nominal) solar panels to match your RV's battery voltage. Our panels come in various shapes and sizes to suit most vehicles, camper trailers and motorhomes.
