How to solve the power problem of RV

More and more people are beginning to enjoy outdoor life. Many outdoor enthusiasts have begun to consider purchasing a motorhome. However, the problem of electricity consumption in the RV also makes many people give up this idea. Today, we will discuss and solve this problem together!

 How to use electricity in RV

As we all know, self-propelled RVs rely on their own generators to generate electricity, but the generators will stop working after the car is turned off, and there is no generator when the RV is towed, so how to solve the power problem of RVs is very difficult. Important, so what are the ways to use electricity in a RV?


  1. Install large-capacity lithium battery

Adding a large-capacity lithium battery is one of the methods. You can ask the manufacturer or install it in the storage room in the car when you buy it. This can ensure our normal power consumption, but this method still cannot solve the problem from the root cause. To solve the problem of electricity consumption, no matter how large a capacity battery is installed, the electricity will always run out, and you still need to find a place to charge it, which is still a problem in the wild! It is good to use this method for short trips nearby.


  1. Install a small silent gasoline generator

The method of installing a silent generator is really good. A small silent generator can satisfy all the facilities in the RV for 4 to 5 hours, but you need to pay 4 liters of gasoline to help the generator generate electricity, and this method is also Not very environmentally friendly.


       3. Install portable solar panels on the top of the RV

Worried that the battery is dead and the oil used by the generator is not environmentally friendly, it is recommended to place several large-wattage portable solar panels in the storage room. Install the solar panel on the roof of the car, as long as there is sun, you can charge your battery at any time, and all the electrical facilities in your car can be powered at any time, and solar energy only needs the sun as energy, no gasoline! Of course, the above two methods can also be used as alternatives, which can come in handy when there is no sun.


We must understand this most environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to generate electricity - portable solar power on the RV. The most extravagant gift of nature - the sun! It is also the cleanest and environmentally friendly new energy we are pursuing. Now, solar panels are one of the most beloved emergency equipment for caravan enthusiasts. Traveling in a caravan can meet the power consumption problem anytime and anywhere. Solar energy has given us a lot of help!


  • RV appliance power and power consumption per day
  • First of all, we need to know the power of the household appliances commonly used in RVs, and how much power they consume in a day
  • A 21-inch TV, with a power of about 50 watts, is expected to be used for 10 hours a day, and the cumulative power consumption is 500 watts, about 0.5 kWh!
  • The 90-liter refrigerator is used all day, and the cumulative power consumption will not exceed 0.5 degrees. (It is generally recommended to use an intermittent stopper, so that the start-up time of the refrigerator can be controlled, and it will not exceed 0.2 degrees a day)
  • For a 100-watt notebook (generally 60 watts), it is expected to be used for 5 hours a day, and the cumulative power consumption is 500 watts, which is about 0.5 kWh.
  • An 800-watt rice cooker is expected to be used twice a day for a total of half an hour, and the cumulative power consumption is 400 watts, which is about 0.4 kilowatt-hours.
  • The 900-watt electric pressure cooker is expected to be used twice a day for a total of half an hour, and the cumulative power consumption is 450 watts, which is about 0.45 kilowatt-hours. 6. An 800-watt electric thermos, with a volume of 4 liters, is expected to be used 3 times a day, each time for 5 minutes, and the cumulative power consumption is 200 watts, about 0.2 kilowatt-hours.
  • For a 10-watt LED lamp, calculated as 3 lamps, it can be used for 5 hours a day. The cumulative power consumption is 150 watts, about 0.15 degrees.
  • A 500-watt resistance wire electric furnace (induction cooker is not recommended, high power and power consumption), is expected to be used twice a day, each time for 20 minutes, the cumulative power consumption is 350 watts, about 0.35 degrees.
  • Calculated according to the common air conditioner, it is about 1000 watts for an hour, so if it is turned on for 5 hours, it will consume 5 kWh of electricity.


Of course, these are only a part of RV electrical appliances. There are still many places
