Battery Power 2021 View stock setup

Buying a 2021View 24V, with the stock setup of 2000w PSW, 2x100 solar panels, 2 group 31 batteries.

I know I am not going to have capability I had with my Class B and 3x100 solar and 400ah lithium (pretty sure I will be addressing that quickly).

We like to boondock a good portion of the time. Would like to see what we can do initially with the stock setup. Dealer says "no problem", HA! We're frugal users of 12v/110, but need to power 12v fridge and heater cold nights 30s/40s.

Expect to replace the flexible solar panels, switch to at least 400ah lithium and at least 4x100 solar, probably some different electronics.

Anyone have a similar setup and able to share your experience with how adequate the group 31s are? Will we be able to get by the night without 110 and not killing the batteries?

Thanks!

Rick

Welcome aboard.

We have the 2021 24V. stock wise the 200AH battery with the 2 x 100 watt solar panels will get you 2-3 days of refrigeration and general 12V lighting, providing you get some sunshine. I have replaced one of the Zamp stock 100 watt panels and added 2 x 200 watt panels. Since doing this with the stock AGM batteries we have no problem running 5-7 days without starting the gen. That is along as we get 6+ hours of sunshine a day. I plan to change to Lithium batteries but can't see tossing the AGM while they are still good.
Oh and that 100 Watt Zamp panel that I removed comes in handy in the winter months when the unit is covered. Its placed on top of the cover and plugged in the solar receptacle inside the driver side rear bay. The 100 watt panels maintains the engine and house batteries just fine.
Be aware that if you have the Zamp solar system the power cords are A## backwards wiring. You can easily get adapter at Amazon.
Oh and those cold nights, we had several 26degree nights last spring in CO. We found it easier to go with heavy winter sleeping bags and drop the heat down to 50 inside at night. Don't have to listen to the heat running all night. And the with the sun coming up we can quickly replace any power used by the heater.


Feel free to ask questions, This is a great bunch with lots of knowledge.

I have a 230 watt panel paired to a 30 amp controller into a 200 amp hour lithium battery. This way I can add more panels to the system in the future. New basically to solar.
