When you are camped at a location that doesn’t have electricity and the batteries run down, then what? You could buy a generator to recharge, but then you have to worry about carrying fuel for it and limitations on when you can run in some campgrounds. You could also have solar panels installed on your roof. If you are nervous about poking extra holes in your roof and adding weight and wind resistance to your RV, then this might not be the best solution.
I opted to pickup a 100 watt solar suitcase from Renogy. I can
keep this stowed away and only bring it out when I need it. I’ve used it a few times now and with a good sunny day, I can fully charge my batteries in about 5 hours. Of course there could be an extended cloudy period that could leave your batteries drained, but that hasn’t happened to me yet.
