What kind of solar/electrical system do you need in your camper van? Some tips below!


If you get stuck or have questions, our team is here to help! Email us a or call us at 754-444-8704 extension 2.

Step 1: Figure out your needs with a load calculation. We have a detailed blog post including sample load calculations you can use for this step. This exercise will really help you with the next two steps!

Step 2: Make a foundational decision on the type of system you'll be building. We've narrowed this down to three basic approaches/architectures - all of which use lithium-type batteries, and each one has a detailed blog post, free example wiring diagram, and, for the Victron-based systems, a corresponding kit/bundle of products that you can configure to your specific needs. You'll save a bundle with our bundles! You can think of this as the primary components and the products in the bundle are specific to the architecture/system design you've chosen.

Step 3: Add on the "accessories" that you need for your particular system with our best price accessories bundle that includes everything from shore power inlets to circuit protection and wiring, and our solar components bundle that includes everything from mounting brackets to solar extension cables and charge controllers. These are the products that will tie everything together into a fully functional power system but are not specific to a particular example wiring diagram/architecture.

Example: in this blog post, where we compare a "traditional" Victron-based system to an EcoFlow Power Kit, we have some video screen captures from our store product pages showing how we configured our internal BMS bundle and our accessory bundle to get a close comparison. These screen capture videos are helpful to see how versatile our bundles are and how you might configure them.


Power System Accessories Bundle


Our discounted power system accessories bundle has tons of options for all of the products you need to wire up your electrical system that are not specific to a particular electrical system/bundle. In other words, these are the types of circuit protection, wiring, and other components that are somewhat universal to most mobile power systems. Only the best, road-tested components are offered here. We recommend pairing this accessory bundle with one of our power system product bundles – each of which includes a detailed blog post and a free example camper van wiring diagram that we recommend you use as a guide to what accessories you need.

All of these products are for sale individually in our store.

Note: we purchase many of the Blue Sea Systems products in bulk with minimal packaging since we must repackage into boxes to ship to you. This allow us to supply our customers with the highest quality products with the least impact on the environment and packaging waste.
