    I have been on this forum for quite a while now trying to gain knowledge on putting a system on my conversion, and at no point felt like it was frowned on. JUst some honest opinions and facts about the true cost, complexity, risk, reward. What I have learned here has been super valuable and rewarding. I dont get the bitter attitude toward the forum.

    I think most rvers struggle with solar fulfilling there needs, mainly due to the want for airconditioning

      Successful solar on an RV, I think, requires a DIY spirit, hands on maintenance approach and a full understanding of its capabilities and limitations. I would think a bought and installed system from a dealership or Larry with a Ladder has a very slim chance of meeting the buyers needs and would be destined for a short life followed by a poor attitude about solar..

        And that's EXACTLY what I'm wanting to [B]not [/B]have happen here. I see this as a forum of "realistic expectations" advising folks how to engineer a system that will work for them. I want this forum to have real answers to questions, and not be greenwashing, pie in sky, join the solar revolution comrade. I want people to be as happy with their solar as I am with mine, knowing that there are limits.
