When you're out on the road in an RV, one of the worst things that could happen would be draining your deep cycle RV battery. While there are many options for charging an RV battery, having a solar charging setup can be an interesting portable choice for long trips or even for charging deep cycle batteries at home.
How Solar Charging Works
Solar energy requires the collection of power from the sun through the use of photovoltaic cells. In order to harness the power for a deep cycle battery charger, a solar panel must be connected to the battery via a charger controller. This allows the correct amount of power to be transferred to the battery to maximizing its charge without damaging its capacity in the long term.
