Solar for Dummies

I know less than zero about the solar system on my 2021 Montana. Is there a site I can go to in order to learn the basics of operation? The dealer was pretty vague and covered it fast. Thanks.

There are at least 6 documents in the MOC Files Sectiona about the Super Solar System. Here is a link to them.

Car Guy,

It would be helpful to know which solar package you have.
Different packages have different items.

Keystone has a Owners How-To site.
https://www.keystonerv.com/owners-how-to

There is an app for your phone that has very helpful links and information.
go here on your phone: https://www.keystonerv.com/mykeystone

last but not least there is a FB page for Montana Fifth Wheel Factory Solar.

I'm going solar - woo hoo

Ok, there music in my head when I wrote the title. I know more than zero about solar. It requires the sun. That's about it. I will check out the files that were recommended, but the words, 'Super Solar System' screams DIY at me, which in most cases I love, but not with this. I found complete kits on Amazon for different Watts and Amps. For my 2019 381TH I need 50a.



I'm not sure why I'm posting. I came to the section, and then this thread because I also need help. However, I don't think I have questions yet. I don't know enough to have questions. So, skip this post. Sorry for wasting your time.


To those who come before me..

A good place to start, watch Will Prowse YouTube channel. He has tutorials that will take you through it all step by step from basics to advanced systems.

Another good site that has enough bite size information to make your heads swim is explorist.life. Between will Prowse YouTube channel and explorist.life you will definitely find enough basics to begin asking good questions. Good luck on your endeavors and happy camping
