[Motorhome 24v Lithium Solar Upgrade]      [5th Wheel 12v AGM full Solar Install]

Welcome to the Pau Hana Travels Solar Guide. We have put this Solar Guide together for those of you who have watched our Solar Videos on our RVing to Alaska YouTube Channel and have questions about the configurations of our setup on a 2016 Fleetwood Discovery Class A motorhome.  To view Gary’s Dad’s setup which was installed in April of 2018 click here.  That install was completed on his 2014 Coachman Brookstone 5th Wheel.  We have included videos of the installs, wiring diagrams, and parts lists for each build.
