  • Solar Solution for Imagine XLS 17mke

    My wife and I are new owners of a 2021 Grand Design Imagine XLS 17mke. What would be the best solar panel solution for this size trailer. It comes solar ready, wired for panels on the roof. Any and all information would be helpful. We have no experience with solar panels. Thank you!

    Welcome! When you get a chance, please read the Welcome Letter to New Members as it contains (hopefully) helpful information about this forum.

    Your question is not an easy one to answer. It's like asking, "What's the best car?" The answer, of course, is "it depends".

    For starters, check out TucsonJim 's Solar 101 presentation (he gives this at Grand Design rallies). The thread is here: https://gdrvowners.com/forum/solar/r...4-solar-101-v4

    Then I suggest getting a copy of Will Prowse's book to truly understand everything related to this topic. Well worth the $15 and time to read. More info here: https://gdrvowners.com/forum/solar/r...olar-resources

    There's a smattering of info in the Solar channel's Reference Material section, too: https://gdrvowners.com/forum/solar/r...ce-material-aa

        I am buying a 17MKE also and am looking into adding solar. I had a 400 watt system on my r-Pod but I'm moving to a full size trailer now. Be happy to bounce ideas off each other.
