The 275 Watt RV Solar kit is Powerful, Reliable and Dependable. Easy to install with only one panel to mount and connect on an RV or Off Grid 12v-24v systems. This kit utilizes "oversizing" by using a higher voltage panel (you can size Morningstar’s MPPT controllers well above the Maximum Nominal Solar PV Input rating without damaging the controller and without the charging current exceeding the maximum output current rating.
Energy harvesting during lower power production periods (cloudy weather) is often more valued than during times when the array can operate at full power (sunny weather). The controller can limit current and will run at 100% of rated output. It runs the controller at maximum levels more consistently
The controller was designed with this power-shaving capability and when oversized it does not void the warranty.
275 WATT Single Panel RV SOLAR KIT Can be expanded by simply connecting more panels
(It can handle up to 4 x 175W panels in series/parallel for 1100 Watts total. Power shaving at 1100 watts, No risk of damage to controller in this configuration)
Morningstar Prostar 40A MPPT 12v-24v charge controller with digital meter
The 275 Watt kit's state of the art MPPT charge controller out performs all other comparable controllers. MPPT TrakStar can add 10-30% Gain in charging early, late (low light conditions) and especially in colder weather

25 Ft 8ga MC4 Male to Charge Controller Positive Lead cable
25 Ft 8ga MC4 Female to Charge Controller Positive Lead cable
(ships 50' cable pos/neg to be cut in 1/2)
kit does not include the 2 battery cables that go from controller to battery posts. Keep them short with controller mounted as close to battery bank as possible.
12v Inline fuses and breakers are very inexpensive and easy to find locally at auto parts or car stereo stores
If you add fuses to and from controller on this kit you'd use 15a on pos solar and 15a on pos battery
