Escapees Magazine Feature Article: RV Solar Power

The May/June 2015 issue of Escapees Magazine is featuring our article on the basics of RV solar power.

Installing a solar power system is an awesome upgrade for any RV, whether you are using it for weekend and vacation travel or are living in it full-time as we do. Yet there is a mystique about solar power that sometimes makes it seem like a much bigger deal than it really is.

In this article I wanted to make the whole theory behind getting electrical power into an RV without electrical hookups as straight forward and easy to understand as possible.

It just isn’t as complicated as it seems!

So, if you aren’t a techie, I hope this article gives you some visuals and explanations that make sense!

The editors at Escapees Magazine have kindly allowed me share the article with you here:

A future article will go into the details of selecting components and installing them. In the meantime, we have lots of pages on this website dedicated to solar power if you wish to learn more. Links for all the solar power pages on this site can all be found here:

As for the magazine this article is appearing in, it is the club magazine for Escapees RV Club, an incredibly diverse club that caters to the widely varying needs of all RVers — whether young, old, rich, poor, single, family, traveling or parked!

Two months ago we stayed at their huge headquarters campus in Livingston, Texas. If you aren’t familiar with the club, the following link is a fun way to learn about some of the unusual ways that Escapees takes care of us all in our lives on the road:
