Why a wind charger on a caravan?
Wind Charger on a Caravan or a motorhome, is the most for those who can not “settle” with camping only in the summer high season and would like to have spring, autumn and even winter as a possibility.

Charging controller for the wind charger is ready to accept solar panels too, so it is only the solar cells to be procured extra for a combined installation.
