Wind charger bundle for the power-hungry caravans.
This wind charger bundle is based on the large Rutland 1200 wind turbine. The turbine provides enough power for the large and demanding caravan.
It is a powerful wind charger that produces a lot of power for a refrigerator, TV, laptop, coffee machine, etc. With this bundle, maybe with some solar cells also, you can probably live in your caravan all year round, without suffering from lack of power. Of course, there are limits (electric heating in winter …. not a good idea 🙂 )
The charge controller is included in the wind charger package and can be extended with a remote meter for installation anywhere in the caravan.
The distance from the battery to the charge controller must not exceed 1.5 meter cable, a Remote meter is therefore often a good idea. The charge controller can handle 2 battery banks. That way you can make sure that there is always power to the motor home’s start battery and you can use deep cycle batteries for your battery consumption, that will be charged after the start battery.
Since it’s very different how the installation of a caravan is done, you may opt for a tube (1200mm) that is prepared for installation of the wind turbine at one end, but you must install it on the caravan yourself.
The alternative is the free-standing mast of 6.4 meters that will really get your wind charger up in a good altitudes. If it is a year-round installation, we strongly recommend that you mold 5 point foundations in concrete, but in the 3 month summer setup, it will often be enough with strong lashings of mast and rigging. Make it solid!
Remember to purchase rigging, when ordering mast.
You can add solar panels to this wind charger and can connect up to 200 Watt solar at 12 Volt (400 Watt at 24 Volt), without having to buy additional charge controller.
