Installing and Wiring Solar Panels on Our Bus Conversion

In this video we wire up 6 400 watt solar panels on our skoolie’bus conversion which we wired 2 in series, and 3 in parallel to create a 2400 watt bank of panels. Full disclosure after filming this video we actually added 2 more panels, bringing the total to 8 panels and 3200 watts.

Here is the solar combiner box:
The contents of your solar combiner box will be dependent on your solar panel set up. A great place to buy this is from and you can call them for help too.
Solar Panel Cables: (figure out how many 10 foot, 20 foot, or 30 foot sets you need before buying)
