2018 Airstream 23CB
For this 2018 Airstream 23CB travel trailer, we installed a Victron SmartSolar MPPT 100|30 (30A) Charge Controller, three of the ZS90 (90w) Zamp Long Solar Panels (w/ doubled up mounting feet) and a Victron BMV-712 Battery Monitor. We covered all exposed wiring with split loom tubing and sealed all roof penetrations using Sikaflex adhesive/sealant and Dicor self-leveling sealant. To compliment the new solar, we installed a Victron Multiplus 12/3000/120-50 120V VE.Bus Inverter/Charger, Victron Color Screen control kit, Progressive Industries EMS (Electrical Management System) and a new 30A main panel. We installed the Victron Cyrix-ct-li combiner/separator on the trailer charge and portable Zamp solar connection circuit and connected into AMS module to allow charging from the additional power sources. We also installed a MicroAir Easy Start soft starter within Air Conditioner to ease the starts on a smaller inverter-type generator when used.
To power the coach when boondocking, we installed the Victron V4.2 Lithium Base Kit w/ two 200Ah Lithium Expansion kits (total battery storage 400ah) and installed an EFOY Comfort 210 Fuel Cell w/ remote. We oriented the fuel cell equipment in such a way allowing easy access for swapping out the fuel tank when it runs low. The OE sofa and cabinetry was modified to accommodate the new equipment installation.
This customer can now get the full experience while boondocking with his brand new Airstream.
