Blender (average 0.15 day) 12
Toaster (average 0.15 day) 60
Vacuum (average 0.15 day) 35
Curling Iron (average 0.15 day) 3
Blow Dryer (average 0.15 day) 125
Total amp hours per day


Step 2
– Calculate your total weekly amps

Multiply total amps hours per day by the number of days per week (i.e. weekend camping: multiply
total amp hours x 2 days, full-time camping: multiply total amps per day x 7 days).
_____________ amps per x ______________# of days of use per week = ________________ total amps


Step 3 – Find the perfect solar panels for your RV
