Simply Unbeatable | More Power in Less Space

Does your RV or camper say that it's "pre-wired for solar"?  It's very likely that means the manufacturer has run some wiring and ended at what is called an SAE connector.  Most solar panels don't have SAE connectors, they use MC4 connectors so you will need an MC4 to SAE connector cable.


Note: Please be sure to double check that you have the positive and negative the correct way around, it is often the case that you will need to make use of the reverse polarity adapter (included) to ensure the correct positve and negative wire run all the way from the solar panel to the SAE connector.



MC4 to SAE connector

    • 10AWG wire
    • Rated Voltage 600V
    • Rated current 35A
    •  Approx 13" length
    •  Comes with reverse polarity adaptor - please ensure that the positive and negative from the panel match with the connectors as often the MC4 connectors in particular will be reversed.


SunPower 170W E-flex solar panels

So now I generally

don't bother hooking

up to shore power!

Thanks for all the help in planning my solar project for my boat. The two 170W flexible panels fit well on my Bimini and now I generally don't bother hooking up to shore power.  Although I haven’t had any long trips since my installation I have done a few day trips. And even with fridge, radio, plotters, autopilot and occasional radar it seems that these panels are keeping up with my usage. I did add some stiffener material to the back of the panels and attached the panels with zippers and they have survived a few 30 knot days and one night with winds gusting well over 55 knots. No damage at all and no signs of flexing problems. 

The advice and service has been great.  Thanks again.

high efficiency flexible solar panels

It made my project

work, thank you

Lyall and Katie are so knowledgeable.  I tried this project with a lesser quality panel and the project failed because it wasn't efficient enough. The SunPower® Maxeon Gen III cells are compact and simply kick out more Volts/Current than all the others on the market today.   And by using the SunPower® panel, everything was smooth and efficient.  I love my new 170W 29V 5.83A panel!!  It made my project work.   Thanks Lyall for all your knowledge in making this work.
