This is a good book we have had a few people walk into our shop with this book looking for parts for their project each of them have used this guide to help them prepare their thoughts and plan the system that they wanted i had spoke with a few of them prior to them getting this book and they are far better informed after reading it

Finally an easy approach to mobile solar design and installation: -Add a solar system to your RV, Van, Trailer, Car or Boat -Step-by-step instructions that anyone can follow -Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced methods for calculating your solar system. You choose! -Tips and tricks that will save you time and money -You can read this book from start to finish, or use it as a reference -Large, easy to understand pictures And much more!

  1. Eddie J Beam

    At first glance one might think this book is simplistic because it is so easy to read. In that regard, it beats the dickens out of those basic “for Dummies” books. I think it’s because the author is able to say what he means in a very few words, yet they are still enough to say ALL he intends, and that is a rare talent indeed! I’m not a beginner when it comes to general electrical things, but my wife is a total novice, and SHE loves this book!

    This book explains and demystifies solar like no other. After watching several of this young mans You Tube videos I decided to buy his book to explore options for solar on my RV. The explanations, diagrams, and system layouts are extremely easy to follow along.

    I think if you own an RV you should know how every system works and be able to diagnose problems, and this book gave me that knowledge. I feel that I can now intelligently decide on the right components to add solar to fit my needs and save a lot of money picking my own parts rather than paying a premium to get a pre-packaged solution, not to mention I have the confidence to install it myself.

    This book was a simple, down to earth, and easy to follow guide to install a complete solar and lithium battery system in our RV. I have been watching Will’s videos on YouTube for a long time, and am so glad I went ahead and made this purchase. It’s cliche, but it really was worth every penny.

    What a great book and tell there was much work that went into writing the book. He broke it down to laymen terms, super easy to understand, with lots of information. I’ll keep this book close by for a reference when needed. I think this is a must have for everyone and anyone who is starting their system.

  6. Thomas D Rodriguez

    Will’s book delivers as promised. A no nonsense easy to follow tutorial on all things mobile solar and solar in general.
    Makes it easy to understand what your needs are and plan out your own solar system. Just enough hardware recommendations to help and not over load.

  7. David W Helm

    Best book written for all the ideas and planning you need to go solar. I would also recommend “Managing 12 Volts” by Harold Barre, which may be more detailed but this book is really all you need !

  8. Jerry B Studley

    I read the book, watched Will’s YouTube videos, learned from his website, and now I’m generating solar power via a whole DIY system !

  10. Leonard L Norwood

    Really clear & great reference. Understandable to someone who hasn’t has any experience with solar. We are building this month. His You-Tube videos are also super helpful. And also I get the book for free !

  11. Normand P Garrison

    I’ll have Will to thank. Will put the cookies on the lowest shelf. He makes solar generated electricity understandable to those of us that are not versed in the technical gargin so many other people get mired in. I have added solar to my RV by following his instruction’s !

  12. William M Pedigo

    I am in the process of building a Skoolie and this book is proving to be an awesome resource. It is the only book I have found that has all the information I need to plan and build my solar electrical system, explained in down to earth language. It’s like having a friend who knows solar explaining the basics and beyond. Really he had done a great job !

    William M Pedigo

  13. Jorge Y Marcotte

    I find myself still referring to it for reference. Will’s books, as well as his YouTube content, explains and details solar power solutions for mobile applications. Whether you’re traveling, camping, or want to learn about solar systems, this book is a great foundation and reference tool!

  14. Aaron J Taylor

    It filled in some of my knowledge gaps. This book is well written and very comprehensible for newbies as well as those of us with a good knowledge of solar systems.

  15. William D Ayala

    When I found his book, I snatched it. I received it yesterday, and I have read it once so far, and I will be using it as my general reference to install my 800 watt system, very soon. Now I am not dumb, but I am Irish, and that slows me down in some endeavors, electricity being the main one. This book had me wired into the system in no time. I got it now. Parallel and series, no problem. This book lays it out in the most basic terms, with illustrations, to help even my Irish brain grasp it with no problem. Thank you so much !

  17. Nathan K Buchholz

    This is a great resource for building a mobile solar system. The information on design and wire gauge alone is well worth the cost. I’m a retired Physics and chemistry teacher and this book helped me select components for a safe system. Excellent !

    It was quite the pleasurable read. Easily finished in a day, lazily reading from time to time. Very informative of how a solar system works and written in a thoughtful manner that the complete novice can understand. I plan on creating my own solar system based on William Prowse’s information! Thank you for making this book !
