Crazy Electrical System Idea.
I am in the planning stage of my skoolie project and hope to buy the bus in the next few months. My mind is constantly working through every part of the build and I had a thought on the electrical system that I wanted to get some group input on.
So here is my hypothetical build:
-Solar panels on the roof charging a large bank of batteries.
-Batteries powering an inverter to run all AC systems.
-Largest alternator I can find on the coach engine to charge batteries when driving.
-Small generator used to charge the battery bank as a backup.
The advantages that I see is the reduction in initial generator cost, less fuel, much less noise.
The biggest question that I have is how would I ever size this system?
Has anyone done a system like this? Any input would be helpful.
