WOW! $1,875 !!!!!
I was not aware of the Kodiak solar generator
so I looked it up. Its list price is $1999, "on sale" for $1,875. Its basically just a very expensive LiOn battery
and inverter. Solar
panels are extra. It supplies 90 amp hours (12 volts), about as much power as the single group 27 battery
that comes with Scamp
and other trailers. You can use most of that 90 however, as opposed to 45 with a lead acid battery. You could get more usable power out of two golf-cart batteries if you needed it.
This is sure not the way I would power the roof fan, or most anything else. Just use the house battery (or batteries) on the RV, and get a solar charger and panels for $150-$300. If you really need 120 VAC in addition to 12 VDC then get an inverter.. but the roof fans use 12 volts.
