Xponent’s smart solar RV awning gives camper charging a raise

December 9, 2021

An RV roof seems the perfect place to secure solar panels for onboard battery charging, right up until you try to squeeze them between and around the vents, skylights, air conditioner, antennas, racks and other roof-mounted components. California company Xponent Power looks to an alternative solution to provide more sunlight-capturing capability. Its auto-retracting Xpanse Solar Awning deploys at the push of a button and works like a large, on-demand solar panel, shading a big piece of ground next to the RV with up to 1,200 watts of charging power.
