The LG ThinQ, a 6000 BTU air conditioner, is an absolute necessity.

The 1200-Watt Ampeak Inverter not only powers all your devices but also helps you manage your power consumption, preventing you from buying high-wattage appliances. This is crucial as it allows you to keep your energy usage in check. Additionally, most appliances have low-wattage alternatives available.
You'll also need around 280 to 400 ampere-hours (Ah) of batteries to ensure your system can operate during cloudy periods.
The PowerSmart Portable Inverter Generator, with its 1000-Watt capacity (1500-Watt peak), provides sufficient power to recharge your batteries and keep your air conditioner running during those cloudy days.
For recharging your batteries on cloudy days, the Victron Energy Blue Smart IP22 battery charger is indispensable. It's worth noting that most built-in RV chargers supply about 50 amps for your devices but only 4 to 8 amps for battery charging. This is why the Victron charger is recommended.

You should strongly consider Eco-Worthy or Renogy solar panels due to their excellent efficiency when installed on your roof. These panels are designed with tempered glass, which is elevated about an inch above the roof, creating airflow beneath them. This design helps in cooling the panels and maximizing their power output. It's essential to note that excessively hot panels produce significantly less electricity.

Additionally, these kits are cost-effective since they include all the necessary mounting hardware and wiring. However, it's advisable to discard the included PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) controller, as it may not be of the best quality. You'll want to aim for a total of 500 watts of solar panels on your roof to meet your energy needs.

You also need a Renogy 40a MPPT Charge Controller to convert that solar power into battery power.

Lastly, take a look at my list of energy-efficient appliances and devices. I've researched thousands of reviews to identify the best low-wattage options. Finding an 800-Watt Keurig coffee maker, for instance, was a challenging but rewarding task.
