Keystone RV created a new OE solar package as an optional power solution exclusively for Keystone Montana fifth wheels. The manufacturer deemed its new Super SolarFlex system “the first high-performance solar-powered system available as original equipment from a major RV manufacturer.”

The Keystone Innovation Lab collaborated with Future Solutions, Dragonfly Energy and Airxcel to design, engineer and optimize Super SolarFlex. The turnkey system has a full warranty, is a UL listed component and installation is compliant with RVIA standards.

Keystone RV’s new solar offering is an OE solution to a growing aftermarket trend, Montana Product Manager Sam Lengerich said.

“As we watch camping and campers evolve, there is an increasing desire for off-grid camping,” Lengerich said. “Montana owners’ forums are filled with questions about installing aftermarket solar power systems, with some great experiences and, sometimes, a good deal of frustration.”

Keystone Innovation Lab engineer Jon Brock was tasked to build a “dream team” to deliver a solution to rival the most advanced aftermarket options, with the assurance of factory installation and warranty.

Mechanical components of a Keystone RV 2020 Montana Super SolarFlex“We brought together the best in the business and spent months working through each detail—from componentry and layout, to production-friendly installation,” Brock said. “We added features for easy operation, monitoring and protection to provide owners with complete control and peace of mind. I think Super SolarFlex will be a welcome surprise for customers who are excited about the advantages of solar power and want the assured performance of an end-to-end engineered solution.”

Super SolarFlex features four roof-mounted solar panels, with a combined 1,000-plus watts of solar collection. It has 510 amp hours of lithium ion battery storage, a 3,000-watt magnum hybrid inverter/charger and power saver air conditioner with integrated soft start. The system is connected to every outlet, appliance and RV system.

Keystone RV partnered with Drivin’ and Vibin’s Kyle Brady to debut the product. Details on his experience with Super SolarFlex can be seen here.
