Jayco® has announced the launch of its new Overlander EXT Modular Power Management package, which sets the standard for factory installed systems. The original Overlander II package was launched by Jayco as an option for model year 2021 and the new Overlander EXT package is a considerable step up in power, components and flexibility.
The package will be offered as an option on the 2022 Jayco North Point® and Pinnacle® fifth wheels and the Jayco Seismic® toy haulers. The new Overlander EXT features 6 Renogy 200 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panels (1200W total), 6-12V 100AH Lithium-Iron Phosphate Batteries (600AH, 7.2kWh of Stored Power), 3000W Pure Sine Wave Inverter Charger with 50A Bypass, 100A Charge Controller and a 600A Battery Monitor. Also included is a DC to DC battery charger to allow charging from the tow vehicle while driving to your next destination.
The Overlander EXT package offers some additional features like:
- Factory installed and backed by a 2 year warranty
