Can a motor power a 33' RV?
Can a motor drive a 33' RV?
Is there a motor designed to drive each wheel instead of driving the transmission?
Is it stupid to consider an electric RV?Hi, Robert -
First, that is one BIG RV to be converting to 100% electric. I have seen a few successful SMALL Class B motorhomes, but an RV that size is unusual.
That said? The tricky part I think is going to be the expense and weight of batteries; the motor is the least of your worries. You can use two or more motors together if needed.
Wheel motors...not so much. Seems like such a good idea, but I don't know anybody who's been happy with this in a car (or bigger). Bike yes, car no.
No, it's not a stupid idea at all. As lithium batteries get better, cheaper and lighter - more and more people are going to do this because it just makes sense. Come back and let us know how it goes!
