motorhome solar system question
Westonia Posts: 3Registered Users ✭
I have 3 solar panels on top of my motorhome, each panel is 300w 12v. the way they are wired at the moment with the connectors they each panel came gives me a total of 100v in full proper sunlight. I have 2 deep cycle 12v batteries as well as 6 other 12 car batteries that I've accumulated. first question is do I really need any batteries other than the 2 deep cycle 12v's I have? and do I need a charge controller that has the ability to charge 2 batteries? or maybe a better question really is can anyone tell me the proper way to keep a battery bank charged using the solar panels I have, and how I should have my system setup before I end up making a uneducated and possibly expensive mistake! I'm new to this and I want to be properly educated solar and battery power applications. I appreciate any guidance and knowledge I can soak up from others here who have the knowledge I do not.
