Need guidance for 1977 VW camper battery & solar arrangement
I think I am getting too much information, so am turning to this site for guidance.
Have a well preserved 77 camper bus with aux battery to manage refrigerator and small (8" ) fluorescent tube light.
Camping is planned with family, the current "house" battery that is in the camper is a deep marine battery (EverStart 625MCA) which I am sure is not the best option..
However, I did read the above battery can be fully discharged and charged without much consequence. - surprised me
Refrigerator in camper runs off 12V, draws 60 Watts = ~ 5 amps. Will have 1 small fluorescent (~ 8") light.
When the refrig is not plugged in, it aims for a set warmer temperature ( will still say 60 watts).
I am believing the above EverStart battery is not the best option to have, I was looking at:
Vmaxtanks Vmaxslr125 AGM Deep Cycle 12v 125ah SLA rechargeable Battery
"MAX. Charging Current: 30A MAX. Charging voltage: http://https//www.amazon.com/Vmaxtanks-Vmaxslr125-rechargeable-Solar-Inverters/dp/B00ACNO2AO
Or a Renogy Deep Cycle AGM Battery 12 Volt 100Ah / 10Hr.s http://https//www.amazon.com/Renogy-Battery-Marine-Off-grid-Applications/dp/B075RFXHYK/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=KU%3A+RNG-BATT-AGM12-100&qid=1556923365&s=automotive&sr=1-1-fkmr0
And either this or another similar solar panel
Renogy 100 Watt 12 Volt Monocrystalline http://https//www.amazon.com/Renogy-Monocrystalline-Foldable-Waterproof-Controller/dp/B079JVBVL3/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=renogy+portable+100+watt+solar+panel&qid=1556925573&s=automotive&sr=1-3
And looking at this controller Victron BlueSolar 75/15 MPPT Charge Controller - 15 Amps / 75 Volts, as it will disconnect the load either intermittantly or longer to allow the battery to charge fully by solar, and will disconnect load if battery is drained to a set point.
I have not looked at any inverters, thought this would be far enough in going until I get feedback if my plan is going ok, or am waaay off base.
Likely will be camping no more than 2 nights at a time ( other night in hotel to keep wife comfortable and happy)
Thanks for any feedback, i tried to keep the above as brief as possible to save reading.
Thanks so much
