I have an RV that I'm trying to make self sustainable while camping. The RV has the RV-30 DE Charge Controller.
I have (3) solar panels wired parallel. All purchased on AMAZON (links provided):(2) RICH SOLAR 200 Watt 12 Volt Moncrystalline Solar Panel 9.8 amp power https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0851RPM1Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
(1) Xantrex 780-0160-02 Solar Panel Expansion Kit - 160W, Rigid 8.3 amp power https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QZD7FDR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Unfortunately I had not found the article Mixing solar panels – Dos and Don’ts before I purchased them. I'm finding that on optimum days I'm only able to occasionally 19 AMPS with an average of 15 AMPS on the controller. Could anyone advise me why I'm only averaging 15 AMPS and how I could increase the AMPS. With only 15 amps of charge, during a typical sunny day, I'm only able to charge the house batteries 5% (I lose 15% at night). I was hoping to be getting at least 24 AMPS. HELP!
