Help Combining Panels (pics)
I would like some help in determining how, or even if, I
should combine two panel sets I have installed on my motorhome and trailer.
Just to give you an understanding of what I have, here is a picture of my
As you can see from the photo, my 315 watt Solarworld panels are actually mounted on the rear door of my trailer, while I have two more Unisolar amorphous panels are on top of the motorhome.
I normally have the trailer with me, but occasionally travel with just the motorhome. I know I can use both sets of panels independently of each other, and that is what I currently do. But what I want to know is if I can, or should, combine them for more power when both the trailer and motorhome are connected. I have read of the drawbacks to combining different types of panels, but I am still a little confused as to if I could benefit from combining all of my panels as in the picture below.
I would like to know if these two panel sets are compatible in there outputs enough to justify combining them, or would this degrade the overall performance of the system?
I welcome your comments or suggestions.
