Newbe setting up solar on boat, layout ideas. comtrollers
I have such a tight schedule I have not posted much, would like to share more.
Project 1: rig new boat (2003) for Caribbean trip Dec 1.
New Batteries, 5 8Ds replacing the 48Ds, No more space.
4 – 270 watt solar panels = 1080 watts =~77ah
210 amp Idle pro Alternator/ Balmar regulator On hold mounting problems
A case of rum
I am a Newbe to solar, bought 4 370 watt panels for a boat. The panels wiil be mounted on a flat roof on the rear of boat. Set in a square, could be some shading on two at times. Silfab 370 watt 39.7 volt 9.39 amps. New boat batteries AGM or Gel 1250ah five 8Ds. 12 volt system.
QUESTON; suggestions on set up, I would prefer one MPPT, easier to set up. But I just bought 2 60amp MPPT. Really pushing a deadline.
