    That wasn't meant to be serious just factual. Didn't mean for it to come off wrong. Tim

    looks good, I have 3, 100 watt panels on mine and I am going to add a few more. It works great when it is just my wife and I but add a few grand kids or our last two at home and they use the juice. I want the panels to be able to keep up with the use during the day etc... I might add two more 6v as well. Tim how many batteries do you have in your setup?

    I'm currently using the outback 60 charge controller and it can handle up to 700watts of power, its a solid unit but spendy I also installed a disconnect switch from Amazon about 85 bucks but I like being able to shut the power off from the panels when needed.

    I went crazy on securing wires when I realized that if they rub the shielding off will start arching to anything metal and not stop until the toy hauler burns down. I'm looking forward to your finished photos Tim.
