No need for a video
In my case I have 5 panels, I divided them 2 on one controller 3 on the other, fairly simple.
The wire from 2 get put in series and then they run to a breaker, the 3 remaining panel get put in series and run to a second breaker. From the 2 beakers run a wire to the each of the controllers then from the controllers to the 12 volt battery
The factory cuts the holes in for the breaker in the
wall and supplies the bus.
Slick as *****.
The only problem for me is set up. I needed a MasterVolt tech to initialize the system and set it up to perform for my needs, I have not idea how to do that. I wonder if that will come back to haunt us.
If one panel is shaded the second still gives great power.
My experience is that shading is not a problem, in the video you can see the panels are way aft and even under sail I get enough juice to make it all happen, like magic.
I love my solar, it's a game
I love my washing
I love my water
I love my shop
My entire set up is just about perfect for us, not everyone will agree and that's OK.
Now the real test will be how dependable will it all be.
The jury is still out.
The big test begins July 23, 2016 when we set sail for, the South Pacific
I will keep you up to date.
