a (Waeco CB40) fridge which implies a cascade of other things with it. having a fridge and no main elecricity means that I need a solar
panel, I have no objection to that since I can keep my deep cycle batteries in shape and occasionally use a laptop
for work on board.
Attached is a list of things I will use, together with their amp draw. I will use my boat for 2 summer months a year
I have x2 115 gel batteries (12v) for the house bank, and one optima battery
for the starter.
I figured that I will be needing around 120watts of solar
panel which is roughly 10amps at 12 volts.. the boat is based in Malta
so summer sun is not problem.
I will get the Trimetric TM-2025-RV + 500 amp Shunt because I read some good things about it on handy bob's solar blog.
I cannot seem to find a 10a dual controller, I do not want any Ebay china stuff.. any suggestions?
Also, can anyone suggest a good single
120w or two 60w panels
? The ones I've found are either from shady vendors or from expensive chandleries.. I am based in Austria and Malta
