Re: help with wiring solar setup

Ok so I had this solar power system running for a couple of weeks now although it has mostly been cloudy. Mostly sunny today but with a rainstorm around 4 o'clock. 171 amp hours total. ,mostly to charge my batteries and run the fridge. I do not use much power during the day, and in fact was only here 3 or 4 hours. I still have not seen Peak output over 43amps. I am a little disappointed in this, but perhaps that is off my battery will accept. I have 12 6volt 220 amp golf cart batteries making a 12 volt system

When did you see this, do not forget if battery voltage is up to absorb ish, the amps will be reduced, Even if you have full rated panel output 3x 275w / 14v = 58a as max,
When you have good sun, try turning other things on to load system up, If the Batteries are full, They will not accept any more anyway, Have a look ( post a pic) at the ob display when it working,
