Thanks, because of your help I am now attached!
Of course, now you have to tell me how I can make sure it is charging
at least one, hopefully both batteries!
Here is my plan, so you know I am at least trying to think for myself and figure this out. I am currently attached to shore power
I will turn off the shore power
at the marina shore power box for my slip. During the early part of the day. Now, batteries without that good shore power immediately start to drop down in voltage. Mine float, being gel, around 13.39. So when I turn shore power off, without the solar panels
being hooked up, they both drop really evenly for some reason, and after several hours they are at around 12.9.
I'm not sure what a 130 watt solar panel connected to an mppt
controller, connected to two 100 ah gel batteries should put them at.
I would think at the end of the day, with no shore power, but the solar charging
, if they test at above 13 that means the panels
Does that make sense? Should I turn anything on to try to use some power? Or should I just see if the panel keeps them topped off?
