Interesting technical discussion, but by late afternoon today the controller was in absorption mode with battery
volts at 14.2 (gels). Functionally, working great...two days with normal house loads on nothing but solar
. Loaded voltage now at 2000 COT, with fridge compressor
cycled on, is 12.9.
Maybe this off season I'll tweak it some more. I can get the 8 AWG run down to just a few feet (its only actually about 10' or less now that I've pulled the wiring
in the boat). With a bit more effort I can get this down to just a few feet and even beef it up with a bit more work. But for now its time to take a little boat work break and then get into get the hell off the dock
