What panels are you using?
Watts, cost, shipping?
Any failures?

Re: Panels?

2 Renogy 100 watt rigid mono panels, cost to me was 120 each delivered also have 2 100 watt grape flex panels that only put out between 3 and 4 amps in direct sun at solar noon . Cost 20 bucks to ship them ( rescued from scrap heap) p30l PWM controller ( had one failure when a friend accidentally disconnected the battery from the controller ) with how things are mounted at anchor I see approx 15 to 18 amps from the panels for 4 to 5 hours plus from sunrise to sunset variable for an approx average of 100 to 120 ah daily in summer .
