I have the two 140 solar panels
controller. I did have a Honda
2000. I am also from So Cal
and Minggat in now in the same Mexico
your headed to. In my opinion, after have done what you are talking about, you're putting in some expensive overkill.
When trying to bring it all together, we often go for the worst case scenario. that is why I HAD the Honda
2000. Sold it. Never needed it at all.
Save the money
there and be nice to yourself. You can use the space that the Honda would consume to put a stand along refrigeration
unit of some kind. I have a Fridgfreeze. I have seen it consume as little as 11 amp hours all night.
Which is another point you may not have thought about. Once you get solar
, you don't have to count amp hours during the daytime. I have seen my panels put out as much as 20 amps and I am always full well before noon.
I have come to realize that I was really worrying way too much. I now run my 19 TV and DVD
and the stereo, along with the fridge and anchor
light and VHF
24/7 and the batteries still get topped off before noon.
And just so that you are aware, I used to add water
to my batteries once a year in So Cal
, if they need it or not. It's once a month in Baja
, I have 3, 12 volt TPPL AGMs because I DID mind the extra maintenance
. 2 of my 3 banks are miserable to get to.
