I am in the process of adding a KISS. Never enough power. This will add to my power sources. Next paycheck I will add another 320 watts of solar
. Our Bimini
will carry it all with out then sticking out everywhere

It is like buying
tools. Buy the best to fit the job and 20 years later you will be still using them.
