After connecting my new 250w (x2) solar panels
through their MPPT
controllers to the batteries
(as usually instructed) I get everything but charge.
The controllers show that the batteries
are being charged and even go through the 3 stage sequence of Bulk, Accept and Float. My Xantrex 2000 panel shows the voltage is there but not the Amps. The battery
hours continue to drop.
The batteries are actually continuing to discharge while being charged by the solar panels
. This does not happen when running the motor
. The Xantrex panel shows the Amps are coming in and battery
Another issue is the solar
controllers heat up extensively when the sun is up and beating.
Any thoughts, recommendations, solutions will be most appreciated.
