Zamp Solar Ready in 2401

Is there anything else to do other that plug the panels into outside Zamp outlet

It depends on exactly what “the panels” are.

If you purchased a Zamp briefcase, the answer is No.

Maybe run some more appropriately sized wire. You are better off going straight to the batteries from the solar controller.

Zamp Solar Ready in 2401

We bought 120 watts 3 panel solar panels from Overland https://overlandsolar.com/collection...20w-solar-unit

Tell the owner what youíre doing with it and he supplied the plug in.
Just plugged it in and sit the panels out.
With the case this fits right into one of the bins. It held us for 5 days of boondocking in Moab, we were at 80% when we left.
There is a Trimetric box my husband installed to watch the status of batteries etc but I donít imagine you have to have that.

You donít have to use Zamp brand.

We have friends that only boondock and they have 500 watt panels to keep 100%. My husband likes reservations.

That "Zamp" connector is 12 gauge wiring, and is tied directly to the batteries. I've re-purposed mine to run the 12V tire compressor in the event I ever need it. The current flows both ways...
