Can't speak for anyone but myself and even that is shaky sometimes - but I think I would calculate my daily electrical usage (use 12V when possible; add 10% to 120V devices because of inverter efficiency) and have battery capacity to meet that need while maintaining my desired minimum charge (as a general rule, batteries live longer when not discharged far but can't find that graphic just now) and have solar panels to recharge the planned usage in a reasonable time (presume 5 hours a day?). My battery capacity needs to be adequate to deal with the occasional cloudy day without harming the batteries.

Thanks for the information. Have to decide soon as we are heading to Quartzsite AZ in less than a month. It would be a big help there.

Thanks, I did the same with my two 100w panels. Going to add a third next weekend and move my TH. Not getting much sun where it's at now..
