Solar battery maintainer installed

Still need to get a couple screws and nuts to better attach the solar panel but the regulator is mounted and the battery is charging! Click image for larger version

3 watt but they make bigger ones. This one fit nicely on my propane cover and the cover top still opens to access the bottle valves. Under $50 for what you see on Amazon

Go the distance. Get a 100 or 200 watt basic system from WindyNation.com or Renogy.com and never worry about battery charge state again.

We just installed the WN 200 watt with their upgraded PWM 30 amp controller $315 plus tax and free shipping, for another one of our friends. It took two of us 2 1/2 hours and about $30 in misc hardware plus a tube of self leveling Dicor. Now all she has to do is check battery water twice a year and remember to run her generator once a month,since she will hardly ever need it now that she has solar keeping her batteries topped off.

I'm just going with a trickle charger for my battery. $60 and 10 minutes. Thanks
