Hi again. I've gotten my solar hooked up now. It took some doing. I attempted emailing the customer support for Nature Power for information regarding the converter back flowing through the solar controller. Just couldn't get an answer - yes or no. So left that bell-whistle inop. As it sits, it is set up for charging only and not gauging the amount of the load.
I used #10 wire for all leads to the outside of the TT. The wires from the solar panels seem real small like #14 or 12. This size was supplied with the solar panels. The panels will be loose and not attached to the TT. The total distance is no more than 10' from the TT connections. I am running 2 85w panels. The next idea I have is attaching them together and folding them face in and transporting them on my roof rack and putting some kind of eye bolt for security. Hmmmm....gotta think this one out.
This is the solar controller next to the Surge Guard, something else I installed. :-)) the only thing left to do is decide what type of protection and where to install on the solar panel line. Until then everything stays unplugged.
The original lamp were 921s....12 of them in the TT. There are 3 sets of 2 at 2.4 amps a set. The LEDs are .25 amps at .50 amps per set. My batts are 2 ea size 24s. Wish I could go bigger, but I think I am as heavy as I can on the front.
Only time will tell if this will work as expected or needing another panel.
Thanks all for you thoughts and ideas.
