hi guys, any of you boaters have solar as part of your power structure!.....just finished installing my 2-100 watt panels on the camper for our 3 month trek down into that awesome country you call the "lower states!".....we plan on going "off grid" a bit but would be nice not to use the little Honda if we could get away with it!!........today was thick cloud cover and my amp meter was reading 1300 milliamps! into the battery so that was promising!..i have swiched over most lights to LED so light are "free" from now on!!!...each light now draws 167 milli amps, far cry from the 1.6 amps OLD lights!!...anyway, this is pretty portable so could use it anywhere, was thinking the pilot house--maybe one panel?.....so, any of boaters have panels?...thanks larry
ps oh yah..gonna find some tilt levers and attach then to the panels to "aim" better once we are all settled into a place for a bit!
my batteries were topped up already, so after a bit the charger floated it down to 13.4 amps!...."in theory", I should get about 12-13 amps, but in reality if I get 4-5 amps full sun I will be a happy camper
