The Solar System

I installed a solar charging system on my Motorhome a couple years ago. Whenever we would dry dock, the generator would have to be started to use any heavy electric load or to charge the batteries.So I installed four 55 watt solar panels, an inverter charger, a 30 amp charge controller with a Catastrophe fuse, and inverter remote control panel inside the motorhome to save the trouble of going outside to control the unit. Now, without being plugged in we can run everything except the A.C. on six(6)-6 volt battries run in parallel. When the generator is started,the built in charger has the ability to recharge from the generator when we over use or when solar doesn't provide enough during bad weather.
