    Re: Solar panel recommendation for long term parking

    No. It's going to be stored in a paid lock up. The units with plugs are about R100 a month more.

    The power panel is already wired with a controller, would just need the panel and wire.

    Are you still running the standard boost control on the ZD30? 2008, ZA spec I assume it's a DI and not CRD?
