    Re: Discovery 4 12v Anderson Socket Rear

    I did it on my D3, and in hindsight if I had to do it for a day job it would not be cheaper. DIY is always the lowest cost option.

    Re: Discovery 4 12v Anderson Socket Rear

    The OEM wire is rated for 30A, and works well with my HCDP DC DC unit.

    There is two wires, one is permanently wired (30A) and a switched one.

    Re: Lower control arms - D4

    Stay away from poly bushes on the D4 lower control arms, rather go the RRS bushes.

    Re: Fronius Inverters

    If the aim is only to reduce utility bills, you first need to calculate if the panels you have will ever pay of the new inverter, and how much will you save with panels not positioned in an ideal way.

    Re: Solar System for Home ( yet another :)

    The arrestor is like a switch, it will see the DC voltage on your PV lines, and when it exceeds the design voltage it will short it down to earth, preventing the spike to travel into your MPPT.

  19. Re: Kool Energy 1kW - 100Ah 12V AGM Battery - Mobile Load Shedding Kit Unit

    I would say it's safe to add another 120W panel, but not two.

    It will give a bit more range, but only during sunshine hours. I would rather add another battery in parallel.
