  1. Re: After buying a 4x4 what should the first item be to spend money on improving it?

    Spend as much money as you can on improving your own skills. If you are new to the sport, your vehicle's ability, regardless of make, far exceeds yours. Make peace with that on day one and your...

    Re: solar control question

    The 2 in series panels physically being unable to exceed 44.2v (that is why it is stated as open circuit) it won't put a 50v controller at risk. 5.8v I believe is more than enough safety margin.

    Re: solar control question

    Your controller is good for your 4 panels.

    Your battery will "tell" the controller it's 12v, so good.

    Your open circuit voltage on those panels are 22.1v, so you could wire the panels in one of...

    Re: Too many panels on one MPPT - what happens?

    As long as your batteries are taking charge, your voltages will be in control. The use pulls down the PV.

    The problem starts when the batteries are full, and the power has no-where to go.

    Just something to keep in mind. That "up to 200 cycles" is the reason why conventional batteries are not ideal for an inverter backup system.
