Well I installed the Komaes 100watt Kit over the weekend and I didn't have any output coming down to the controller. When unplugging MC4 connectors to check continuity to the controller and output from the panel (voc) everything was good. When I reconnected the connectors and went back to check the output again just in front of the controller Bam! had power. Some unknown reason I had a bad connection in one of the MC4 plugs. It's all good now. It's not a fancy controller in regards to displaying voltage but does have some form of stage charging and programable timers. Wanted to go with a kit and should have spent a little more for the Renogy but didn't. It will serve my needs for the near future and I will expand as needed. Trying to understand how the solar and the inverter charger will live together, but from what I read they should get along just fine. I wasn't sure if the chassis battery was going to benefit from the solar but it seams to. Not sure how that is, based on the way it's wired directly to the house.
