You list a 90 amp charger. That is a big charger, so I assume you have a large batt. bank. Are you only putting 100 watts of solar? Maybe as a battery tender, when stored?
No conflicts expected is what I was hoping to hear..
Iso relay - I may install a disconnect switch then, I would prefer it to be "Mostly" used for charging that rear batts but would like the option to work either way... your thoughts ??
Converter/Charger - Yes, 90 Amps.. I couldnt see the value in cheaping out on the converter/charger, It was "used but never installed" when I bought it off ebay.. it was a good deal, If i remember correctly it was closely priced to a "new never installed" 60 amp model by PD, Figured it cant hurt...
Battery bank for now is 2 group 29 Deep cycle batts.. to be upgraded when they are dead.. Not knowing what I really wanted/needed I got them a few months ago.
Solar - Yes, 100 Watts. I never used solar power before and I was informed that it can be expanded by adding additional solar panels up to the Amp rating of the Charge converter providing that i have the "Roof real estate".. only 24ft and there is a cargo carrier on the roof too. Yes for storage and any other time..
If I remember ohms law correctly, 100W @ 12V = 8.3 A ???
Im sure there will be some other influances, The charge controller will draw some and the V will not be a constant 12V ect..
I was concerned about "back feeding" into the solar and other issues. I am aware that DC will not produce a Sine that could be out of phase when running several charging systems like AC, I wanted to get the opinions of Vetern RVers as I am still new..
Considering my current Batt size..
What would you consider a good Solar Wattage amount for the camper?
Considering my future Batt upgrade ( Trojan t-105 )...
what would you consider a good solar wattage amount for the camper ?
Thank You !!!!! Your input and suggestions are valued, If it wasnt for you guys I would be lost !!
Thanks Again !
