Correct, 30 amps is it.
So 4 80 Watt panels at best case 100% perfect output is 320 Watts divided by voltage of 12 would be 26 amps, divided by 14 volts would be 22.9 amps.
That also assumes perfect everything, no voltage loss and panels angled right at the sun.
I have 4 100 Watt panels on my 45 amp controller and rarely see over about 26 amps. But, my panels are flat mounted and I live in the Midwest so never get 100% output.
I had the same 30 amp controller in my old Signature with one factory panel, I think it was 85 Watts, not sure. I never saw above about 5.7 amps with it.
Assuming they had 4 of the same panels I had 1 of, the 30 amp controller is within proper spec. Mine was a 99 Signature.
