I have no such problem. Over four year ago I had AM Solar AM Solar's Educational Pages for RV Solar Systems install on my roof four AM 100 Solar Panels along with a Magnum Energy MS 2000 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter Charger, 4 ea six volt Lifeline GPL-6CT 300 Amp Hour AGM (Absorbed Glass Mats) Batteries, and a HPV-30DR Solar Charge Controller and Monitor.
Never a worry of discharged batteries, coach or engine.

Ok, I read their helpfull info, however they fail to tell you how big the panels are, I need to know so I can measure the free space up there.

With how much juice I consume I'll need as many as will fit.
(Less the space that will be a DataStorm )

Do you need a seperate Charge controller for the engine battery?

Hi, Thinking about also getting the batteryminder. Did you get the free digital meter or battery indicator? If the digital meter--is it the standard run of the mill meter? Not sure how it would indicate the sulfate condition of a battery--per their description of unit. Thanks

The digital meter they send looked super cheap and you can get a fairly decent multimeter for $20 so I ordered my Batteryminders from Amazon for $139 and figured I would use the $20 I saved to buy a this (which works good so far): Equus 3320 Auto-Ranging Digital Multimeter : Amazon.com : Automotive
