Where is my charge controller located

Does anyone know where the Sun Saver Duo is located on a 2016 Anthem 42DEQ? Iíve looked in all the under bays and in the battery compartment. Just wanted to ask before I start pulling panels.

On my 2014 Anthem they're in the compartment right above the door.

If you are talking about the controller for the two roof Solar panels, on my 2015 Anthem, the controller was above the entrance door.

On my '18 Anthem, the display is located above the entry door.

The controller is located in the basement, in the third bay aft of the entry door on the aft carpeted wall, just inboard of the Electric Disconnects:

Just inboard of that panel, there's a carpeted panel attached with velcro. Simply pry that panel off and you'll find the control module. At least, that's where it is on my '18.

Take care,
Stu

Great! I guess that makes sense.

On my '18, the batteries are adjacent to the rear basement wall and, as I understand DC electricity, there's more power loss the longer the feed from the solar panels. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe your batteries are directly across, behind the driver's side steer tire. It would make sense for that wiring to be farther forward than mine.

Take care,
Stu

You are correct, an easy run straight across.

The 2016s come prepped for solar as standard equipment. The wires run down from one of the rooftop covers to a small carpeted box in the curbside front basement compartment and are left there for future use. A second set of wires runs over to the batteries in the roadside front compartment in 2016. If you order the solar panel option the charge controller is mounted in the front curbside bay. In later years when they changed the battery configuration and moved them to the mid-section of the coach I'm sure that the charge controller was moved as well.
