New to this forum, Hi from Pea Ridge Arkansas.

We purchased a 1998 Beaver Contessa no Slides. Has 55000
Miles Diesel Pusher With Cat 3125 Motor.
Been my latest project, Has several things wrong with it mostly electrical oriented.
Has 4 Solar roof panels 2 larger ones wattage Im not sure,assuming they are 150 watt each at 300 watts . 2 smaller ones up front of roof maybe, 95 watt each 190 watts
The larger ones have solar regulator controls in battery compartment above the battery’s bay which reads 20 volts dc output. The smaller panels have separate solar control under bed. Which controls separate the smaller panels ones up front on roof,it outputs 13.4 volts dc.
I’m not sure what the Smaller solar controller supply’s?
I’m in need of a electrical Manuel for my year RV. It also has 3)12volt batteries for Chassis alone and 4) 6 volt for coach batteries.
I haven’t seen any wiring diagram of my RV.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated .

Welcome and sounds like you have an interesting coach. Please post the details (make, model or post a picture) of the solar controllers and maybe we can help. 20 amps heading to the batteries is respectable, and why the other controller under the bed of all places - who knows. Maybe the smaller panels were intended to be maintainer style but it's tough to tell without more to go on. End of day, 12 volts in and then 12 volts are heading somewhere else so follow the cables out.

Welcome aboard! Pea Ridge is in N.E Arkansas is it not? I lived several years in Poplar Bluff, MO and seems like in my work I drove down in that area at times. Unless I am badly confused. Which does happen more often these days!
