Free Solar Book for Newbies

This book does a good job of covering the basics of tending batteries and managing loads. And gives a good explanation of the process.
I donít work for Victron or promote their products. I did buy some of their products used and the ones I bought have been excellent.

Thank you for the link. I don't believe I am clueless to solar, but I am still lost. Just bought my bus, and once I confirm there are no rust issues, my first priority is getting solar set up while I have enough of a chunk of money together to do it right and complete.

Reading this booklet now.

Glad you're finding the booklet useful. Itís a good overview. I remember my first systems and how a good manual made a world of difference.
If you get curious about batteries then reading battery university dot com is loaded with info.
