why would a solar bank be so low? the poster doesnt really talk about his loads. wouldnt the solar panels and controller have kept the batteries charged given enough time?
I'm not sure why you even connect the vehicle alternator for the problems you guys are listing above. wiresize et al... alternator seems like a poor choice of a chargers for a solar bank.
someone explain why? am i missing something?
It had rained for several days and my normal draw along with being at a music festival found my voltage at an all time low. Neglect. Normally it can handle all of my needs. I had no idea that at 8 volts it would draw so much just to recharge. Im trying to use the alternator to keep my bank topped off so i can run my air conditioner, through an invertor.
