New to this whole solar thing...
This forum has such a vast amount of knowledge and for some reason, I've been trying to do this all on my own (with my wife's help). Why not actually participate in the conversation?
I'm trying to understand solar. I know I'm not a dumb guy but engineering is not my strength and for some reason I thought I could just learn it on my own. I just want to know if I'm on the right track so far.
Based upon what I think we'd like to be able to run in our rig, I calculated a total of 277 AH. If I'm running a 12V system, then I need about 473W of Solar Panels. On top of that, I'd likely need around 600 AH in battery storage (if we have cloudy weather, there are lots of things that we can cut out on our usage). So I was thinking we'd get 5 100W panels, 6 100AH 12V AGM batteries, a 2000W Inverter/Charger and then a good MPPT.
Does that sound about right? Still a little confused on how the voltages of the different parts all work together.
