Re: solar charging problem - troubleshooting help please!

Not sure it's necessary to monitor the start bank.. as long as it gets charged, should be not an issue.

We're still using an old Link10 on the house bank, but there must be better/smarter stuff out there now. Have just installed an ACR (Blue seas) to look after charging start bank, and do not monitor its in-and-out.

On the house bank its really nice to know how much is 'in the tank'. Are you running refrig? 180A is pretty slim for that, but I guess your sunshine is more reliable than ours.
