Re: solar charging problem - troubleshooting help please!

Faster, I don't run the fridge off the batteries so it's just LED lights, radios and sometimes the tiller pilot hooked up to the windvane (when motoring). I mention adding another 180amp battery in the future as I will likely go to a 12v fridge when my propane one dies. I would also increase my solar array at that time. I agree about not needing to monitor the starter battery. I normally charge it up, isolate it and forget about it. I would like to keep a tab, however, on the "in and out" of the house bank. I don't need anything sophisticated though. I believe Mainesail mentioned a few options he thought were good value, but I can't remember the thread.
