Re: Stupid solar question

mango, no you don't need a cut off switch. There is nothing wrong with multiple charging sources at the same time. Only caveat: turn off the shorepower when you start your engine, if you bank is full the alternator's tach won't work until you apply a load.

There are a LOT of solar websites out there with good information.

Maine Sail is a great resource. Go to his website.
