I've always figured 40 amp hours per day or so - is that about good nuf?
Looks to me that 40 amps would be under perfect conditions, which you don't have most of the time. I would think it be closer to 35 amps. CD also says my 260 watts of solar would give me 100 amps per day. 260 watts is 3 times what you have, so I think 40 amps per day is very high.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
