Re: Mainsail comes through again with solar

I'm about to pull the trigger and buy a Genesum GV-10 Genasun GV-10 MPPT Solar Charge Controller and have a couple questions.

1) We have gel-cell house batteries. Do I have to get a special one, or will the standard one (for lead-acid batteries) work?

2) I will have several 130 watt panels. Can I have multiple GV-10s, or will they interfere with each other? (I'm thinking especially as they switch from bulk charge to float mode.)

Regards,
Brad
