Re: Charger Sizing... (too big?)
...within the year I will also increase the size of the house bank. Currently have a group 24 starter battery and 4 golf carts (200Ah) on the house side. Longer term plans include upgrading to 400+ on the house side (possible AGM)
You already have over 400 AH in your house bank if you have 4 golf carts. Golf cart batteries are between 210 and 240 AH each. 4 in series/parallel will give you between 420 and 480 AH.
And the others are right - the charger can't be too big.
