Advice Needed On 15Yr Old Panel & Controller.


Recommended Posts

I bought the panel about 15yrs ago, it's claimed output is 48 watts the regulator is 4. 5 amps and stuck to the rear of the panel. Would I get better power to the battery if I moved the regulator to the rear of the battery box, and would I need to upgrade the cable as I notice that the cable from the regulator to the battery is thinner than on the panel side. Could I add an extra panel and use both through a bigger controller. My van is a 2010 buccaneer caravel. We do not use a telly,using lights, water/ shower pump, and the heating pump on colder nights. Battery is Yuasa 100 amp. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
