Re: Charging on battery storage with solar charging

Thanks for all the help. Putting back burner until spring. I like the inverter needs upgrading and I need see if worth it. Now using these panels to charge 15 (AGM) 100 amp batteries and using that power for outside lighting.

Trailer Hitch

Anyone know if a trailer hitch voids warranty in any way? If anyone has a hitch, what hitch do you recommend?

Current AA version is 4.26.0.904. You have to leave the "regular" version on the phone and wait until you are notified of an update via the Play store. It would then push the AA version at that point. First time took 3 days to be notified of the update. Ok thanks. I am one rev off. Lets s...
