Help me with my Renogy setup
I am building a setup on my RV roof consisting of:
- 1x 175W flexible panel
- 4x 100W flexible panel
- 1x Rover-LI 40A
- 2x Smart 100AH Lithium batteries
- 1x 500A battery monitor
- What is the best way to wire up these dissimilar panels? All in parallel? Series-parallel? Shading is definitely a concern for the RV. The cable run from the panels to the controller (which is right next to the batteries) is about 15ft of 8wg.
- What max/min voltage settings are correct for the 500A monitor to get the correct readings?
- I am only getting about 225W max in full sun. Is this expected?
