200 Watt Eclipse Suitcase Plus 100 Watt Panel
I bought the 200 Watt Eclipse Monocrystalline Solar Suitcase w/o Controller: RNG-KIT-STCS200MB-NC-BC
The panels/case seem very well constructed and came wired in series with two +- MC4 connectors.
I added the Renogy Voyager - 20A PWM Waterproof Charge Controller. I recently ordered a 100 Watt Monocrystalline Panel (Compact Design) and another (new edition) Voyager 20A PWM Charge Controller.
The plan is to maintain maximum portability and deployment options, primarily while towing travel trailer w/dual 6v GC batteries (100 watt panel mounted on Tow Vehicle roof rack) and in campground with 200 watt suitcase.
I want option to deploy panels (either 200W suitcase or single 100W panel) as far as 30 feet from battery bank or as close as 6 feet. I do not want to permanently mount panels and/or controller(s).
My build so far includes:
On 200 Watt suitcase (series) I have short section MC4 to anderson connectors (10 AWG wire).
On 100 Watt panel I have short section MC4 to anderson connectors (10 AWG wire).
Voyager controllers have short sections anderson connectors (10 AWG wire).
Battery bank has fused SAE connector for input and I have made up several different lengths of 10AWG extensions with anderson connectors.
This configuration allows me to quickly deploy either or both "systems" with controller at battery bank or at panel(s).
After all that, my questions are: Have I made a mistake with using PWM Voyager controller instead of MPPT, particularly on the 200 W Eclipse suitcase which is wired in series? Should I re-wire 200 Watt suitcase to parallel and use the PWM controller @ the suitcase panels? I think the Voyager PWM controller is fine with the single 100 W panel?
