Here is my very basic schematic of our solar setup and the supply list. Click this Bus Build Supply Link for links to all of the parts below! I will forever leave this as FREE because I understand how VALUABLE this info is when you know NOTHING!
I was very fortunate to have HANDYBOB SOLAR here on WORDPRESS help me design and tweak my system all over the phone and over a period of months. I gathered the main parts, and started drawing the design…over and over and over….until I got it right, THANKS BOB! Then I collected all of the fuses and wires and connections and I was off to the races. Our solar setup worked successfully for 3.5 years, and continues to work to this day! We had to maintain the batteries every few months, cleaning and filling with distilled water, as well as clean the solar panels for it all to work 100% efficiently.
