I would want the controller out of the weather which is why I would not just mount it outside the trailer.
Absolutely, it should not be mounted outside - that's why I thought on a kitchen cabinet. But the pass-thru is probably a better idea.
The Renogy kit has a premium MPPT controller, with remote access capability. Its on sale now (10% off) for the next 6 days, so I'll probably jump on it soon. The warranties on all of them are about 25 years. I imagine that they are all prbably about the same quality.
Before I install I'll stick my head in the pass-thru to see how far it will go.....LOL.
Thanks for the comments. My plan gets better every day....
