I am in the process of setting up solar for my new 2016 Precept 31ul. I have (2) 100watt monocrystalline panels, a 3000watt inverter, (1) 100ah deep cell marine batt, a 30amp controller (PWM type) which I'll be changing for a better one. and all the wiring. I'm also going to install a transfer switch between my stock house batts and my new set up. I may even add an additional batt. Anyone have any thoughts or comments. Please advise!

interesting solar enhancement

Thanks for the post. I have been interested in enhancing our 31ul too.

One of my biggest complaints is that the factory inverter/electrical
only powers the front driver are outlet and the dinette tv.
I would like a better setup in which the mh had power to all outlets.

What made you decide to add solar and a new inverter?
How did you decide on the size of panels/inverter?
What positive impact will the upgrade do?

Thanks and keep me/us informed.

p.s. I will provide a link to some full-timers solar setup too.

Mike

Zion is AWESOME! We have never been there in October probably a great time to visit. As much as we would like to attend the rally our children are still in school and we live in VA so it will not be possible to make the trip, at least this Fall.

Will definitely post pictures and performance info. once the solar system is installed.

Can tell you the two Crown golf cart batteries made a huge difference, the stock batteries are worthless.
