Solar Panel Question

I'm going to get a solar panel for The Van and I'm going to pre-wire it and then have someone who knows what they're doing do the final connections. I have the RB 50 interior, and all the electrical gizmos for the 12v / shore power distribution are located on the right side of The Van under the rear seat / fold out bed.

My question is: Do the wires from the controller terminate in this area, or do they go directly to the house battery in front of the rear axle under The Van?

Re: Solar Panel Question

My controller wires terminate with all the other electrical connections, not at the battery.

Re: Solar Panel Question

while this is still a work in progress on the "Wiki" page there are some diagrams of solar hookups there:
