Norm, do I understand correctly that this controller did not have a place to plug in a remote temp sensor cable? Just a sensor built into the case?
You wrote that you intended to run the entire load through the controller. Please explain what you mean. Did you rewire so the battery
power must run through the controller before it reaches the trailer's existing 12v system? Was that very complicated to do? I assume this controller won't tell anything about usage unless this is done.
Normally the trailer battery
will recharge somewhat from the tow vehicle while driving. If a solar panel
is mounted on the roof and supplies power at the same time as the tow vehicle, I'm wondering if there are any issues/conflicts with the dual sources?
What gauge wire did you end up using?
I'm considering buying this controller off ebay, and a 60 or so watt solar panel
blvd. Thanks for all the info you've shared.
