MPPT

Garbonz, even on a single 12V panel, the MPPT will find the more efficient balance of voltage and current to maximize power because nominal 12V panels can have a higher functional voltage (e.g. 18V). It's true that very small power setups will benefit less in comparison to cost, but that's below about 150W. This is a 320W setup and there will be a noticeable difference versus a PWM.

In addition, this particular setup has the ability to get auxiliary power via a 24VDC power supply (transforming 110VAC external plug-in power). Given that this controller has auto-recognition for 24V or 12V, it can switchover to taking 24V input and run all the same 12V loads (and/or recharge the batteries) in the event they can't or don't want to use the PVs.

Love the snow covered mountains seen in the distance. If you removed the heater for this solar install, what are you doing for heat?

We have a small Mr. Buddy (I think that's the name) heater that we'll run for maybe 10 minutes before bed if needed on the early spring trips.
