I currently use a EPEVER MPPT Solar Charge Controller 30A Tracer3210AN + Remote Meter MT50, the system charges two 200Ah AGM batteries from 2 310 watt REC solar panels. I am fully charged within a couple of hours after sunrise, even if it is overcast. I have yet to plug into shore power since I put the system online.

That's great to hear! My 8420AN arrived yesterday and I'm excited to see it work. Not sure when that will be though, as it's been raining almost nonstop here. And today I take her in for new tires. So today is shot. But maybe over the weekend I can get something accomplished.

Thanks for responding, and welcome to the forum! Looks like you've done an impressive job with your build.

Thanks Jim, word of warning, no matter what, you must have the battery(s) connected to the MTTP before the solar panels. You should never have the panels connected to the MTTP without a battery connected to it or you can/will burn it up. I will be installing a switched circuit breaker to the panel hot line so if I need to I can kill the panel feed.

Yes, I do remember reading that from a couple of sources and I will follow the rule religiously. Thank you Rinsrig!
