Should I Run My Solar/Wind/EFOY Connections Direct to the House Batteries or the Positve/Negative bus?

Question:

Quick question as I rewire my sailboat house system. On my EFOY 210i and my solar/wind connections do I want to connect them directly to the house batteries terminal or can I run it to the positive buss / negative buss. As they are supply only power I'm trying to keep the terminal connections to the 2/0 cable only and it to the buss. Make sense? - David

Answer:

Good question David.  Bringing the EFOY and Solar connections to a positive unswitched distribution and negative bus is correct. As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to overcrowd the battery post with distribution connections. - Jeff
