How to Connect a Solar Controller to My Batteries?


I'm installing solar panels with a charge controller. Where would the best point be to connect the controller into the boat's house battery circuit? - Sydney


Thank you for your question Sydney.  You would connect the connections from the solar controller directly to the house batteries. If you have a battery monitor, make sure the negative connection is done to the load side of the shunt. Also, make sure you also use a fuse on the positive circuit, and the fuse should be located at the battery.  - Jeff
