Solar Connection to Converter

Post by MarkP » Fri Sep 13, 2019 7:34 pm

I'm thinking of adding a super basic 100w solar setup like this:

to my 1992 B190 to help top off my house battery when not plugged in. I know the basic wiring is solar panel>controller>battery, but would I just connect the positive and negative wires from the controller to the converter? If so, would they just go to the "batt pos" and "batt neg" connections? As you can tell, i've never worked with solar so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

That would work. Whether it connects directly to the battery or elsewhere in the system, it'll work. There may be a slight loss of current by running it that way, but probably not enough to worry about, especially given the size of the battery cables running to the fuse panel.
