From the many discussions surrounding the benefits and drawbacks of series vs parallel solar wiring, I'm curious why I have not encountered anyone suggesting using bypass diodes between solar panels when wired in series?
It seems almost unanimous that bypass diodes are a good thing when installed in a solar panel, so why not install them between panels?
I recognize that it will complicate the wiring, but the benefit may be substantial. Has anyone tried this?
I need to replace my exterior fridge fan. The pre-existing mounts are screwed to the back of the fridge, but the holes are stripped so I need to relocate the mounts. Can I simply rescrew in another location on the back of the fridge or am I asking for trouble?
I can't tell what the back of the fridge is made of (or how thick)since it is covered with an aluminum foil (like wall paper). I'm nervous about screwing in a new location and hitting something important.
