RE: 2016 ITASCA TRIBUTE 31C Solar Upgrade

Thanks eveyone for all the info. It helpful. The wiring I can handle. The brand of controller and brands for the Solar panels I know nothing about. I like having reviews but I not a big fan of reviews on the company website. When I see 150 like's and no one saying I have a issue or these are just SO/SO. I tend to have a raised eyebrow. Of the two controllers mentioned, what's the pro and cons for them. What made you go with one or the other? Outback Vs. Victron

Just make sure that your MPPT controller is configurable for Li batteries. It's my understanding that your new MPPT controller will need to be able to stay at 14.4 volts until the Li batteries are full. Then either the MPPT controller will shut off or the controller built into the batteries will stop the charge. You can't have too much solar. I like 24 volt panels. They are cheaper and allow smaller wire. Over size your MPPT controller, just incase you decide on more panels. RichardThank for you info on that. Was looking to do that. Glad it is that simple. Any reviews on MPPT controllers?

2016 ITASCA TRIBUTE 31C Solar Upgrade

I am looking to add solar to the RV. It have a Residential Refrigerator in it that being ran off 3 Lead acid battery's at 300ApH. These last about 8 to 12 hours at best. I am replacing them with two lithium battery's at 200aph and adding one more in a few months for 300aph total. I want to add solar but I'm not sure what I am needing. Since my system already has a 2000w inverter/charger in it that works with the generator and when driving. I do not want to over charge the new battery's. Do I only need to get a Controller and a few Panels plus wiring.? So is it as simple as running Solar Panels to a MPPT Charge Controllers directly to battery's. Is it really that simple? Am I overthinking it or am I missing something.? Thanks for the help.
