Months in the making . . .

This is my 4th solar install since 2006:

2006 - 240W solar (series), Solar Boost 2000E charge controller, Xantrex RS2000 inverter/charger
2009 - 760W solar (series-parallel), Xantrex XW-MPPT60-150 charge controller, Xantrex RS2000 inverter/charger
2012 - 735W solar (parallel), MidNite Classic 150 charge controller, Magnum MS2000 inverter charger
2022 (last year for 26% tax credit) - 1110W solar (series), Victron SmartSolar 150/70 charge controller, Victron MultiPlus II inverter/charger

Can't say enough about Victron equipment, especially the network monitoring capability, but the animated Touch 50 display takes the cake . . .

Victron is the bomb.

Nice system! How much storage do you have?

I did not buy the Victron inverter, PD lithium instead. But I have the Victron battery monitor and MPPT 100/30 solar controller with just 360 watts of panel. I added the Cerbo which is both Bluetooth and WiFi. I have a mifi in the RV. Kinda wish now that I had sprung for the Victron inverter/charger. But the Cerbo tells me a lot whether in the RV or not.
