    Hi all.I have fitted a new charge controller to my van but the instructions are a bit vague.When it asked for battery capacity,do you put the total capacity of all IE both batteries.I have 2 X 80 AH gel batteries so do L put 160 when it asks??Sorry if it's a daft question but just want to be sure.Thanks.

    The MT2 is the model number of the remote meter. What is written on the controller? It should be something different
