    All connected and apparently working, although with no indication of what's going in it's hard to tell without running everything to see if it's charging with the engine off. Now all I need to sort out a solar powered engine, rainwater collection and composting toilet and I can stay out for months:BigGrin:

    solar

    hi i have just had solar fitted to a hymer and if you use the correct regulator the panel above the door should tell you how much is going into your batteries. it also charges the engine battery when leisure is full

    Always satisfying to do a job yourself, and you it is done right.
    Plus you have saved a few quid.

    Quick test...
    On the regulator, use a multimeter on the feed coming from the dish..
    You should have 20v dc plus. so you will know panel is working.
    On the output side of the regulator to the battery, if it's charging then look for high 12v or even 13v dc that showns the regulator is charging the battery..

    Bon Voyage..

    I'll wave as we fly over on Tuesday... :thumb:
