I'm curious about your addition of a second solar panel. We're having a 21 built and are planning on just one. We're planning to go full time. Should we have two installed?
Yes, I saw the thread you started about getting two panels. I think it's worth asking ETI about. Instead of doing things piecemeal as I did, I recommend either having ETI install both panels or have the entire solar power system installed by someone else. If you intend to spend winters in your RV, you might find one panel is inadequate to keep the batteries charged when the sun is low in the sky and you're running the furnace a lot.
