Solar location inside new Escape 21'

Look at the pictures on my post #2121 on the "It's Friday!" thread. There are three different things mounted just above the refrigerator. We have the solar package and I think one of them must be the solar controls and/or indicators. I have attached the picture with the best view of the controls here too. TimTex

They may have moved the solar. Also, we have the EMS monitor above the fridge.

Did you request the solar panel up there? Usually the closer to the battery it's located, the more accurate it is with a bit better performance.

Our solar monitor is near the batteries in the bench.

We find that the battery cells are low even though we picked up last month and we are trying to figure out how to get to all of them.

Controls

It is interesting that my 21' trailer to be pickup up 11 days from now has three control/monitor boxes above the fridge whereas Cmellon's 21' that he picked up yesterday has four. I wonder what the difference is? Maybe some of the functions combined, or my water heater switch is elsewhere? Also, what appears to be the tank level indicator (the one in the middle on my trailer) looks different. Hmm - we will find out soon. TimTex
