I am designing a 6 100ahr battle born battery bank and 800w-1200w solar panel system for my 2017 35' motorhome.I understand that high voltage system is better as it requires smaller size cable and more efficient, smaller size charge controller, but I also would like the motor home alternator charge my batteries when I am driving (no a deal breaker but it is nice to have it) , Also the wires between the batteries ,bus bar & fuses are very close, so I do not see that much benefit on 24v battery bank system on my motorhome . Please let me know if I missed anything here.I am thinking about wire the solor panel at 24v and leave the battery bank at 12v use this MPPT charge controller:VICTRON ENERGY 30A SMARTSOLAR MPPT 100/30 CHARGE CONTROLLER W/ BLUETOOTHMaximum PV Open Circuit Voltage: 100VBattery Voltage: 12V/24V Auto SelectIt looks like I will be able to take the 24v or even 48v from solor panel and charge the 12v battery bank and take advantage of both 24v and 12v system, could anyone confirm that ?has anyone done this before?Also Battle born also sell the battery isolation manager, have anyone had any experience on this?Please advise.Thanks in advance.
I've been running 6 Trojan 105s off my solar system and original setup. They have been seriously discharged a few times but seem to be ok now. My question is this: how can I determine the life I can expect is remaining in this battery bank?
