Totally new to solar, but I picked up a 50W panel and a Renogy Wandered 10A controller. I'm planning to use the panel in a portable setup (not mounted to the trailer). Now I'm trying to figure out the wiring and where to put the controller, but getting a little lost. I have a 2003 Coleman Carmel popup, with a battery by the hitch and a converter at the back. The options I've thought about are: Put controller near the battery (inside or outside with weatherproofing box). Wires from the battery to controller, panel to controller. Optionally take the wires currently going to the battery (to the converter) and hook them to the 'load' terminals on the controller. Put controller near the converter. I haven't had a chance to look at my converter wiring yet, but I'm assuming there's a wire going directly from the battery to the converter right now. Take that off the converter and hook it to the battery terminals on the controller. Then add wires from the controller's 'load' terminals to the converter. Then wires to the panels. Put controller on the back of the solar panel. Seems the easiest, but the controller manual warns that I need to connect to the battery before the panel. So I'd have to be sure to disconnect one of the wires from the controller to the panel, connect to the battery, and then reconnect the wire from the controller to panel. Plus weatherproof the controller. Or are there better options I'm not thinking of? I've spent several hours trying to figure this out, but getting lost. So thought I'd just ask! Also, do I need to disconnect the controller from the battery when driving or when connected to AC power? Thanks, in advance, for your advice to this solar newbie!
