Autotrail Apache battery connection
Hi. Ive just ordered a couple of replacement leisure batteries today after much debate I went for the Varta LFD90. However, I believe the wiring on my motorhome may not the make best use of the power. I have attached a diagram of the current connection arrangements from the solar panel, to batteries to inverter.
If possible, can you please advise on the following:
Are the batteries connected properly to gain the best benefit from them? Would it be of benefit to remove the positive lead between battery No1 and the inverter and then connect from the positive terminal on battery No2 to positive terminal on the inverter?
The solar controller positive and negative feeds are connected to just battery No2. Would it be of benefit if the positive was connected to one battery and the negative to the other battery?
If you got this far well done and I look forward to your replies.
Thanks for your help
