Haven't fully digested your tale of woe but are you saying your trying to power the van fridge on 12v and hoping the solar panel will maintain the battery 12v?

It won't work. The fridge will take about 20 amps and the solar panel might just put back 4 amps. That will result in a dead battery within a few hours.
The fridge needs to be on gas when not travelling.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.
