I thought id do a quick thread to show the install ive just finished, with lots of help from some knowledgeable people on this forum.
Big thanks to Kev n Liz, Peter ( lister Diesel ) and Lee (lgbzone) .
I first decided on the size that would fit on my roof without getting in the way of the rood box and the kayak holders.
I could have fitted a 120w panel, but the 100w gave a little more room. Now its fitted, im pleased with my choice. I run a 110amp hour battery.
Once working out the size, cable run and controller location it was time to order the parts.
Solar Panel purchased from Friendly Green Energy via ebay for £80
I order the recommended controller from a German source for the controller. £75
Then ordered some 6mm sq and cables from e bay £ 19.40 and decided on a split charger from CBE, the CSB2 for £24, some 50m Aluminium Angle £21 and some connectors and in line fuses. £4 for a range or sizes.
Once arrived i decided i needed some 4mm sq cable for the split charger and some bullet connectors to use as a slim line cable joint.
Got it up and running today, and it was producing 58w and between 3.3 and 4 amps. It didnt take long to top up the leisure battery and the split charger lit up and started on the vehicle battery. I was rather pleased.
The final image
The split charger, hidden under the passenger seat ( i have since tidied the wiring )
I drilled one of the panels for the cable to "appear"
Some of the cable running
For the split charger cables which run under the floor between the seats
And up through the triple gland.
And from the day before, drilling the side of the panel frame to bolt with stainless steel fixings onto the aluminium angles.
So thanks to those who helped, i am very pleased with myself.
( hopefully the dropbox links have worked, its my first time using it )
