    Thank you for correcting my Duh moment. Those batteries being 10 years old are probably sulfated to the point of no return.

    Stacked Panels with a slide out feature when parked.

    Thank you @12installs for your input. I don't want to pollute the topic too much, but the VOC is just over 48 volts so series is not a option for the controllers I have purchased.

    Santa and solar 😂

    Years ago a friend told me he could hear the relay open in a Trace C40 PWM CC on a cold winter night, with fresh snow on the ground, and a full moon. I scoffed, He insisted it was true.

    Stacked Panels with a slide out feature when parked.

    I am considering permanently mounting 4 390W panels on top of a 7' x 16' Cargo trailer and 6 additional 390W panels (3 on each side of the trailer) that are deployed using gas-springs. Here is a link to a simulator: https://www.gasspringsshop.com/gas-spring-calculator/. The side mounted panels...

    NEWS: New Midnite Solar DIY Series - SCC's & Inverters (great $ too)

    I'm glad this fact came out. The NEC (National Electric Code) is heavily influenced by the NFPA (National Fire Prevention Association). Fire and electrocution risks are probably higher off grid, especially DIY systems. I know my first system was.

    Trying to decide on wiring in parallel or series ?

    I was responding the last 6 words from the OPs reply. "if I wired everything in series" 24 volt array, 24 volt PWM SCC, 24 volt battery, 24 volt inverter. He just doubled the capacity of the system by adding 1 12 volt battery.

    That is your best option and gets a big thumbs up from me.

    Trying to decide on wiring in parallel or series ?

    Your PWM controller requires you to wire the panels in parallel with your 12 volt battery . I didn't read any specs that said this controller would step down the voltage from a series wired (24 volt) panel array to 12 volt.

    My system is mobile so I plan on using copper pipe pressed onto both ends of 2 or 3 layers of tinned ground strap to make the cell interconnects. @upnorthandpersonal did his cell interconnects this way.
