Good morning Colin,

Thanks for the reply.

Hi AlexandreWe have 2 x
260w solar panels mounted on one of Riza's new Amel
Davits which run in series through a Tracer 4215BN MPPT
controller with MT50 display. This gives us between 5amps to
max 20amps (normally over 10amps) charge at approx 27.7volts
for much of daylight hours. What a difference it has made
and now our last job is to find suitable LED globes for all
internal lights and deck level Nav lights. Masthead is
already
LED.CheersColin

Interesting how many times

someone posts an item here just when we have a similar

issue. After running our fridge and two underbunk
freezers

for 2 months on shore power, and being so happy with our
new

solar system, we decided to trial leaving all three units
on

for a few weeks with the boat charger unplugged as it

appeared we had far more energy coming in from the sun
than

was required. This was all fine and batteries remained
100%

for a week or so, but  then after a spell of four
really

rainy days with absolutely no sun I returned and found
the

one of the under bunk freezers no longer at freezer
temp.



My

immediate thought was that the compressor had gone but
now

after Kent's post re shutting down with lower voltage
I

will check that possibility first.

How cold does your freezer get

?Our freezer with the thermostat set on

7 only gets to -14.5 deg C. Our ambient temperature is
about

30 deg C.My frig mechanic claims that

the frigomatic unit is borderline for the 80 litre
freezer

we have and suggests we replace it with a larger
compressor

and plate.....$1500....Interested to

hear others views on

thisCheersAlanElyseSM437
