The panel was fitted on the 12th March 2013 and after a couple of hours out in the winter sun the battery volts were reading 14.3V later that day at 1600 the volts were reading 13.4V very happy so far with the results. I now hope that worrying about there being enough power for the mover, which we have to use in storage, is now a thing of the past. Also, when using Sites without Electric Hook Up that the battery will be kept topped up.
