Help a newbie with solar panel / battery questions!
Hi all. I have a 2014 Airstream Flying Cloud (19 feet). It has two lead acid batteries. I purchased a Zamp 120 Watt Portable Solar Charging System from my dealer. There are not many instructions that come with it. There is an online video on the zamp website which is pretty good. A few questions not covered:
1. how long roughly does it take to see some charge coming back to the battery...an hour...a half day, etc.
2. Also, the voltage on the meter of the zamp is a little different than the voltage inside the airstream. For example, the zamp reads 12.6 and the AS reads 12.0...does it matter?
3. Finally, I assume it is best to have the switch in the AS set to "store" instead of "use" when you are charging the battery with a solar panel. Any issue with using the electricity in the AS while you are charging (assuming you are boondocking with no electric hookup)?
