Also fyi I attached a solar panel to the car roof. The sub wire as you said is 1/0 or 2/0, more than enough for 100 watts. This power wire comes directly from the battery fused with a 130 or 150 amp fuse. I also didn't claim to be an expert on anything, I read it from the manual u butthead
When you get into better inverters you can program them to shut down at specific voltages to prevent damaging your batteries ,they sometimes have built in battery chargers when there is a lack of solar ,they also can be programmed .the charge controller its main job is to charge the batteries as fast as possible without damaging them and maintenance charge for desulfication,the better charge controllers have many settings that can be changed for different types and brand of batteries , there are lots of info on Northern Arizona wind and Suns website, check it out!
