I pondered that for awhile...but if I want to do this only once....and if I expand in the future, there may be a requirement to go series/parallel anyway. I'd rather only do the work once for the portion from the combiner box to the controller.

I have ordered the combiner box for the fridge vent, and rocker foot mounts from AM; and 6/2 marine cable and a bunch of other bits. I'll run down the fridge and through the under floor wire chases to the front. I'll install common power and ground studs in the electrical center for paralleling in the Zamp portable.
