…Added another 200w PV solar panel.

The aft array of two 200 watt (each) solar panels was getting shaded by the radar too often. So, today I installed a third. The AWG 10 wire was enough to accommodate the extra flow and the Solar Controller (150 volts in / 35 Amps out) could easily handle it (new config: 3x 19 vdc = 57 vdc / 13 A).

Here you can see the large shadow that is cast on the panels from the radar, this is why we had to add a third panel to the array.
