480 Watt Premium Quality RV Solar Kit
Complete system with 1000W Pure Sine Wave inverter / 50a charger. Includes inverter accessories and trimetric wiring harness. An excellent RV / Off Grid system for years of safe dependable and continuous power.
With New Cutting Edge Bogart Technology. Tandem 30a Charge Controller & Trimetric System Monitor
This is an example of a perfect installation with these components. On the right is a Magnum MMS1012 inverter charger that is fed from a 20 amp circuit breaker on the AC side and then feeds out to AC receptacle circuits. The Magnum has a built in 15 amp output breaker, so you don’t need to add one. On the DC side you can see the 200 amp ANL DC fuse.
Probably the smartest RV PWM solar charge controller ever made
It uses the Trimetric 2030 smart meter for the brain to tell it what to do. The 480W system is a great match with 1-2 pairs of Golf Cart batteries. We recommend setting the SC2030 for 14.8V plus temperature compensation and the high voltage limit at 15.6V for most flooded batteries.
For settings for different types and brands of batteries see the Bogart charge parameter calculator here

When it senses shore power or a generator, the MS1020 charges batteries at a continuous output of 50ADC
Kit includes items below
The Trimetric knows the exact status of the battery charge state because it's tracking everything in and out. It controls and customizes the charging parameters of the SC-2030 for maximum efficiency and to obtain a greater state of charge.
The SC-2030 is a superior solar controller that uses temperature sensing to follow the recommended charging procedures specified by battery companies. Many if not most charger controllers being sold charge at voltages lower than recommended even without temp sensing, which results in gradual steady loss of battery capacity. Several companies recommend voltages occasionally to be as high as 16.3 volts at low temperatures when batteries are at 32 degrees F.

SC2030 Controller NOTE:
Assembled, the solar in and battery out lugs are exposed.
To make the temperature sensor or communications connections, which are on the back of the TRIMETRIC board, the end user needs to drill holes in the housing. (The Trimetric 2030RV housing does not have any holes either)
You can drill the entrance holes where they would be best for your particular setup.
Easily install your system professionally and safely
