OK. I have a question. I was playing with the camper today and the new solar system and discovered a possible issue. No matter where I move the panel or what I cover the panel with the controller never reads below .4 amps. Is this normal? I would figure that if I covered the panel it should read 0 amps on the controller. With the sun on the panel it seems to operate normally. Amps are jumping around a little (between 3 to 5+) which I think is normal but when its covered, it goes down to .4 amps and doesn’t move.
Yesterday I was surprised that under my Rv storage roof it was still reading positive amps but now I’m wondering if that was part of this issue.
