I’m looking into some similar options. I already have 2 100 w panels in place, along with 2 6V Harris AGM batteries, but lately, I have been experiencing some weird things. My solar controller has been giving me some weird battery level readings, and my batteries have been running down very quickly, even though they are only 1 year old. Recently, they went from 30% to 0% in about an hour, while we were away from the camper, with nothing cut on.

I am looking at installing the Vicktron battery monitor, as well as a MPPT controller. Both are bluetooth ready, and hopefully will allow me to monitor my draws and see what might be killing these batteries so quickly.
