Solar panels
« on: November 09, 2019, 04:28:48 AM »
I have two on the roof.  The build sheet said it’s an add On option with controller.  Can anyone tell me where the controls are for these panels ?  Can’t find anything that activates those panels.  Automatic?

In our coach - which is a few years older - the controller is hung on the rear vertical wall, on the coach's curbside, behind the basement door where the waste tanks are located.  This would be behind the basement door immediately fore of the passenger side dual axle.  This basement door on our coach does not have an opening handle and lock.  It has a pair of latches located under the coach which hook onto the bottom of the door to hold it tightly closed.

Richard,
The solar control is automatic if hooked up correctly.

That’s what the dealer said, but I wasn’t sure they knew everything Beaver since they mostly sold Prevost and Newel etc.  thanks again.  Truly pleased I joined the club!
