Newbe having fun with Solar.
This is the start of probably many very basis newbe questions, please bear with me.
I am starting out with 4) 6volt golf cart batteries, tying them in series and then in parallel for a 12 volt system. Due to space I need to stack them two over two on shelving which leads me to my question.
I have read in a few documents including the Users Manual that came with my Charge Controller that my wiring for the Charge Controller to the batteries should be no longer than 2 feet round trip, to me that would be 1 foot of wire for each pos and neg.
Questions: Is this correct???
Seem impossible to string a bank of batteries together especial when you have rows of batteries stacked to maintain a 2 foot round trip of wiring from the Charge Controller to the battery bank and mount your Charge Controller in a practical location.
Question: Can I use larger gauge wire so I can lengthen the feed from the Controller to the batteries???
