Dual Solar Controllers


I have a Jayco van with a Coast to Coast TPS555 solar charge regulator and  two 120w solar panels on the roof feeding two 110amp AGM batteries.

I also have a 120w portable panel I connect to a Redarc BC-DC charger. The regulator on the panel has been bypassed.

Will using two regulators like this have any negative effect on each other?

 Hi Gus.

Short answer no problems they will work ok. Not perfect when getting up to fully charged but batteries almost charged by then.
