Choosing a Location to Install GP-PWM-30-UL
The GP-PWM-30-UL is designed to be mounted flush against a wall, out of the way but easily visible.
The GP-PWM-30-UL should be:
- Mounted as close to battery bank 1 as possible
- Mounted on a vertical surface to optimize cooling of the unit
- Indoors, protected from the weather
In an RV, the most common controller location is above the refrigerator. The wire from the solar array most commonly enters the RV through the fridge vent on the roof or by using the Go Power! Cable Entry Plate (sold separately) that allows installers to run wires through any part of the roof. PV connections should connect directly to the controller. Positive and negative battery connections must connect directly from the controller to the batteries. Use of a positive or negative distribution bus is allowed between the controller and battery as long as it is properly sized, electrically safe and an adequate wire size is maintained.
