PT, Correct, the little guys will maintain a charge but not much else. My first attempt was a felexable panel I got at West Marine, worked ok on my Walmart Marine deep cycle, but that was just for lighting. Bigger batteries and what you are using requires bigger panel. I now have two Trojan SCS 225 true deep cycle batteries and I have a much larger panel, of course it takes me 2 or 3 days to drain my batteries to 80%. In Sparks, Nv at Standard Batteries you can get the SCS 225 for $90.00. Of course I now have POWER, probably more than I need, I will be installing XM radio this week (100 channels and TWC) in my poptop camper, email me if you would like and I will tell you what know.
