This week i'm getting between 3.5 hrs to 5.5 hrs of float time so I should move forward now with the diversion project.
My plans after reading these posts are basically use Aux 2 on my Classic on Waste Not Hi, to switch a SSR to 2 x 48 volt 2,000 watt HWT elements on a 50 gal tank. My array is 3.6kw and the DC element can be reduced to 1,000 watts each if needed. I was thinking a MidNite DC breaker in there somewhere as well.
I think I just need to figure out whether or not to a) reduce elements to 1,000 watts each and b) whether to run one line, one breaker, one SSR to the elements or a separate line to each element.
Reading the other posts and the heat going thru the SSR's heat sinks, caution says run two, keeping the amps down? 2,000/60v=33 amps or 1,000/60v=16amps.....
Last thing was that the solar control room (inverter, batteries etc.) are 85 feet away from the HWT, does that need ant consideration in my Plans?
