Hi Randall: Does sound like a bit of over charg at 14.4V. How many amp hrs are your bats and what typ of bat are they. I use gel cells and have been told by the people at blue sky charge controllers to charge to 13.8 no higher. I really doubt you panal of 11 watts is too big, but that it is not being charge controlled well. The blue sky controller also optimises the out put to charge more quickly, but it takes 10 ga wires to get enough amps to activate that feature with my two 40 watt panels. a simple charge controll er should make your expensive bats live longer. thanks again for the heater connection pics!
