I try to get more info, specialy mounting pictures of the solar panels that you have on MF795. Will mount a panel of 160W, not flex or something. Since I have 2 batt (each 100Ah), one for start, bow and winch, second for accessories. We need more autonomy to use refrigerator, navi, lights, toilet. Now it last less then a day. There is also an open option to get third batt. Does anyone practice the charging with motor on? Maybe I need to change the existing batt charger, which has only 14A of charging capacity, since the motor can give 50+A?

Hi Primoz, did you make any progress on this ? as i have a similar issue. I have 3 batteries, one for the bow thruster, one engine battery and a service one. As we tend to anchor up for for periods of over 24 hours when fishing, our service one has flattened in the past. We are getting a diesel heater installed next week and subsequently asked about an extra battery as it will use power too. He didnt think it was required, im not convinced
