    Joining in series (to make 24 volt) or in parallel (to make a bigger 12 volt bank) ?

    Can't see it being an issue. There may be some interaction between the regulators (if each panel has one) but you shouldn't hurt anything (assuming you hook it up properly - hook it up wrong you will hurt stuff)

    Hi ScottyGC,

    If your only using these panels on those two batteries I think you would be better off running the open voltage from the 2 panels to a single regulator that is close to your batteries. If you use two regs they may fight each other and you won't get an efficient charge. What type of regulator are you running and how big are the panels?

    Cheers
