How do you tie in solar charging into the existing charging system? Currently I have a mastervolt battery charger, engine alternator. The batteries (house, starter and windlass) are tied together with a xantrex battery monitor to regulate which battery gets priority and then topping off all batteries evenly.
I want to increase my house bank capacity and add solar charging. My concern is the tie in? Do I have to have the solar regulator on a separate switch so that it can not be active if on of the two other chargers (shore power or alternator) is active? Would a different battery monitor handle this?
