Charge Controller Location

Where did anyone install their controller in adventurer 38J? I will be using Blue Sky 3000i. It is Approx. 4.5" by 6.5" and 2.2" deep, flush mount. I would love to put it in entrance wall left but looks like the Norcold is too close to wall.

You talking about the house battery converter/charger?
Try looking under the stove. Pull out the very bottom drawer all the way. The old one may be there, plenty of room to work with.

Well, install is done. I put the controller(Blue Sky 3000I mppt) just inside the door on the fridge wall. Also put the cut off switch for the panels there. With the panel wires run down the fridge vent and the batteries under the entrance steps, that put the added goodies directly in the path. 12 feet of wire from panels to controller and 6 feet from controller to batteries. So far so good.

I mounted my charge controller in the compartment with the water pump on my 2005 Voyage 38J.

Good spot but I wanted to be able to monitor from inside.

Do you have a battery monitor? I have a Trimetric battery monitor so I can see most of the controller functions on it.
