I just replaced the two panels on my 98 Rhodes. Since I was just replacing panels I did not worry with the regulator, I just assumed it was fine (could be a mistake, but it won't be my first). I ordered these panels..... BSP1012-LSS..... Seemed like a perfect match to the old ones.

My first post - often a lurker, never a poster.

I'm thinking of getting a solar charger to use for keeping my deep-cycle battery topped off.  Does anyone have any advance on a brand, features, source, etc.?  And how does one run the leads down to where the battery sits, under the v-berth cushions?  It would seem that the wires could get crimped or could allow moisture to travel along them.
