Awesome! Considering that in the wintertime you will have less sun available and you were able to stay fully charged, this is good.

Was the limited sun due to shading? And do you have a monitor so you can see how much output you are getting throughout the day?

Yes it is cuz of shade
Yes I have a digital 30 amp charge controller by Coleman
Gives me an amp and battery status
Took generator to be on the safe side but never needed to use it.
In the morning on the 4th day battery is at 12 point 8 volts.
Did not use a TV but I did use the interior lights ,water pump, heater.
