IMPORTANT: Please read GS-STAR-100W connection guide (included with product) before assembling kit.
1 Check your order to make sure that all parts are included:
- GS-STAR-100W Solar Panel
- 15-amp In-line MC4 Fuse
- MC4 Branch Connector Set
2 Mount the new solar panel (1) so that it is facing due South at approximately the same angle as your latitude. The ideal area has full sun and no shading. If the following connections are made during daylight, cover all panels with cardboard, cloth, or a similar opaque material so that all the panels do not put out power.
3 Connect the In-line MC4 Fuse (2) to the positive lead of the new solar panel (1). Disconnect the MC4 connections of the original panel, and insert a Branch Connecter (3) into each of the resulting gaps to form a closed circuit with the new solar panel.
