Solar panels
 
I have a cabin in maine. I am using 3 marine batteries and a 200 watt converter. I just purchased a solar panel kit. I would like to install this kit on the roof.
how should i hook up the batteries?
Do all the batteries get charged after one another or all at one time/
I would like to run a tv dvd player and some lights (100 watts)what is the best way to get the power i need on a consistent basis and keeping it there. I am a novice but am trying to understand the basics on solar.

You will need to install a Charge Controller between the solar array and your batteries.
