    Good point and agree shunt regs will a) work and b) clamp the voltage but in a practical application like the one discussed the panel output voltage should never rise to 13.9V.

    @MB

    I would grab a multi-meter and after about a week or so of not using the tractor (if it stays parked up that long) and when the panel is in full sun just check the battery terminal voltage.

    Pls excuse the snip.

    That is what the "blocking diode" is for, to prevent reverse current flow when the sun isn't shining.

    Also, a PWM Reg will reduce the effective rating of the panel by about...

    Alternator O/P won't matter as the Aux Battery will never ever charge at anywhere near 100amps, even flat to about 11.2 volts you would be lucky to get maybe 40 amps initially and quickly taper off...
