Thanks Steve!

Yeah, as a matter of form I should have written that,
but someone else did - and you have affirmed it.

Depending upon the distance from the panels to the storage
one may choose to locate the inverter at the panels (if a
long distance to the batteries) while if close the inverter
would be near the batteries.  (Panel voltage, single or summed,
would play a role in that voltage-drop associated inverter-
placement decision.)

If the problem-case here involves a Harbor Freight system
then they will want to change-out the charge-controller/
inverter anyhow.
