Looking for experience.

I’ve got a solar array and I’ve been using a xantrex c35 charge controller and after about 3 months of use the circuit board has rusted pretty bad and is no longer charging properly.

The number of places that I have to mount the thing is severely limited due to my set up.

The question is do you know of a more weather resistant unit or has anybody had any similar problems?

I’m thinking of changing to a unit from harbor freight

which in theory feels like I’m taking a step back, however if its sealed from the weather better then I think it would be worth the trade off.

Any opinions?
