Ahh, the sweetness of having the power flow is awesome.
Seems the switch on the combiner was installed wrong. Each pair of panels is coming in at 85-86 volts, and all 5 strings are flowing into the Outback to the batteries.

I removed the 12 volt batteries, controller, and panel from the system, and installed a 48v to 12v converter in it's place. I'll move the 12 volt system to the shed for a light.
