Are your lights LED or incandescent? Incandescent can use a lot of power. So can a fridge/freezer. You have 520w of solar that will charge your batts at that rate on a clear day for a few hours, but with low sun or clouds the input to the system will be much less.

Maybe there is a fault in his wiring causing no charge. But maybe you are using more watt hours than the solar is capable of providing over a normal day.

You need to get familiar with the term watt hours on such a system.
