Finally decided to drill some holes! As suspected there is a lot of material to anchor into (1/4”). I matched up one hole to an existing rivet and then drilled the additional hole. Used 5/16 plus-nuts for solid mounting points. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ #m1010 #cucv

Plugging away at some wiring. Circuit breaker and solar charge controller installed. Wires are run up to the rack but need to be secured. Rack hopefully installed for a while. Hopefully some panels soon... didn’t feel like doing them with the sun beating down and 90 degrees. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ #m1010 #cucv

Been working on the erector set on the roof! A bit of a challenge getting all the hardware installed on the bottom side of the panels, but all secure now. Still some wires to secure but we’re starting to function. A little testing on two panels (15.6a) and then with the engine running (41.63a). πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ #m1010 #cucv

Good looking OpPanel. Seems to give you all you need to know.
Goofy question: Did you buy individual components or something in kit form?

Thanks! The two screen shots are from the Victron app and the BMS app. I didn't buy a kit, it's all been individually sourced. I built the house LifePo4 battery myself and finally getting all the components together.

Finally back at some woodworking, making some door panels for the cabinets. I think I’ve finally found a latch for them that I like. It has a detent to hold them in place opened or closed. More holes to drill and Waterlox them. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ #m1010 #cucv

Finally getting around to an update. Cabinet doors have been sanded, tack ragged, and received 3 coats of Waterlox on both sides. Been working on a door stop for them to keep them from rattling and currently waiting on some parts. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ #m1010 #cucv

A little shakedown in the campulance a couple weeks ago!
Looks like an excellent event:

- Perfect venue (out in the rolling hill country)

- Perfect weather

- And loving that perfect teepee fire...

Who'd you book for entertainment, were Stones (Mick and the Boys -1), were they available??!!
