Finally got the fish-tape up through the hulls

Recommended Posts

Finally got the fish tape up through the hulls and mounted the battery monitor properly.

 

Next, upgrading solar charger 100/50 and Color GX display.</p>

Lol, once you start adding Victron kit it’s impossible to stop.  Start saving for the MultiPlus.

 

I probably would have left it in the hull but your install looks nice. Are you going to put the display where the Zamp controller is?  I guess you’re going to need a cover plate of some sort - any ideas what you’re going to use?

Overland, that is what I have been thinking about all morning. The Color GX display is 7 mm narrower than the Zamp controller. So not sure, any ideas? Probably a cover plate of some sort or possibly just white caulk 3-4 mm each side is not that much. BTW, the additional solar panels are making quite a bit of difference (33% more amperage)! Wow, very happy.

 

Oh, and the only reason I moved it up top is so that it is easier to connect the VE.direct cables to the Color GX from the solar controller and battery monitor.

So,did run the fish tape up through the street side rear corner or did you find a route near the pantry?

Mid-ship right along beside the solar wire (adjacent to the pantry)... straight shot. No drilling.

There are marine supply places that will do custom plates, or maybe a local sign shop could match what's already in the trailer.  I can't remember if my display came with a plate for a larger opening - it may have.  I think it was ScubaRX who made some custom switch plates for his trailer - I know someone did.
