Thanks Steve!

Thanks Mike! Do you mean the charge controller or the battery monitor? For the battery monitor, I used the plastic mounting box that came with the RV version of the Trimetric. I could have discarded that and screwed the unit directly to the wood panel, but I wanted the protection and the strain relief that the box provided. I may eventually add some spacers to get it deeper in the hole and closer to flush. As for the charge controller itself, it wanted to be as close to the batteries as possible and that space opposite the fresh tank is where I landed. Installing the charge controller and making room for the 2 batteries were the most challenging part of the installation. – Joel
