Thankx to all for the info!


Damn. Even solar plug-n-play isn't as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. But I'm trying to get it as close as possible. I've contacted FWCJH asking if I should also provide plywood mount and quick connects for Victron stuff I've ordered, and what size if they don't. 


cken323: the info you passed on in "General" from the Victron manual is impossible, but thankx for sharing:


● Mount vertically on a non-flammable substrate, with the power terminals facing downwards. Observe a minimum clearance of 10 cm under and above the product for optimal cooling. FWC can't do this in our cramped quarters, and I don't blame'em.

● Mount close to the battery, but never directly above the battery (in order to prevent damage due to  gassing of the battery.

But I'm used to impractical lawyer-ese. Hell, even FWC doesn't comply.


BBQ when any of  you visit Jackson Hole!
