Nice work, Vic.

One suggestion for your first post: Add a sentence or two to explain exactly why a fuse or circuit breaker is needed at each end of the main battery charging positive cable. That is, what is the failure mode or modes you are protecting against, and what are the failure effects if no circuit protection is installed at either of your recommended locations. This will make people less likely to second guess your good recommendations. I had to explain this to a neighbor who wired his trailer with a fuse at only the truck end. “Why do I need two fuses in series?” He stopped arguing quickly when I pointed out what could happen.

Done.  Thanks for the suggestion!
