I like it George, Nice and Clean Like I Like IT!!!
I cant wait until I move to the house project and the end of the year. I'll get to do the Full Setup, Taking Notes!
Thank you for the kind words Paul this board has come a long long way..... i owe it to this great fourm its members...and my big buddy Dale.......
This in the upper loft area in the rear of the cabin yes? As the design I am using I will have a loft, however I plan on using the loft as a "Electric Station" for the house. As It will be upward and away from living space and I plan on closing mine in for the most part, sort of like a attic I suppose with some exposure. I worry about the sounds of the inverter(s), hence why I am considering closing it in all together. Also noticed the output of that inverter looks like your standard electrical cable found in a house. Solid?
Here is a silly question, Couldn't you have used just extension cord coming out from the inverter into a outlet. I know I done it, however just made sure the wire could handle what I wanted to put thru it. But I refer to wiring the house, would there be a reason not too? Or is the original Solid better to use in this case. What I am getting at is a few things, Cost is one, and replacement if needed. Wouldn't extension cords be cheaper and easier to replace as they are round and can be pulled threw / Fished threw easier?
Another question, lets say your in the front of the cabin. How loud is the inverter? Enough to be bothersome or is it just not enough to question?
Last but not least, I purchased one of those LED Meters that tell the voltage / Amperage. How accurate is yours? I am not really pleased with it as for example. Lets say its mid day noon, i'm getting the full 14 volts, I can see that pretty accurate. Its 8-7-8 sun is setting goes down to about 12.9 / 12.8. Pretty close when checked with a meter. But Lets say its 10 pm, I run a few lights so I know the voltage will drop. On the batteries themselves it may drop to say 12.5, but this unit will say 12.0 / 12.1. That's when I'm like...O no...go outside and get out my meter to check the battery bank...Think I wasted my money on that. There is two dials one for amps / one for volts on the rear of this unit. No real instructions other than what I posted one time, Is there a certain procedure for setting these correctly? And if so can you assist me with that?
Sorry for all the questions, but trying to get the best solution to things before I get in over my head.

yes this rear of cabin above bathroom... its closed in not so much for the noise....its to keep the weekend renters out of there .as all of the electrical is in there as well as some other things i need to keep the cabin running smoother ...its off limits to renters...the whole cabin is set up to run on 12 volt....tv..water...fans....lights...thermal electric cooler... i put 3 ac 120 wall outlets in for a convenience...laptops mostly ...inveter really does not make any noise because there is rarely any load put on it hence the fans dont kick on
as to the extension cord question..yes i guess you could wire a building like that if you wanted..i felt that to hard wire a wall 12-2 with ground would be safer...all the lighting 15 lights and 12 volt outlets 4 i used 12-2 braided i took no chances .on this
yes these meters are always off a little..... all of my boards have mppt's and i read the meters on them if i need to know exactly what my bank is holding those meters are like a quick view thing for me....
hope this helps you....George
this looks very nice. hey bud.. what kind of box did u use for the cutoff switch?
just a quad box from lowes is all it is
