Tri-Metric 2025-RV install

I know several have posted their installs. Mine is by far not the most finished install, however I wanted to get out to everyone just how simple this install really is and can be such a great benefit. Your total cost for this project including the monitor, 500 amp shunt, 1 amp in-line fuse & wiring should be in the neighborhood of $210.00.

Rustic Eagle has some great pics of a very clean install with an exterior box to house his shunt. I've seen many installations where folks actually mounted their shunt in the battery boxes. In the end I had seen quite a few pictures with complete solar system set ups that included the shunt, inverter and/or charger as well as the solar panel charge controller. These components were all located in proximity to each other as close to the battery bank as possible. This is the install configuration I decided I would like to perform.

My meter is only step one. I hope to install my new inverter/charger within the next few weeks and so my current shunt install is temporarily in place where I plan to mount the other components after I've reinforced the wall with additional support.

If you've been hesitating on installing one of these meters DON'T. They are quite easy to do and really puts you at piece of mind with knowing exactly where your battery charge status is at.

Have fun & camp more!

See album link below with pictures and step by step explanations (forgive the order of the pictures, I can't figure out how to arrange the photos.)

Big Sky,

Nice Tri-Metric installation....., and keep us up-dated as you proceed with the installation of your inverter/charger because I'm sure others will be interested on the wiring requirements of this product.
