Well I got tired of trying to squeeeeeeeze into the front storage compartment to work on the SOLAR/BATTERY electronics. So I decided that since I was going to rewire/upgrade the wiring (for 2 or 3 more solar panels and at least 2 more batteries) I would redesign how I access the equipment. I mounted everything (except the inverter) on a hinged board. When we are traveling, it swings flat against the front of the trailer and when I want to work on it, I can swing it 90 degrees away from the front and it gives me EASY access to everything. The 1500 watt inverter is just to the right of the panel, but not shown in the picture.
I still need to wire the current shunt resistors into the micro-controller and digital meters. There will be 4 current shunt resistors:
(1) main battery (charge/discharge)
(2) TT loads
(3) TV charging status.
(4) Solar Charge Controller output
Everything will be accessed via a tablet, smart phone or the television via the TT's Wi-Fi Router, while driving/camping.
Here are a few pictures of the project... I already have a few changes that I want to make, but that is for another time.
