Did you install your multiplus. Any advice for me.
yes, i did the install for the Multiplus and the rest of my solar system. The Multiples install was pretty straight forward. The hardest part was finding a location for the beast. I have a 19 321 RSTS and elected to install in the basement storage area next to the battery cut off switch.. I enclosed the the Multiplus in a vented cabinet i put together with 1/4" fiberboard. I also installed a forward 50 Amp breaker (highly recommended) next to the low point drain valve in the basement. The shore power re-routed from the main panel reaches this location nicely. From that breaker it went in and out of the Multiples then back to the main breaker. Collectively i now have two 50 amp breakers, ingoing and outgoing. I routed all new 6 gauge wire to and from the Multiplus in flexible electerical conduit. The remaining of my solar and 6 Lithiums are in the front compartment, which i currently power with 4 205 Watt Panels installed on the roof, getting ready to add two more. You will love the Multiples 2 as it will easily power your whole 50 Amp panel off inverter or Generator. I can run one AC for about 3 hours if i choose to. The Auto transfer in the unit is very quick, When i shut down the generator to feed off inverter power you don't notice the transfer. Below are a few pictures. If you need help with anything when you get started on install, feel free to reach out.. Good luck
P.S. Battleborn sells all the Victrton stuff, they have a sale going on on the Mulipluss 2 and i head they may have a better sale for Independence Holiday..
