I have received another fee quote for labour only

Install Roof Top Solar Panels x 4, Wire panels to Combiner box thru RV Roof & Seal
Wire to Controller
Wire to Meter
Wire to Safety switches & Batteries, Anchor system & Test

Subtotal: $1,850


INVERTER: Install Inverter, Shunt, Monitor & Temp Sensor, Chase Wires & Test

Subtotal: $1,400

Remove 12v Battery(s) & Install 300Ah Lithium battery, Set up BMS system

Subtotal: $500

Total: $3,750

This looks better than the first quote I received. Still based on your feedback, probably this is a high side of the pricing (unless they charge $200 / hour).

Thanks!

This is all just labor?

Hmmmmm ..... remove 12v Batteries .... My concern would be how is your RV's 12v system going to work with the new batteries. and as mentioned before. How are you going to isolate the components that need 12v when the RV is being towed?

And before I forget .....

Wow ..... if you include parts ..... you'd be looking at a price tag of 8-10K once its all done.

Kind Regards;

Yes, this is labor only. Actually, I am thinking about $10-12k price tag.

In relation to technical matters - I have no idea how does it work, I am planning to pay guys who know the stuff. I won't be a test pilot. Many people are using similar setups.

Seann, I have talked to Solar Mike and when time comes I think I will have him to install the setup. Thank you very much for suggesting him.
