with a photoman bracket I installed a new sequoia 150 amp alternator to charge it all.with 1 guage wire running thru a set of 100 amp breakers with a bussman fuse block where the CC used to be. also have an anderson connector mounted in an australian connector permanent mounted in front bumper this is for the 100 watt solar panel suitcase style I have on a 30 ft lead(no parking in sun) works perfectly. Plenty of juice on a 110 volt power strip. and a national luna relay to run it all. I didnt know about the blue sea set up yet.

How is your battery secured?

Is a pic of your inverter mounted possible?

No need to go through the trouble. I also have the Wit's End rear quarter panel insert with my Solar controller back there. I was just wondering if you installed it somewhere else.

Out of curiosity, what are you running with your inverter?

I've had a 400w in my console for 6 years and never really used it.

I'm considering working a 3000W into my system but it would be removable, primarily for home use should we lose power and need to keep multiple freezers running. Basically the truck would be a large portable Solar Generator. I've contemplated a 1000W onboard and a 2000W outboard plugged in via a big Anderson connector but I'm not sure if I need one onboard or not.

I have a 700watt PSW gopwer I use primarily for charging cameras vape batteries 18650s and I alos use it for charging up dewalt batteries. I recently went thru my wiring as I was getting low juice alarm of national luna dual monitor telling me that in about 12 hrs my whynter 45L fridge was outdoing my odyessy extreme 100AH group 31, and I found that for what ever reason when I first wired it up I had 2 100 amp trippable breakers when I only needed one, cleaned up the wiring even more and am testing now. so standby
