    Absolutely LOVE your series. I can't wait to start my own build, with a different case (gotta cut some of the cost, lol). There's one thing that is just a little confusing. When you cut the +wire from the CC to the fuse box, why don't you just replace with a longer wire? Does the -wire just go to the round connector?

    i built my solar system off of your videos, i am having a problem though. my charge controller doesn't light up unless i have it plugged into electric. my battery seems to be charging though. also my renoloy box stays green for type of battery, red on battery and flashing green on the 3rd light. sometimes the power button on the inverter turns red instead of blue. any idea what i need to do. i am only trying to run a sump pump when i am out of town. Everything else works, lights plugs,etc. thanks.

    Did you consider adding some temperature control or fans for using the generator in high heat conditions. I didn't notice any air vents in the box for the inverter. I would assume a 2000w inverter can heat up pretty fast. I also heard that if the box heats up then your battery won't run efficiently.

    Assembling my parts list–great editing and narrating, by the way; thanks for taking the time. Have you seen a need for a master battery switch, or have the individual switches proven sufficient?

    so if you are not using it for a period of time you could use a push to make switch internally to connect the controller to check the battery ststus. Then you can decide to charge or store the unit again. saves getting your multimeter out everytime. ✌

    Great thinking on the controller disconnect. I was wondering why you didnt use a more standard connection for the panels, (mc4 or Anderson), and still think you probably should have, but that auto disconnect feature you get with your connector is pretty cool.
