Battery Cable Wrap-Up

I chose a house bank electrical configuration and wrapped up the battery connections. This involved fabricating solid copper buss bars and small jumpers made from 2/0 battery cable. I also did the final routing of the house bank battery cables to the main battery box. This involved securing the cables to the bulkheads with the Weld-Mount System, my first experience with it. Very cool stuff, indeed. I will let the pictures speak...
Cable ends routed into the battery box.
Cables mounted behind fresh water PVC with Weld-Mount system.
Fuse and terminal panel with buss bars, jumpers and protective covers installed.
Next step from here... battery switches and distribution terminal strips.
