First off love the new cover plate and standoffs, very elegant solution I was going to do something similar with a piece of spare plexiglass myself. I'm mounting in the little area between the backseat and my drawers. One idea that would be awesome is to include some stickers for the outputs (will be using Blue Sea Systems 8214 stickers for now)


Here is my beta board to mock everything up to my drawers, will replacing the board to a matte one and adding a plate behind the Redarc BCDC charger.




I'm coming from an all in one battery box I built after many hours of research and then trial and error getting the connection right between the shunt and the redarc bcdc. I really wish this out when I built it 2 years ago.

This makes the connections plug and play, you really just need to buy the components and wire it up as instruction guide lists. The wiring guide is great letting you know exactly which cable goes to which slot and the recommended gauge (I highly recommend double checking a wiring gauge chart to what amp and length you should gauge your wires)


Notes
- Build quality is excellent the standoffs and components (even the midi fuses are high quality)
- Easy to read legends and labels on the PCB
- Installation was super simple just had to cut and strip some wires (painful to cutoff all my perfectly crimped lugs) but this a superior solution.

This is really a great solution for DIYers. Simple, adaptable, more options than a Blue Sea Safety Hub...genius really. That said, am I going to rip out everything I have done electrically over the last few years...no. But if I have to do it over again this would be purchase #1! Nicely done!

This would also be of great interest to those converting vans to RV's as well...just sayin...

Chris send over the plastic cover piece and new plastic standoffs and replacement mounting screws. It looks like replacement screws are a lil bit longer, the original ones only had a few treads into the plate.

It also came with replacement philips screws to replace the midi fuse t15 torx heads but I couldn't get them off with precision driver set, will have to see about getting a bit to loosen em up. But I don't plan on replacing to philips.

Really enjoying the plastic standoffs and the cover, it was a little scary working having it exposed.

I'm guessing this window has closed. I'm looking on adding 12 to 12 charger and redoing my wiring on my off road trailer this spring.

Yes, the giveaway closed a few weeks ago. The 10% off discount code is good through at least the end of the summer, put "t4r" in the notes field when filling in the order form and it'll be applied to all power distribution products on your order.

Pull test, this one failed at 85 ft-lbs. Most of my tests results were around 100 ft-lbs but this is the only one I recorded.



Rated current test of both an APDS and Egon DC Hub:
