DC-DC, inverter, aux battery and solar panels are wired in!




First charge on the new build, bringing in just over 15A from the panels

Added a panel for the battery disconnect, this is permanently mounted to the platform and drawers.




Battery box, no hinges or other hardware yet. Seems to stay in place pretty good on its own but will get something added before taking it off road.




Just about done with this project for now... only things left are to extend the start battery cables a bit (the previous install left them a little short), do some final wire runs to switched equipment like my USB chargers and clean up that rats nest of wires. The APDS makes it super easy to connect and disconnect equipment so I went ahead and plugged most stuff up for the moment, just need to trim to length when I do the final cable management.

Got Starlink set up in bypass mode with the Peplink MAX BR1 router. The app still works but took some configuration on the router to set up. Thankfully this post had everything I needed to configure a static route: MAX BR1 MK2 + Starlink App Sleep Schedule not available - #2 by Jonathan_Pitts - Pepwave MAX - Peplink Community

starlink wan set mgmt ip to 192.168.100.100
Local DNS Records dishy.starlink.com -> 192.168.100.1
add two outbound rules
enforced to wan ip 192.168.100.1
enforced to wan domain dishy.starlink.com



Dishy Dualie seems to reduce power consumption significantly. With the Starlink router and my inverter it was running about 5-6A idle and 10-12A when active. With the POE injector I'm seeing 3-3.5A at idle and 6-7A when active, huge improvement for sure



Rigged up these quickie side panels to get some mounting locations for switches and other items. Obviously this is a bit of a hack job. I have another side project that will remove the need for these switches altogether so making something that needs to last for more than a few weeks wasn't really a goal with these.




Labeled and properly fused now. I mounted this up high because the fridge will only have a few inches clearance in front of the APDS.

Went for a drive last night to check for squeaks and rattles. The sunset was amazing and the ride was dead quiet, super happy with how this turned out so far.





Got the fridge back in this morning. Very tight fit but its easy to loosen the tie downs and move the fridge if I need access.
