    Something I built DIY back in 2000 - my path from Trace to Xantrex to XW Pro inverters

    I'm going to put my modules in a little cinder block/concrete bunker like a pump house and just put in lots of parallel 4/0 to the power house, it's a lot easier to buy lots of 4/0 or some copper bars between the two than a new house. Something that even if it blew like that video, everything...

    yea yea yea..... lol... my freak out was about the lack of response/support, not the number written down in the change log. 🤪 You're very welcome, regardless what caused it, it's an eye opener for sure.... don't see many blow the roof off like that one did. PS, Alpha tester, with the issue you...

    Yes if you zoom in you can see the white nose of the cowling and the ski's, it's facing forward towards us. This is up in Kamloops, BC where I use to live, a sled (as us Canadians call them) in your back yard is more common than a second bathroom in your house.

    Why my modules are going in an outside cement bunker, especially with the firmware issues we chatted about with the Jack in the Box recently... https://diysolarforum.com/threads/she-went-bang-real-good-whew.49857/

    Yea agree, looked more like a small bbq propane tank in their blowing than a bunch of lithium cells venting, at least at the end.

    Why do you need to use this holder when you had one you melted, I'm confused.

    I’m pretty sure fires and denied insurance claims come into play at least once in that process 😉

    I'm not sure I'd use a high voltage fuse for what really is a low voltage system, that fuse he used is for the full pack, .... scratch that, I just realized he IS using the full pack... no wait, he's not at 600volts, he's at 48 but using the full pack for parallel so yea, he should be running a...

    I thought we were suppose to install like that as the thread/bolts on each end acted as a pre-fuse. ;) At the 7:30 time stamp, Thomas Massie discusses he had the fuse mounted right on the battery and had to move it and put in a larger one from the car... I'm not sure why we buy those fuses/fuse...
