    Amazing length of time walking after a 2300V arc flash

    Be careful out there... this is an amazing video, non graphic but listen to what happened as he walked away from the 2300V arc flash, he thought he was on 480V.... walked away leaving bits of himself along the way.. crazy.

    What would you do, 43' toy hauler, Schneider, Victron, Sol-Ark, dual 3K M, 15K Q or 12K Sol-Ark.

    So..... in my box of toys I have a complete Schneider CSW4048 system for 48VDC, have the SCP, the over priced battery monitor, the gateway, the matching charge controller etc... bought it because I was told I could stack them and was going to put two in parallel. They have removed that feature...

    Source wanted, Trina 600 watt panels, Las Vegas area if possible (may consider other manufacturer).

    Has anyone in NW Arizona or the Vegas area found a local source for the Trina 600 or 500 watt panels, I want to pick them up myself rather than ship.... May consider other manufacturer of similar wattage, doing a 43' toy hauler and want max wattage per square foot. Thanks Jen
