Looks good and Agreed with Jordi above I love seeing these too. I have been working on mine for a long while and completely have overkilled it. I realized that as I started finishing up some wiring. I have had an hard time fitting everything in and getting it wired.

Yes, packaging is often one of the bigger challenges. I started it over Labor Day weekend and delivered it to my son the following weekend, so I didn't have a lot of time to redo, redo, and make it better. It worked out fairly well. He wanted something for emergency power. Next visit I plan to mount a Tracer 40a charger inside the lid. Not ideal but it doesn't need to stay wired up (XT90 already pigtailed on the 12v bus) because he would only charge with solar on a prolonged power outage.

Looks great. With this setup can you charge and run the inverter at the same time, or do you always need to disconnect the charger when turning the inverter on?
