Does anyone know the sizes of the knockout holes on the bottom of the EG4 6000XP?

Scrubbed the manual and can't find it in there - I have a unit that I can check, but it's not going to be until Monday that I am back in the office. Sorry for late response, missed the notification!
 
Did I miss something in the photo markup? I’m not sure if there is a different one you are referring to that I didn’t show in my markup.
@HighTechLab Opps my error I didn't include: I am looking for the size of the knockout on the left and right sides of the Inverter.
I am planning to get 2 each of the Inverters and connecting them with a straight PVC to run power wires from Inverter Combiner panel to a Loads Panel.
I am sorry for the confusion, my mind thinks faster that my hunt and pic typing.

No knockouts on the left and right sides of the inverters.
 
I received my new inverters today and the right side knock out is one 1.5" not two 3/4"
Yeah I heard somewhere they were going to be changing the knock outs a little bit to do things like aligning the holes for the battery with the terminals. Sounds like they changed some other knock outs as well.
 
I just got mine yesterday. Attaching pics of mine. You can see PV, 1 for Load/Grid/Gen which are the same, and ComIMG_6884.jpegIMG_6885.jpegIMG_6893.jpegIMG_6890.jpegIMG_6891.jpeg
 
Dumb question: is there any 1 post that has info like this for newbies end to end? Have I just not found it? This is why when I could afford it I just bought a Goal Zero 11 years ago - no fussing. Can’t afford it these days. Sorry for the whining.
 
For the updated enclosure do I have these sizes correct for what fittings I need to purchase ? Going with PVC conduit.

COM = 3/4"
BATT = 1 1/2"
GEN/GRID/LOAD = 1"
PV = 1 1/4"

All of which info?
Wire gauges NEC 310.16 (This is a link to an online version of the entirety of the 2023 NEC.)
Conduit Fill Charts (NEC Annex C.1,2,3,4,9)
Ohm's Law (You should understand this going in to any electrical work)
Knockout Sizes (NEMA Standardized)

Understanding code. Code has National, State, County, City.
You can find it all here. Building, electric, Fire, Refrigeration, whatever you want to read.

FilterGuy has a pinned post titled Resources for Beginners.
I made a post with a bunch of tips for getting started.
Jefferson Electric (Electric Pro Academy) has a whole series on basics.

Google can help quite a bit, as can other members of the forum. As usual, for larger decisions, you may want more than one guiding light.
