Finished the battery install and add a charger

I finished wiring up my batteries, got the inverter wired up and installed a dedicated 75 amp charger for the batteries. here are the over all pictures.


Ok here is a description of the setup 4 6 volt US Battery 232 ah batteries wired in
series/parallel giving us 12 volts and 464 ah of power compared to the 160 ah we had before that needed recharged every day. Next is a on/off switch to cut all of the power, then a 250 amp T fuse, then the Boondocker BD-1275-C 4 stage charger that runs off shore power or a generator giving us 75 amps to charge the batteries up quicker.


Next is a positive distribution block which feeds to all of the 12 volt system and another on/off switch leading to a 80 amp breaker and my old 1000 watt inverter.


 Below the inverter is a negative distribution block and 500 amp shunt all of the grounds run off these two pieces.


The next projects to go along with the battery system will be venting the 2 battery boxes and installing a Trimetric TM-2030 RV battery monitor.
I would like to give my thanks and credit for this battery system idea to Ray at Love Your RV website IO followed his idea with only a few changes.
