I added the second component. 1 more that is just an idiot light.

At this point, in next pic I guess I will power it up so it demonstrates what I am doing.

I chose to surface mount the Battery-Solar Voltage/ Current/ Capacity meter. I am still waiting on two other components.

The seller of the batteries pictured previously, seems to think because he bought lithium batteries that his deep cycle floodeds are worth the price of new. So I will just work these for now.

Okay I abandoned the idea of harvesting solar for 110 V @ 6 amps. Looks like solar is limited to battery storage. So I need somewhere to store the solar power and rewire the inverter to switch between genny to battery bank. Like a transfer switch.

I bought this monitor and several LED type, One is a round gauge style digital readout with analog type led. The other two are programmable tri color LED. The purpose is monitor batteries in a RV Solar system. I will try and snag pics to post.

P.S. if you wish to comment just message me.
