Looks like a very neat installation Rod, good to see those ‘fat’ cables!

Going to lithium are you planning on fitting a bigger inverter? With a 1000w unit you will only be able to use a VERY small toaster or VERY small electric jug & NOT together! But then you may only want to run a CPAP machine which that inverter will do with ease.

Sorry to rain on your parade.

All good and thanks for the good advice on the cable size 

I was very low cash 💰 

so a new 2600W inverter was out of the picture 

I had the 1000W Redarc in the shed from my old van

when I go lithium batteries I am thinking of 3x120 itech world batteries 

have you got any info on them 

good or bad

I am with Tony on the size of the inverter.  The beauty of lithium is the ability to use an electric kettle or coffee machine etc.  A 1000watt inverter will be very limiting.


I love being able to use the electric items while off grid, all powered free by the sun.
