BFRTECH, here's the diagram. Everything goes to one side of the shunt, except one little wire. I just got mine done last week, with a battery box from Harbor Freight. I'm loving it so far. Only reason to plug in is for A/C.

First, thank you for sharing your experience! Very valuable!! We have a Sunseeker 2690 (wiring area somehow similar to yours!) and I believe we have same interior colors.

How's the solar system treating you? In a regular sunny day how many amps is it able to put in the batteries? Do you manage to keep them fully charged?

As for the conduit for the visible wires, did you get it online?

thx!

It is treating me rather well! I rarely need to run the genny when dry camping, usually just for the Micro. Adding a 3rd panel for cloudy days!

The conduit I grabbed from a NAPA auto store - seemed to work perfectly.

Slimjc, were you able to hide the cables from under the cabinet to panel?. How many panels and watts?

Yes, I will snap a photo later today when I have a chance. I used a cable management system and cut it to fit - it has a sticky back to one of the pieces. I used mineral spirits to clean up the "sticking" area. I feared it might pull off the wall paper - but after 9 months there is no sign of the paper coming from the wall. I was about to use wall screws to secure it - but the stick em worked very well.
