No - you need to order a shunt kit - Am solar has a sweet set up with all connectors and 30 ft of wire for $86.00

No, you need to order it separetly. I ordered the 100 not the 500 as I have only 400w solar and like the ability to read amps at .01 instead of .1. Also the SOC % wont read corectly untill battery has reached 100% charge as determined by your inputs.

I mounted the shunt on a board with positive and negative battery terminals and a DC fuse box to wire the TM 2030 inside as well as a 12 volt charging station and future needs. I'm running a 4 inch waterproof junction box through the front of the trailer to keep the distance from the batteries to about 3 feet.
