After the aggravation with Renolgy, I put together my own solar set up. The parts all got here Friday ( battery coming from China took forever...)

The only mishap was with the battery (of course). Some where in shipping I looks like it was tossed by a gorllia. The plastic housing on one coner was cracked. Dealer said if it will still work, they would credit 1/2 back to me and send a new case.

So I pulled everything out and hooked it up to test.

Battery seams to be fine. Out of the box it was reading 26.6 volts. I ran it down to 24 volts and then put solar panel on it and charged back up to 26.4 before the sun set. I did not try the inverter/ charger on a/c yet, I have an unused RV power cord I am going to make my feed line but it's at cabin.

I really like the Victron MPPT controller. I wish I had went with all of their products...

It will be a while before I can get up to the cabin to mount them. Climbing on the roof is not something I want to do up there by myself.

Just a few photos of it rigged up in the carport:
