Part II of installing a solar power generating system in a small off grid cabin in the woods. We install the second string of hightec solar panels. We install the PV wire cord grip which makes a water tight connection to route the wires off the roof. We change around the position of some stuff, install the Victron 100/30 charge controller, the Cotek SD 124 1500 inverter, the Victron BMV 712 battery monitor and the Victron temperature sensor. We mount the IOTA DLS 27-40-X 40 amp battery charger and IQ4X smart charger. In part III I’ll give a quick rundown of what each component does and explain some of the choices I made when selecting components.
