Close Up With Covers Removed

This photos shows the ANL fuses and buss bar. Just makes it easier to see.

One of the benefits of a charger like the Sterling is that you can use the charger as a 12V power supply if you disconnect or remove your batteries from the boat during off-season layup.

Wiring the charger direct to hard mounted buss bars and fuses, and not direct to the battery posts, means it can still power the vessels DC system even with the battery bank is disconnected and off line.

I use the Sterling ProCharge Ultra to power the vessels DC power needs during the off season and it acts perfectly as a 12V power supply, a real nice feature.

Nice work! I'm looking to do something similar on my motorhome. Was the bus bar something you had to fabricate custom? If so, any recommendations on where to get suitable stock? (tin plated would be great!) The ANL holders appear to be easy to find in numerous brands.
