I don't know whether I missed it, but I would love to see a detailed video of the epanels.  I realise that it would be difficult to show an install for all of the various types of inverters and controllers and whatnot, but an up-close look at the panel to include all of the bits and pieces and pre-wiring would be nice.

I already have a panel on the way, but I'm really not sure what I'll find when I open the box.

You'll find a very nice piece of gear anyone can work with.

Watt is absolutely correct. They are very straight forward to work with. Well marked connections, simple mounting and connection instructions.

Biggest issue I had was lifting and placing the door with the 70# FX2524 inverter mounted on it but at the time I was recovering from a rotator cuff injury that made lifting tough. It makes for a very compact, neat install in short order.

You will be glad you got one.

I know I was.

Well, it sounds as if we are both in the same boat.  I can't speak for Tom, cuz he really is good at all these things but, when you got THIS



to work with..... we really can't go wrong.  Not only this well labeled system and the manual which comes with all the panels but you have this great forum for support...

I'm not sure which panel you have on order but all of them are top notch. 

Best of luck.

Thanks for the photo and words of encouragement.

Mine will end up being a somewhat modified install - I have a Samlex inverter, but got an Outback panel.  I had planned on just getting a MNDC, but found someone selling the Outback epanels for less than the MNDC.

The hack-job that I'll have to do will fit in nicely with my very rustic off-grid camp.
