Default Under seat battery array

Thought I would show what I've done to get 126AH of battery stashed under the seats. Lucky for me, I got the batteries for free. Would normally cost about $500 (ish).
I wont be running a winch of it or anything high amp.
I will upgrade the Andersons to 8 or 10g cable to safely run the inverter.

Good idea. Take care on water crossings

Good point, Kevin.
I might look at moving the exposed connectors and inverter to a higher location and getting a new box. Any water that comes over the top of the box is going to get to the seat warmers , so deepest crossing is determined by top of this box.
