Looks Great simple and clean too. 10 Bats Nice.Ryan are you still on a 12 volt system or Did you jump up to 48??
OK I am going to ask. I am a prepper are you??

12 Volts DC & 120 AC.  Some items on 12 volts  (All lights / fans / cooking items and one of the ice boxes)

If your a prepper like myself, you would be a ( something ) to go to anything other than 12 volts. I am full aware of the benefits of higher voltage... BUT : My point of view : Nothing is accessible anymore....What to do, what can you get? 12 Volt batteries from vehicles is what I see...O i found one..that doesn't make 48 get the idea! Just my point of view that 12 volt is the most universal.

Without a doubt I am, infact I sponsor a Facebook page : Southern Preppers

So far : I have Rabbits & Chickens, 3 dogs small so they don't eat alot but BARK BARK, when anyone comes around.  Have a Garden with Veggies and experimental with Herbal plants.  Did you know I have a peppermint plant, chew a leaf and gets rid of a head ace? yup, wife is on that end : Garden side, I'm on the power and animal side.  In addition I use Mylar Bags and been packing my own long term stuff. Gallon size bags / Family pack (25 year storage in Heavy Duty Mylar) Get stuff while you can. Also I use FOOD GRADE 5 gallon buckets to seal up some other items (Rice / Sugars / Flours / ETC) along with Oxygen Absorbers to keep them fresh.  In addition to all this we are sort of cross training each other, the time it takes to learn to start is high, but teaching is short. Hence cross training between myself and wife. For example did you know eggs have a film on them, and can be stored uncleaned for a month or two? When you wash the film off, oxygen gets in them making them break down.  Around the world, Eggs are NOT in the cold section.  Lots of interesting stuff we do that is not always solar, Solar is just my Hobbies and Dream...Finally there...So What do I have running fine for the past three days? 3 Tvs : Cable Box : Cable Modem : Telephone : 3 Laptops : Xbox 360 / PS 3 : Dorm Refrigerator : Ice Chest Freezer : 2 Ceiling Fans : 16 Lights : Printer : 2 Box Fans : Inverter :  here and there other small items for short times. But the batteries at night under load 12.6 / 12.7 with all that running. Granted all items not always on except a couple icebox / freezer / light.  And as you seen in the video, I charge some usb items like cell phones, just used radio as example, however I leave it plugged there. Also I charged my batteries for my tools in the shop / shed.  

So, What do you think I need to ...change upgrade? I just got my shunt : about to install the JR tonight for the Midnight so I have a SOC  WOOT WOOT WOOT!!!!

Just asking on the prepper side. Me I am staying in the 12 volt world. Too Far down the prep road to turn back. Wife and I have been to, ME,Turkey,Korea,PI seen folk living with no electrical at all. We pattern our selfs after what we have seen.
Seen folks who were not ready when mother nature or worse happened.Nice to know young ones like you are out there.

Me I would stay 12 volt. What did Dale think. He is the goto guy for me and way better at advice. You system looks great.

Prepper side for Dale : Don't know. However he is 12 volts. So I assume he is aware of it with his knowledge. Would only make sense, I saw Argentina is about to belly up, same economy model as ours.  Wish I was young, 40 is still up there. However Mary is !
