Yay! Finally getting this out. Best of luck to anyone trying to do their electrical and battery set up! It was a lot of work, but it was also the most rewarding step!
This is a general ‘how to’ video but this is not a step by step walkthrough. I’m no electrician! This video should help you get started when setting things up, and help you make some important purchases. Best of luck!
