Added 4 Batteries and Inverter

Just finished adding 4 - 6 volt batteries and a 2000w inverter. Hope to do some boondocking soon. I reinforced the front storage area to help support the battery weight and put up a plywood wall to mount the inverter and wiring to. Built the battery box from wood and vented it. Turned out pretty good. Here are a few pictures.

Yes the solar panels will be coming soon. Need to save up for a while. The batteries and inverter set me back a little.

Is the inverter a pure sine wave? What make is it?

OK, I see it's a Xantrex

Dave,
I'm impressed. Very nice job.
Who needs led's when you have that kind of amperage!
Nothing like two, 6 volters, not to mention 4!

Haven't had it out yet to test it. I do have all LED lights. We are leaving on an extended trip in the middle of July. Hope to travel through PA, NY, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and then heading south along the coast. My last day at work was Friday. Retired after 40 years at the same place. Now it's time to see the good old USA.
