12v converter monitor

Hello friends, I just got finished installing a new WFCO brand converter main board that went out without me knowing until lights were very dim. I had a 55 amp in before but I replaced it with a 75 amp that was 150.00 cheaper brand new. Just so that does not happen again without me knowing I installed a monitor panel meter to tell me my battery status at all times. The meter I installed has a high and low voltage limit alarm that you can adjust onboard. Total cost...8.00! I also installed another one on top as a redundancy confirmation. ( see pics ) Also something to look at while watching tv lol On the pics is a blue led rocker switch that controls a black tank exhaust fan I installed. The second red rocker controls a high speed fan I installed in the refrigerator exhaust vent. The third red rocker is a low speed fan beside the high speed fan for the fridge. The green led to the left is a variable control for a fan I put in the roof vent. Only cost 9.00 for fan and vari control. The rockers 99 cents each, fridge fans 5.00 each. Saved some money. Everything I used can be had at marlinpjones.com. if you can't find the part numbers message me. The monitor meter panel is cheap insurance.
