Don't do Electrical when tired!

I was in a hurry and wanted to finish the testing of the battery heaters for my lithium. I cracked the mega fuse block for a mega fuse so I mounted it to the 65A relay to test. Well it failed and must have exploded and dropped and bridged the contacts.
I found one of the heater wires was cut and grounded to frame. Which I would have double inspected if it wasn't late and stayed longer for testing.
Now after a couple weeks cleaning the front compartment and massive relocation of components and replacing a lot of wiring. Btw, smoke got into and through entire RV. But is now cleaned.

So its snowing again here in SK. Canada. And my battery warmers have been doing great. I've been out to RV checking a couple times today. Temps are right at freezing, and I'm seeing 50 deg in batteries.

Lithium charging has been working. It keeps topping the batteries every 5-6 hours. I have the inverter running just to cycle it a bit.

Of all the setups I've seen over the years, yours is definitely the best looking one yet.
