  • Battery monitor (CHEAP)

    So I went to amazon and ordered the cheap battery meter. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Finally got around to installing it as the bracket they list for the shunt is hit or major miss on the fit.

    I made my own bracket from some: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 that was laying around

    Problem then was I had no meter pod (it's an odd size at 2-1/8")

    So I dabbed up a quick mount from some: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 using a scrap board I had for the mold.

    for now it's in the front bay. Don't know if I want to put it with the command center. Mainly looking to see if I do have a battery problem. Sometimes it does odd things.

    Jlawles2 -- the display looks exactly like the Furrion-branded version GD is installing in some new units.

      It is basically the same unit. I tested a non Furrion unit for them about a year ago. It may not have all the whistles and bells of a Victron unit, but it's a huge difference over the standard display panel lights.
