Allright...so some more pics. All pretty much done now....fuel line to be relocated/replaced as well.





Lugs come rated for two sizes of cable...regular electrical shit (rw90) or flex (welding cable). Typically he next size up is used for welding cable as it is misery to get all strands under the lug when the lug is the same size....but being the anal prick I am....tape the strands before the insulation is removed and then start in lug....then remove tape



More progress:









Shoved the phone up so I could get a decent pic of the starter bolt....wanted to make sure the lug wasn't getting hung up




Refeeding the POS Xantrex Inverter...









Mocking up the beer fridge:



Wire pullin'

Used some angle iron with velcro to secure the fridge:



Custom door latch





And the custom anti-tip device:



Since I simply extended the inverter cct, I did the same thing BB did for a transfer switch. Might extend it for the propane fridge as well.



Once underneath I started to see "stuff"...as in crappy ass corroded connections.



Relabeled for future reference and less grief



Then crimped, soldered and heat shrink with sealant:



One of the originals:



More progress:
