We have not yet started but seeing your offer, it prompts me to ask if you know the best way to run the cables from the cabin top to the house bank under the sole. I have not looked yey assuming it should be apparent how best to run them but after helping him install A/C, we ran across a few surprises with hollow bulkheads and little void space under the sole.
thanks in advance for any help. It's a 3 cabin if that matters
There is a wire run port and starboard under/behind a wooden trim board. When you turn on your sheer lights... that is it. THat is one solution. The other solution is to pull the floor boards and follow those runs.

Personally, I would stuck the battery in the forward V and not run 2/0 cable from the main house. That is the best use of your money, time, and resources. You will still have to feed the battery via a charger, but you can either put a dedicated charger forward for that or run a echo charger from your main charger in the Nav station. That is your choice.

Did that help?
