Maine Sail, just a couple of quick questions...

First, I have the bus bars and MRBF terminals in hand now, so I've been scoping out where to place them. I've seen that pic of the S34 battery compartment, where you have the NEG bus and shunt along the after bulkhead of the battery compartment. Do you mind me asking--where did you put the POS bus? Is it opposite? That looks like a tight spot on our boat.

I'm thinking of putting the MRBF fuses on the bus bar, only because the clearance above the batteries is tight. They appear to fit, but they are very close.

Second, the POS studs on my batteries are 5/16, not 3/8. Is this going to be an issue with the MRBFs since they're made to mount on 3/8 studs?
