Water heater compartment works well.. Just drill the wires through the bulkhead.

With some batts they will clear but with most they won't. The buss bar is fine joust route the POS into the water heater compartment.

Many are and Blue Seas does not make a 5/16" MRBF, been round and round with their engineering department on this.

Blue Seas says it is perfectly safe and "acceptable" if your post has a wide enough base to use a 3/8" on a 5/16" stud.. Personally I would rather see a 5/16" MRBF but they simply don't exist..
