Great advise from the guys. I have my system wired with a bus bar like the one they recommend. It simplifies everything when you don't have too many wires on a terminal. With the shunt between the bus bar and the batteries, you can monitor all of the flow in and out of the battery bank.
I relied heavily on Nigel Calder's "Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual", when I added a larger charger, inverter and batteries to my boat. If you don't have a copy, I highly recommend it.
