Battery Inside

I agree with the concerns and comments posted here. My Fiber Stream came with an inside battery location, but I wanted to improve upon it. Have a look here: Photos 10-18

I also installed a non-sparking disconnect switch immediately outside of the box. It's the red handle to the upper right. On the upper left are my termination blocks for all my power consumers.

The concept has really worked well for me, and I do not have to open the battery box unless I am taking the battery out.

Very tidy efficient secure system. Battery is in the best of all positions, my opinion. If you change to a Yellow Top Optima or similar deep cycle AGM type you will be able to dump the box. My neighbour would say, if you cut an outside, lockable access door, it will be perfect, because you can also stuff in other stuff like blocks and cables. I disagree, but then my Trillium is smaller! and I am son of KISS.
