In my earlier post I described the installation of a solar panel to charge our leisure battery. I mentioned that as I was confident that the system was working correctly I intended to move the controller to a point close to the battery.

Original controller position in an overhead locker

After removing the controller I used a domestic double electrical accessory box in which to join the panel cables entering from the roof to the cables running to the battery position.

I retained the fuse at that position and drilled a couple of holes in the side of the box so that it remained accessible on the outside of the box when its lid is fitted.

The controller is now located close to the battery and concealed in the off-side front seat locker.
