    Great system

    Posted by Kriz General Services ,LLC.(Upstate NY) on Feb 13, 2020

    This is a very nice system. quieter than most, fairly easy to install. only downfalls are that the transfer switch is very large and heavy, and you have to run a 14/2 wire for the charger 2- 18awg strands for the controller. So,for an installer of multi brands, its more materials you have to stock on hand and definitely need a helper to mount the switch. Over all a very nice looking and running system.
