My trailer is on order otherwise I would figure it out for myself, but looking online it looks like Zamp uses the SAE connector instead of the MC4 connector. Renogy makes a converter, but it seems to me it would be better to just make a new union inside of the combiner box, but how to waterproof? Has anyone tackled this yet?

2017 Prewire Question

I just bypassed the Zamp wiring/box altogether and ran new, beefier wire.
Be careful, the AS prewire will only work well for a certain amount of solar watts otherwise the wire is significantly undersized.

My system is now complete (see earlier posts in this thread). Bit the bullet and rewired. I also bypassed the Zamp. The rewire, new combiner box and drilling a new hole were no big deal in retrospect! I placed a nice rubber grommet in the hole to protect from the sharp AS skin. In my 22 I was able to drop right into the closet for a clean install.
Anyone here able to provide a brief tutorial and how to interpret the readout from the Victron controller via the dongle on my phone? Including the history. I think I'm getting it but ....
