Are those larger/taller solar panel feet part of the AM Solar SF100 kit or are they a separate purchase?

I can't find those at AM Solar. The 160w solar feet are only 5mm taller.

Got a link?

Try calling them and ask for the 'Lewster' feet.

I noticed Tsunami's AS is a 2016 with the A/C hump. Mine doesn't have that hump. Looking at the OP photos the panels are almost level using the feet that come with the panels.

Optical illusion!! I have always used extended length feet for Airstream installation. They are placed on the outside rails to level the panels, which is not possible using AM SOlars regular 3-hole rocker foot mounts.

I had the super tall feet made for the new, ducted air raised roof of the 2015+ model years.

Yep. Even bigger ones now with the higher roof curve for the ducted A/C

Wondering???

Installed the IPN Pro Remote today, final piece of the system. Agonized over location. So the question is: when I plugged the RJ-11 cable in the IPN Pro it lit up and displayed Battery 13.2V Volt/AMP +773.3A when it finally settled out. Then I connected the 18/2 twisted pair and the Volt/AMP went to +0.0A. Would this indicate a problem. The AS is indoors under florescent lighting.

If you connected the IPN remote without connecting the twisted pair from the current shunt, the fact that it displayed 773A doesn't surprise me, since the IPN remote is looking for a very small voltage drop across the shunt and you left the IPN remote input unterminated. After connecting the shunt, the IPN remote should indicate the current drain from the battery when you start turning on various loads in your trailer.

I'm heading out to the barn to disconnect shore power and start turing on fans, lights, and inverter. More to follow. Thanks
