Advice: Where should all this spiffy electrical stuff go?

The time has come to upgrade all the electrical systems in our 2018 FC25FB Twin. The plan is to add:

Victron Multiplus 3000 Hybrid Inverter
200 AH Battle Born batteries (with room to add more)
500 W solar with Victron Solar MPPT charge controller
Victron Orion DC-DC converter
Victron 712 Battery Monitor

Here's what I'm thinking right now but I'd rather not be intruding into the outside storage compartment with the Multiplus like this. Other ideas?

I can't speak about where to put it. However, the AC and DC wiring for these Hybrid (Pass Through) Inverter/Chargers is different. Do your research about how to wire these devices, some of it is counter intuitive. Am attaching a wiring diagram and Manual for your Multiplus. Remember, the devil's in the details.
