Check my wiring...please!

I want to re-do my wiring with added solar, 2000W inverter and 4 AGM 6v, and this is what I came up with after reading sooo much excellent info here over the weeks!

What do you guys think?

I'm thinking of using the existing solenoid to kill all power and have solar still charge the AGM's as long as it's switched on.

Did I blunder somewhere? Suggestions?

Thanks

Based on my electrical knowledge it'll work. My recommendation would be to put that 300a fuse on the battery side of your solenoid. Didn't check wire gauges.

Here is mine, looks similar
Just be sure your wire runs are as short as possible

Keep the wire runs short especially for the inverter.

Determine whether you really need the inverter behind the disconnect as a large enough disconnect will be big and expensive.

Consider moving the 300a inverter fuse closer to the battery and perhaps in front of the disconnect if you're really going to run the inverter through it.

A schematic doesn't fully capture best wiring practices in this situation. Keep the wire leads short and secure. Keep the + and - from the battery physically separate by 12" if possible until you get through the first fuse.

How much solar do you plan to use? I think if less than 400W then 6/2 wire is okay, if you think you will expand, may want to go to 4/2.

Also, that fuse off the inverter should be less than 18 inches from battery. I didn't see distances on everything. Should have someone like Lewster give it the one over, he does this for a living.

Depending on your budget and like or dislike of tech, there are better options for the solar charger and battery monitor. I started out with the bogart equipment, but moved to an MPPT and higher tech solutions (Victron) that allow blue tooth setup and monitoring of the charger and battery monitor.
