    The benefit of the neck gaiter over just a turtleneck is that if you need to, you can pull it up over your nose and therefore cover your cheeks, nose and mouth.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the reply. Did you put an inline fuse in the line to the battery?

    Is your installation intended for battery top-off/maintenance charging? Or for full recharging?

    Thanks!

    Hello Wes,

    These look good. One question:

    There seems to be hold down the centerline. Are they to hold two halves together? Or can they be used to mount the connector on a bulkhead?

    thanks!
