2p4s? Or 4p2s don't forget fuses in each string unless those wires can withstand 60 amp..

Oops, you are right. The panel configuration will be 2S4P, and yes, each of the four strings will have a 30A fuse. Otherwise, it looks okay? Thanks again for your help Joe.

So... November will mark six months that the battery pack has been operational in the garage. I am still not pushing the pack very hard; still just running the garage fridge, occasional power tools and shop vac. I have had zero issues with the pack, inverter, BMS units, or any other part of the system.

Here in the next few weeks, I hope to get my solar panel mounting hardware and roof "real estate" plan finalized. I am also currently finalizing the interior mounting scheme for the indoor mini split unit.

If only I hadn't been so "bus lazy" this summer I could have done some spray foam, and even installed the wood stove. I could have had a nice warm bus to work in this winter. Maybe it's not too late...
