Short Description:  Install Bus Manager

1400 - 1654

Today I installed the Bus Manager.

I needed to route the two battery feed lines to the BM. I decided to run them in a length of nylon conduit and secure the conduit using Adel clamps. Sounds simple but it took several iterations to determine the best routing.

Once the conduit was secured, the two battery feeds were installed in the conduit and trimmed to length at the BM end. I ended up routing the conduit through a previously fabricated bracket used to secure the CF side panels. This was a good choice as the bracket secures the feed lines and eliminates any pressure on the BM due to the heavy gauge wires.

Once the proper length was determined, ring terminal ends were crimped to the wires and protected with double layer heat shrink.

Next I labeled and installed all remaining wires in the BM. The ring terminal ends were crimped and secured to the BM posts per BM instructions. The battery feeds were then installed and secured. The BM cover was then secured to the BM. Fit was vaerified and I found that I needed to remove the BM mount to relieve the areas adjacent to the the wire exits to prevent chafing. This was accomplished and the mount was reinstalled. The BM was again inserted in the mount and fit verified. No interference noted.

I will need to source two long tie wraps to finish the installation.
