Which terminal should I use on the van battery positive post to connect to my solar (house) battery?
There appears to be a fuse between A and B. Which A, B or D is connected direct to C?

IMO I'd put a fuse between it and "D"

I had a 10ga wire and I used the tab with the smaller hole, inline fuse inbetween.

I used a fuse just like the one one between A and B to connect the cable to D. I put a bolt up through the bottom of D, then the fuse, then a nut. I did the same on the other side of the mega type fuse to connect the cable.

Next DAQ (dumb a$$ question)... What type of fuse is that?
My Renogy DCC50S calls for a 75A inline from van battery/alternator and 65A inline to the house battery. I find 60A and 80A fuses, are those close enough?

For those of you who used ‘D’, what bolt(s) did you use? I checked with dealership parts dept. while getting shifter cable recall done. He couldn’t find bolt like those used in A and B.

Just a regular old bolt from the hardware store. Put a dab of antisieze on the thread.

I’d probably opt for stainless steel from the jewelry drawers. Ditto on the anti-seize.

Wonder if you could take a bolt, put it in a drill and use a file to round the head so it would fit in the hole at E... or if the hole is deep, cut the head off the bolt, wrap electrical tape around the headless bolt until it fits tightly in the hole, Then put on a nut, the wire lug, then another nut.
