All Victron lithium, solar, aux power setup

Full disclosure, Victron is sending me all their goodies for my SEMA build, I am paying retail for the solar panel and misc bits. That is why some of the choices may seem odd or more expensive that other ways of skinning a van.

Here is my setup mapped out thus far. Tomorrow I pick up the solar panel from Nothern Arizona Wind & Solar and some misc bits like breakers, wire, low power disconnects and such and will add them to the map.
I am also still working out fuses, wire gauges and all that.

All thoughts welcome and enjoyed.

Ed (CrewVanMan) of Matt Ford fame helped me spec out my order with Ford....except I was too dumb to realize I wanted the Ford Programmable Battery thing..that would have helped, and like others I have not been able to find it as a part I could install, oh well.

I did order:
250A alt, dual AGM factory batteries, Upfitter switches, Aux fuse block and all that.
None of that shows here, but I will put my Extreme Outback compressor, Lightforce LEDs (bumper, front, side/rear) to the Upfitter switches and factory alt/batts

The panel I am getting is a 360w LG residential size 65x39 that will live on the Sportsmobile poptop easily.
The Lithium battery is 150Ah and the Buck Boost DC-DC charger is a 50A model.
Go out and play in the dirt!
