Melted corner3606 viewsThis is a better view of the melted mess in the corner.
I've moved the tilt switch and relay out of the way.
The burning brake line melted both water drain tubes, and damaged the battery cable.

Version 1 Genset Rack3901 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
