It may not seem like much, but the Master power switch and battery contactor are now wired up.  I don’t have anything running off the electrical system yet so I hooked up the multimeter so verify.

One of the reasons for this is that while I was pulling wires and hooking up the overhead switch panel, I decided to test every wire, terminal and switch. Out of the dozen or so circuits, I found one that had a bad crimp on the terminal.  It was relatively easy to troubleshoot and repair. Had I waited until everything was done, it would have been a major PITA.

So now, I test every single circuit when I install it.
