Victron solar accessories

May we please ask for input? Currently finishing up our build sheet for 17A and we are deciding on placement for the Zamp port (10 gauge) for 100-120 watt portable solar panels. As the 2-6V batteries are on the rear bumper, it would seem that the port will be on the Rear P/Side.

1. As we will most likely be installing a Victron solar controller - is there also room for that in the bench seat compartment?

2. In addition, we are asking ETI to run the wiring for a Victron battery monitor (BMV 700) and I realize that the shunt needs to be located near the battery, so is the best location for the shunt in this same compartment?

Decided on Victron for ease of installation instructions, and the fact the solar controller now comes with built-in blue tooth that will allow us to check on both the solar controller and the battery monitor.

We have of course asked our sales rep Julie these questions, but it never hurts to hear some other perspectives.
We have learned a great deal from everyone's advice on many topics here, the forum is a great resource.
