Same concern but if you reverse the fans like I have then they blow upwards and so hot air wont pool in the breaker box...should be ok.... you could add a vent in the bottom ...

Must say I like the box... very much... does it have a cover/door...?

Yes has a cover. At this stage not too worried about overheating, all the main vents are open. Will monitor it.

Nicely done. 

Can those battery fuse holder handle DC current, or just AC? I only see a "~" on it, meaning it's rated for AC

Bowsie, I have one question.

Your modular changeover switch output is connected to the Inverter output circuit breaker for AC bypass mode?

Do you have to switch off the inverter output breaker when you run bypass mode? and can it cause damage to the inverter if you leave the output breaker on?

Not sure what changeover he has there, but changeovers are usually break before make, double pole double throw sort of things that are off in the middle. So you won't cause damage if you leave the output breaker on the inverter on.

As always there may be good reasons to turn that breaker off anyway. Many changeover switches don't like to be switched under load. It might make sense to turn off a breaker that IS designed to handle opening under load first before throwing the changeover.

Also, I had such an ACDC changeover once, and at times it wouldn't properly engage on the inverter side. This quickly led to visions and fears that one day it also might not disengage on the one side... or make poor contact and cause a fire. I soon got rid of it.
