Melted brake line7030 viewsThis shows the damage under the hood, after removing the charger and upper battery.
At the back of the 2 lower rear batteries, you can see 2 brake lines. One black, one white.
Guess which one melted...
At the back right, is where the melted line melted other tubes and wires.
Note that the brake line did NOT touch either of the rear battery posts!

Version 1 Genset Rack4025 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.
