Victron Quattro 5000 Location


Elaine Leishman
 

We are going to install a victron quattro 5000 inverter/charger and looking for advice as to the location on a super Maramu 2000.
We are looking at 2 options,  .

- locating it next to the nav station in the storage area on the wall that divides the companion way.  This would keep the 24v cabling shorter and hopefully provide a cooler, cleaner environment.  Weight on the starboard side wouldn't hurt.  Question, how much noise do they make when running, compared to the fridge?

- locating it in the engine room, shorter to 40v power cabling, wouldn't hear it running over the gender.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, 
Elaine and Michael
