Slug damage

I just went out to move my backup / spare inverter charger onto a different battery bank. Took a peak inside & the internals have been corroded away by SLUGS. I guess I better check the main unit too now & fit slug guards to the vent holes. One main board is repairable as its just a couple of tracks but the other is toast as there are a few tracks but also some components corroded plus some burnt out components too.

I have asked Victron if they can repair or offer spares, but I am guessing that they will cost far to much. Will have to keep my eyes out for a damaged unit to rip the insides out of. If anyone spots a Victron Atlas 12/1500 please let me know.

Cheers Richard
