Same here.

Massively painful, which led to some boring moments testing, testing and 
more testing. But after 5 months with electricians, electrical 
certifiers, battery vendors and inverter vendors (and a little 
voltage/amp sensor to capture slow voltage grid brownouts that kept 
tripping my battery), it's been solid for nearly a year. And looking good.

I can now travel and not worry about the Mrs. waking me up from my 
sleep, on the far side of the world :-).
