The final solar connection just inches away

      Only one more last final connection to go. You see I finally had to breakdown and drill one hole into my roof Ouch - that really hurt !!! When I found this connector I felt confident I could get a pretty good seal. This is a special connector 3/4" inch nut for # 10 solar wires with MC 4 cables. It has a rubber washer with 4 holes on the inside that allows for the wires to be put through it and then it can be tightened to make it absolutely a watertight seal.  Now I'm just praying the solar panels produce some power :-) when the sun comes out.  Just checked and the panels are reading 113 volts DC at 11 am , so far so good.

I really should not tell you this secret, but since i'm such a nice guy here it is ..... The special nut.
