You might want to ask for a snow guarantee and have a backup plan. So far the snowpack is almost nonexistent.

The 6061 T-6 bends fine if you anneal it. It will age harden back to about T-4 in a few days or so. I heat it to 800f, let cool and bend it.

The trouble with the old style solid state isolators is they lose about a 1/2 volt on the secondary side and as a consequence they do not charge the aux battery well. A relay is the way to go.
