Default VPX/PPS and aft battery

Considering doing a VPX-Pro and PPS installation in my new RV8; didn't do it in my RV14 but seems like it could be good.

Aft battery: has anyone done with with a PPS? I suppose the battery cable would run to the VPX and then forward to the PPS rather than out and back? Would require a battery contactor to do that but seems simpler.

Where would the VPX be placed best for an aft battery?

I didnít put my battery in the back and I donít have a PPS, but I do have a VP-X. Iím thinking the master will be in the back with the battery and a #2 wire run to the PPS on the firewall. Then a power wire back to the VP-X. I used a #6 from the firewall battery master.

I mounted my VP-X behind my GRT sport EFIS displays. I have no idea how to get these pics into the correct orientation.
