If Dani’s reaction to me flipping a switch and the VHF coming on was any indication, then I’d say yes they do.  However, lets not get too excited or ahead of ourselves. The VHF did come on but it was just for a second as I was testing.
The day started with me mounting shunts and bus bars.  Then the fun continued with connecting the batteries and jumpers between all this mess.
Connecting the breaker panel to shunts and busbars
The fun part started when I began connecting the breaker panel up.  I probably went a little overboard with separated side wiring and all 6AWG connections.  But hey, I might as well over build right?
Connecting the breaker panel
Behind this mess was the connected positive bus and its 1/0 wires from the battery to the bus, then another 1/0 to the main switch.  Then another run from the switch to the panel shunt before the final connection.

It still looks a little sloppy here but trust me, its looking pretty good now.

Testing the connections.
Testing the Breaker panel connection
With the panel all hooked up I was finally ready to run the positive jumper from the main + bus to the shunt and then finally I plugged in the data cable and BING, the battery monitor turned on!  FINALLY.  I’ve been planning this moment for months.
Reading the battery monitor amperage
Next we mounted the MPPT controller and connected it up along with one of the solar panels.
Mounting the MPPT solar panel control
With fading sunlight and some clouds we saw it putting upwards of 1.4 amps into the battery bank.  Cool!
Finished connecting the breaker panel

Conditions as we saw our first solar born amps going into the bank.

Right before a sundowner in the cockpit.

Are we really 12v daredevils yet?
