It is just me but I would at least ziptie all those hose fittings. Yes, it is unlikely to come off but I sleep better at night not worrying whether the hose expanded enough to pop off. Just extra insurance IMO.
I'm not to worried about it, the S2 is set to it's second lowest setting there isn't much pressure in loop.

I guess there wouldn't be any harm in ordering a few of these though.

Agreed. If I have those available I use them or stainless hose clamps if they are out of the water. Zip ties are better than nothing.

Was able to get the xr15s installed before the live sale yesterday. The radion mounts are a bit cheesy. The light will not sit flat because of the mount and is slightly angled. It's not to bad though.

Also ecotech needs to debarb their metal rails on the mount, sliced my finger open sliding on the g5 adapter.

The Mobius app was fairly straightforward and easy to set up. Will have to borrow a par meter to see how strong these guys are.

that looks like you will get plenty of light
I hope so

Decided today I'm going to do the rail system to add another xr15 in the near future. BRS was out of stock so I ordered a 30inch mounting rail from marine Depot.
