That sounds good to me. I was planning on using 1/4" ID hose from the keg to the plate to reduce resistance a little, and then use the 3/16" ID hose from the plate to the faucet. Thoughts on that?

Yes, I'm sending the 24v line to an hoa switch, then to the 13 pin. The 14 pin is going to the coaxial panel mount. The neutral on the panel mount is going to the neutral bus.
