The '57 Bubble is coming right along - it's a total rebuild other than the frame and shell. The plan now is to install an IntelliPower + Charge Wizard to charge the two 12v batteries when on shore power. When boondocking, charge batteries via the solar panels; and when towing, the truck engine to charge the batteries. I will have a couple of 110v outlets for when there's power available at RV parks but all the appliances are propane or 12v.
My question is how is the electrical configuration to "come together" - i.e., there are 3 ways to charge the batteries but is there some type of central control system to monitor which input is running and to prevent overcharging?
The last piece of possible over-kill is a Honda generator in the truck bed. That makes four sources of charge.
