For anyone wondering about the second picture, with my remodel I am placing my solar charge controller and inverter on the back side of the OE panel. I built a cubbie door that I can access those and service them from within the trailer if need be.
More photos as work progresses. I keep starting and stopping to order things.
Also, the two ? marks. I have no idea WTF is going on with these. Airstream's idea of grounding a wire is to butt connect it to a bigger wire. And this black and white wire with a 1 amp fuse in the middle of it. No clue what that's for. But it has to be factory since off into the wall it goes.
And yeah, I snapped the photo before I put the heat gun on the heat shrink and cut my remaining zip ties. Either way, better than before.
I see that 1 amp fuse all the time. Looking how it's wired to the on the positive copper bar side of the positive bus bar and not on the downstream side of the DC circuit breakers, It is probably the LP detector. Pull the fuse and see if the little green light on the detector goes out.
BTW, I'm working on a brandy new '15 27FB Twin and it seems that Airstream has been listening on our comments about wiring!
The wiring job, especially in the circuit breaker box, is noticeably neater, but still has a way to go to be fully acceptable.
Also, Parallax has upgraded their DC fuse block that cones with the converter package to include LED failure lights........Just like the ones Progressive Dynamics has been using for years!!
