Well Floor replacement is pretty well done. Time to rewire the old 59. The 40+ rear old wires need to be redone.
Some information on my original layout. Our Coach has both 110V lighting and 12 volt
lighting. All items that had the option of 12v
and 110 operation had a Swith at the appliance that would route the 110v through a step down transformer. They did not run off a Univolt. This included the overhead fans and the blower on the heater.
There are several of us currently restoring and updating our Vintage coaches. I plan on a full update including some safety related up grades (GFIC breakers and such)
The old 2 110 circuit box is not cutting it. It's gone. It will be replaced with a 8 breaker circuit box. The 110v breaker box will be in the rear of the coach like original.
Breaker lay out
#1 110v lighting. I may retain the existing wiring since I am trying to avoid removing anymore interior wall.
#2 Goucho 110 wall plug (Currently has a window A/C plugged into it so going dedicated. will be next year before new over head A/C is installed).
#3 Street side Galley wall plugs GFIC
#4 Curb side wall plugs and Vanity.
#5 Pre wire for RV A/C with heat strip
#6 Converter /Charger
# 7 Fridge on a dedicated circuit.
#8 water heater till funds are available for a RV replacement,
system will be run by a Intellicharger 9160. I'm still mulling over location to mount this. Couple other component locations are still up in the air.
I am thinking about incorperating a 1500
watt or better inverter into the system. It will run the galley side wall plugs only since I don't want to acidently over load it by having it before the breaker box. That will prevent the A/C from being able to draw from it. Since we have both 12v
and 110v lighting in most locations there is no need to have any of the lighting on it.
The inverter is what is throwing me at this point. I have read some inverters will auto switch when 110v is available so I'm trying to decide if that's worth the price verses having a manual switch over set up.
I also need to decide on battery location. Real estate on the tounge is at a premium. I'm starting to think relocating the battery to under the center of the Goucho is a better option then trying to move the tanks and make room. I'm also dealing with Dual cam sway control arms interfering with the tank mount.
Hate having the battery inside with the venting concerns but may have to be done. I also hate loosing the center drawer of the goucho but if I did that would be enough room for 2 batteires.
At this point I think the Intelicharger will be located in the back next to the Fuse box. I will run a 4 gage cable from the battery at the front to the rear to handle the powere going both ways if I do incorperate a Inverter.
I'm open to product recemondations as well as comments on system layout or items to incorperate for future needs.
