I sympathize with your dilemma. While I have a new trailer, I did many, many modifications to it....including Magnum MSH inverter, 4 6V AGM batteries, 600W of solar, cell amp, WiFi Ranger, ice maker, etc., etc. What I did NOT want to do was have a meter here and a switch there. So, I made a custom panel and ran all my wiring into one central location. After about 9 months with my new trailer, I've found it really works well. For one thing, I have a SINGLE place to turn things on and off. Only exceptions are water pump (kitchen) and water heater gas/electric (bath). I installed this panel in my closet. (Sorry photo is sidewise.)

panel

Good job on the panel, BAB. Is the panel located in a cabinet or a visible wall surface? And switches? I hadn't even thought about putting any kind of switches in. That would be an interesting consideration for the near future... Tom

It's located inside the closet of my Classic (left side, top). So, it's behind a door and convenient....but also not visible, so it doesn't detract from the cherry interior. As I was planning this install, I planned for a total of 8 12V switches and 4 120V. I could use a few more 12V switches. Installed a bus bar for the 12V, and each circuit is individually fused. (Behind the panel, mounted on an adjacent wall.
