Last night I had a break through with the book: RV Electrical Systems
I am not sure if the book got better or the glass of Jameson was helping my learning curve but something finally clicked last night. I can say that I am starting to understand the DC Electrical System. I now have a new list of things I know about DC Electrical Systems in RVs.
1. When not plugged in to Shore Power, the battery supplies DC current.
2. When plugged in to Shore Power, the Converter/Charger supplies the DC power and simultaneously charges the batteries.
3. Both the Battery Bank and the Converter/Charger are run into the DC Distribution Panel or DC Fuse Panel.
4. DC Current then runs out to the circuits. Each Circuit is protected by a blade style or glass tube fuse.
5. The Wire for each DC circuit needs to be a high enough gauge to provide the amps needed for the device it is powering. The full circuit length must be calculated to determine this.
6. The fuse protecting the circuit must be just higher than the amps of the devices on the circuit totaled. It also must not be higher than the wire on the circuit.
I feel like I am getting close to rewiring the DC side of the trailer... If anyone sees any glaring mistakes, feel free to correct me. Also, if I missed something important, let me know...
Pretty soon I will be able to tackle this.
