Am I missing any circuits?

Before I order my Main, sub-panels and a DC panel. I am just checking if I am missing anything. I have pulled all of the wire and before I start on the next phase I thought I would check in and ask.

DC Panel
  • Led lights in:
  • bedroom
  • kitchen
  • settee
  • center ceiling
  • outside porch
  • bathroom
  • Maxfans
  • carbon monoxide lp warning
  • TV
  • Water Pump
  • Refrigerator

AC Sub Panel
  • 15 amp Outlets 3
  • Air Conditioning
  • Micro wave
  • Refrigerator
  • GFIC outlets 2

This will also be posted on my rebuild page...
Thanks

An exterior outlet is part of the new coach configuration. That probably should be a GFIC.

It's not a circuit, but a consideration. A DC total disconnect is often used to kill all connected (parasitic) load, but it has another value. In the event of an electrical fire, disconnecting battery power and/or generator/solar/land line AC service does a lot toward killing a fire. If power continues to feed the fire, it grows faster and is harder to extinguish.

A capability to provide 12 DC plug in service can help auxlliary device use/charge.

High power USB ports help with power pack charging. Often such is installed as a charging station and point of use throughout the coach. Outlets with USB ports as part of the 120 volt receptacles might address this consideration.

In addition to the roof fan installation, interior circulation fans can help in warm weather. We use battery powered ones, but they run off AC as well. Consider all your uses when counting outlets and size the wiring and outlet for full power consumption.

Scare lights and awning decorative strings need an external power source/outlet.

Most of the above may fall outside your use profile, but a thought is easier to consider before than down the road. Pat

12V stuff
You have front porch light, I have a front door/step light and a scare light.
Cigarette lighter sockets fo 12V accessories and/or USB charge ports.
Bathroom vent fan
12V for thermostat (if separate from air conditioner) and furnace
Electronic ignition water heaters need 12V
Television if you plan to have one
Radio/Stereo again if you plan to have one

120V stuff
Television if you plan to have one

This goes in the "if you care" department - NEC allows only 5 15/20 amp branch circuits (breakers) in an RV with 30A service unless the 6th one is exclusively for the power converter and even then, restrictions apply as to the allowed drain of the other 5 branches. I guess that is why Airstream uses 6-breaker boxes in their 30A configuration with one of the breaker slots being back fed as the main breaker.

Thanks all for the input. In hindsight I had most of what you all mentioned but did not say it correctly . Meaning 2 of the 3 ac outlets have usb ports and that one of the gfic outlets is for the outside. Good information on the 6 breakers in one box. Most definitely a 12v kill switch . Did forget about the hot water heater.

What is Scare light ? Motion sensor?

Scare light is the term I have seen used for a light at about head height in the middle of the curb side of the trailer. I guess the idea is to keep away or run off animals. It may be what you are calling the porch light.
