yep that mess looks mighty familiar.

forgot u had the dinette/31 with that tight corner space..

good job with the sofa.

my understanding (at the basic/elementary level) is that ideally those RED wires need to be replaced.

IF one wants to take FULL advantage of the extra capacity (solar, charger, batteries) soon to be added.

i think the REDs are 6 awg and 4 awg is preferred with the extra amperage.

(and really i'm just repeating what the vendor suggested to me)

cheers

Ouch - lots of scary stuff there - kinda makes my "OEM - Prodigy" wire harness (complete with switch & relay) look "Ultra-Tame"....

Maybe running those HDMI cables from the front to the back won't be too hard of a chore after all...

2air,
Thank You. The couch was a little bit of a challenge. Getting it back in will prove a little header since I installed the solar controller out side the couch frame.

All of the previous wiring was 4 gauge. I am staying with 4 gauge since it plenty big to handle the loads. I am limiting the draw from any one of the batteries to 100A. And the total draw limit will be 100A by circuit breaker.The converter, inverter and solar controller will have breakers on the main panel. I might re-use some of the "old" wire if the lengths are correct. Otherwise it will all be replaced.

Just a little update.
I finally have all the parts I need to install the new system. It will be delayed until after my last final next week. School takes priority at this point.

Michelle,

What is it with our 'supervisors'? Our outside cat, Tiger follows us into our AS every chance she gets! She has to be involved with all our AS projects, as well...must be some kind of feline DNA thing...

Here's Tiger 'supervising' the installation of our Ikea futon that replaced the original gaucho...

Ok, School is out!
I spent my first time in the trailer this afternoon. Spent a lot of time figuring out where to place all the new items. It took me three hours to mount everything that needs to be accessed can be accessed. No easy feat since I added another battery box under the couch.

One small problem. the hot buss. There are two black wires and an orange wire attached to the buss. Non of the diagrams in the owners manual match what is in the trailer.
So I suspect on of the black wires is the trailer charge line. Another of the wires is for the break-a-way switch. One is the Acti-Brake. The only problem. Which is what?

Pictures of the new components to follow tomorrow.

It's start! I have mounted all the major components and have started routing cables. Nothing it tightened down yet.... If something doesn't look strait, well it is the camera or the parallax from the camera lens or aliens or something. I did the best I could sitting on my rear with one leg folded under me.
