Wow, thank you. This helps a great deal. May I ask one more question? Can I elimnate all of the mess, the battery/shore power stuff, and just run the 12 volt from the Intelli-Power to the battery and then on to the various circuits? By that I mean install a 12 volt distribution panel and not worry switching back and forth?

Can you tell that I'm a little nervous about the electric stuff?

Toastie,
That is a nice clean install. Good job! My only consern is that it appears the DC wiring could be a little under rated. I would recommend at least 8 AWG for a 45 amp converter. If that is indeed 8 AWG or larger, you're fine but it just looks small in the photo.

I will take a look as soon as the weather breaks, I will replace if not 8 AWG.
Thanks very much...........

i am so delighted that i found these pictures. i was working on my 1965 caravel, looking at that distribution box and it looks just like the first picture. it gave me so much solace to realize that i am not the only one that has wiring that looks like that. i was convinced that someone had rewired it but in fact it looks so much like that picture that probably the same guy did it in the factory in 1965.
