Question Just basic juice

Nothing to the electrical system in an Airstream . Most of it is just remembering basics.

Just pay attention and keep to the schematics in the manual. Oh and don't do what I did back when I was just called the camel!

Got the green wire and the black wire confused, then there was something about the 4-3 generator plug and something about 3 phase. not a good day The AC ran so hard I got ice crystals dangling from the cabinets Everyone started calling me Smokin Camel that afternoon. In fact it was right after the green wire-black wire thing

Do try a 3 phase battery charger, I got one from Randy and it was one of the best investments I made. Not to mention taking 30 Lbs. off of the rear area.
