total remodel, converter/other electrical questions

I have a 31' sovereign that was totally gutted when I got it. I am converting it to all electric. So I just re ran all of the 110v wires... 5 - 20amp breakers worth. Run 1-front elec outlets, and fridge, Run 2- gally outlets, ext outlets and cooktop, Run 3-AC, Run 4- hot water heater, aand Run 5- bath and other rear outlets, and relocated the panel just above where the old univolt sat. ( about 4' past the fender well on the passenger side) now my questions...
Does anyone for see a problem with the way I have laid out the 110v electrical?
Am I ok relocating the 110v panel and not the 12v since the only place they tie in together is through the converter?
What type of converter do I need? And since its gutted what other upgrades are recommended?powersaver, etc... ( I do a lot of camping on private land where a generator would be used)
Lastly I want to go ahead and run all the wires for my electronic toys... How can I ran the sound from my tv through the 12v radio that I will be installing so it will come out through the speakers. Any other info, input, or ideas that I'm not thinking about would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I only hope you are not planning on operating everything on the original 30 amp electrical cord. It will not have the capacity to operate all of the things you have mentioned, range, water heater, AC and so on. To do all of that you would need a 50 amp cord and service.

A progressive dynamics PD9245 would be a good choice for the converter charger.

How can you tell how many amps the cord is?

If it is a standard Airstream of that year, it will be a 30 amp cord with 3 #10 wires. Black will be the hot leg, White the neutral, and Green the ground. There were no options then, so if it original, that is what you have.

Use a RCA to miniplug adapter. Connect the RCA ends to the TV and the miniplug end to an auxiliary input of some kind on the 12v stereo. I have mine plugged into the aux/bluetooth input on the back of my JVC unit. To listen to the TV sound, I switch to "bluetooth."

By the kind of plug, wire size. Also I believe that most 50 amp hook ups are 220 volts? Some one else chime in if I'm incorrect.
