Since I'm still waiting for the conjunction of a clear day with both my wife and I off work so that we can finish the installation of the front panel and window I thought this would be a good time for planning the next phase of the restoration. After installation of the first layer of insulation it will be time for the electrical runs to be installed. Both 12v
and 120v systems will be installed per Lewsters recommentations with marine grade tinned wiring and sealed connectors from Waytec. the 12v
distribution panel is Blue Sea from West Marine. Dedicated runs to all major appliances for ease in trouble shooting.
I am not too concerned with laying out the wiring past the distribution panels but the interconnectivity between the 2 voltages with a 3 stage charger/converter and multiple power sources has me a bit confused
I am designing for mostly boondocking with occasional park stays and am planning a 30A shore power outlet for home use.
120v shore power via a Marinco 30A inlet with occasional generator use for battery charging, 4-6 circuits for AC prewire, water heater, refrigerator supply, microwave circuit, battery charging, and half a dozen or so outlets both interior and exterior use. no 120v lighting planned.
power via 2 batteries charged by TV, 3 stage charger/converter, occasionally a generator, and prewired for a remote solar system with additional batteries to be added later as desired. Circuits for 2 FF vents, small heater fan-probably a Dickensen, reefer controls, water pump, stove exhaust fan, a small audio system, all LED reading, exterior and interior lights for low battery drain and various 12v outlets along with USB charging ports
Fairly minimal actually but much more than was there originally.
We dont even carry a tv as we prefer to entertain ourselves quietly and enjoy each others company.
anybody have a generic diagram showing how all these systems interconnect? all I am finding are plans for the individual systems
