    Warren,

    Sorry for delay, but I just saw this.

    The positive side bus pulls power from the battery side of the Blue Systems battery switch. That way I can shut off power to the Magnum but still have power to the 12 volt system. Nice for maintenance.

    The negative side bus pulls power from the battery side of the shunt.

    You can see this in the diagram I sent you.

    Dave

    Hi Warren, I sent you some pictures and diagrams in a pdf to your email address. Let me know if you have any questions. BTW, what is the year and model of your AS. Just curious. Dave

    Hi Warren,

    I am not sure what I did would be relevant for your situation, but let me explain what I did, then you can decide.

    I replaced my converter with a Magnum 3012 (3000 watt) hybrid inverter/charger. My shore power (or generator) comes into the trailer and passes through a hard wired EMS. It goes from there to a small sub-panel which powers the A/C heat pump unit with a 20 amp breaker and powers the inverter/charger with a 30 amp breaker. When on shore power, the Magnum passes through the ac electricity and feeds it back to the original Square D panel where the ac electricity is parceled out to all of the trailer's circuits except for the A/C. When I am using the inverter, the Magnum produces ac power from the battery bank. Because the Magnum is a "hybrid" unit, I do not need an ATS.

    That is a quick explanation. If you would like more details, send me your email address and I can send you some pictures and diagrams.

    Good luck! Dave

    I found a much better way to run solarcwires using the vent pipe in the bathroom. See my post n the thread

    No new information on the solar wire run. It seems you either go down the vent for the refrigerator or drill a new access hole. I’m considering drilling a hole over the little closet by the curb side twin bed and going dow the back of that with wire molding. Much closer to the electrical compartment under that bed. I’ll put a combiner over that hole on the roof.
