Y'all may know I'm considering a 1999 Excella 34.
First, I hope you have interest and time to read and consider advising...my apologies in advance for my distorted humor...
The TT has 30 Amp service.
Lovely bride has informed me, "AC #2 needed before WE camp...! "... uh... "Sure, honey!"
Sooooo.. I am considering upgrade to 50A and new Penguin 13.5k. SOMEHOW ...
I THINK I want to have things appear to be 'factory'...one of my many disturbed character flaws...
I've seen other posts where great work was shown 'done'... but, I have been unable to find a video or post that shows HOW to route and avoid ribs or pinch points..
I know the reason I haven't found it is because of my lousy SEARCH ability...so I beg your understanding..
So, with surviving nearly 59 years, I've finally learned a new skill... ASK questions!!!!
Rather than just ask "Please, tell me how.." while I sit back... I've put some thought into it just to amuse you guys..
Having "decent" Home building/repair, Auto, Marine, Motorcycle, Airplane wiring skillzzz.. I thought to put some steps together..
Without further ado/angst, for your reading practice and amusement/disgust, are some steps (abbreviated where I think y'all would be too bored).. and so, we begin....
1- freak out...crawl over to this website and search for a couple days...
2- locate/procure Penguin
3- DOCUMENT existing wiring in Square D (SqD) electrical box
4- Disconnect power lead from SqD, tie on 'fish tape' or strong nylon cord or another flexible and strong wire to PULL the NEW lead back into the SqD(existing lead has had some overheating, is 14 years old and I want to replace anyway)
5- carefully PULL the 30A cable from TT
6- carefully connect new 50A lead to Fish Tape, then, feed/push cable from exterior while 'helper' (Lovely Bride) pulls the "fish tape" to route the new cable
7- install proper MAIN 50A breakers in SqD for the 50A (GFCI if possible) (replace SqD with 50A Box if necessary???
8- properly secure new main cable to SqD breakers (ensure there is SEPARATION of Neutral and Earth Ground ... SHOCKING!!
9- ADD new 20A breaker in SqD for AC#2
10- REALLY FREAK OUT>>>
NOTE: At this time of intermission and a 2 Quart homebrew(not this morning, when I have the Excella in a compromised position), I ask you:
"How do you recommend routing the AC#2 power up to where the FanTasticFan will disappear?
Suggestions....after removal of FFan...
A- using Fish Tape, wiggle it from FFan vent opening, carefully, over to the SqD?
B- pull the new supply using the FFan DC wiring? not sure where it runs in the hull wall.
C- run conduit on inside ceiling wall?
Thanks for taking time to read and appreciate your suggestions and yes, tauntings...
Peace and blessings,
