My partenr and I are doing a frame off, full gut renovation on a 1974 Overlander. We're building a custom interior and intend to live full time in our airstream with it parked in a single location.
Designing and instaling the electrical system has been the hardest part of the renovation for me. I'm a comitted DIY-er but I started this project with only limited electrical knowledge. The learning curve is steep!
When I started out I found diagrams of other people's electrical sustems really helpful so I'm sharing mine here too. I'd also love to hear some feedback on what I've put together. Fire away with any comments, suggestions, critques.
I should also give the disclaimer that I was learning as I assembled this system and there are a few minor things I would do differently if I could go back in time but im generally happy with how its come together.
The system is built around a GoPower IC2000 Inverter/Charger and a tiny battery (for the moment) because we are going to be hooked up to shore power most of the time. Our intention is to move off grid eventually so we've included flexibility to shift away from shore power in the future.
