Did you replace fixtures as well or did you just replace bulbs?

Just the bulbs. I will post a photo of them installed if anyone is interested. I will be in the camper getting it ready this week.

RV Custom Products

Although very poor quality schematics, try this site for a copy of a trouble shooting guide for the subject BCC.

Just got this from RV Custom Products on Friday. Was curious also as to their setup. Hopefully this will lend you assistance.

BCC Drawing

Hi Pete

I to have a 378, and found by accident a schematic, the same as the one from RV Custom Products pasted to the underside of the cover we remove to service the batteries. The only difference is the one on the cover provides more information on the fuses.

In addition I obtained from Geogetown the following schematic of the external wiring to the BCC.

I realize this thread is over 18 months old but I am curious on how things held up.

1-I do not like the set up of the batteries under the stairs and being exposed to the elements when driving and or camped. So how have the batteries held up?

1a.- I thought about adding another storage compartment in front of the entry door as I can find the door to add easy but not the plastic inside to match and putting the batteries inside that compartment.

2.- Has your stock converter been able to charge the four battery set up?

2a- If not what have you gone with?

3. Did you add any monitoring equipment such as gauges?

4. There was some discussion about moving the batteries and confirming the length of battery cables did this occur? and if it did was it necessary?

5. PM me if this is to old to bring to life!

Sparks,
So far so good. I've got the four batteries in there still that you see in the pictures. They have not been moved. They get dirty being under the step like that but that doesn't hurt them any. I'm happy with them where they are.

I used the stock converter for about six months and it worked fine to charge these batteries. The way 12v chargers work pretty much any converter will charge any size bank of batteries. It'll just take longer to charge if you have a small converter. The converter in mine was a 60amp which is plenty big enough.

Later I added a Xantrax LinkPro battery monitor (I made a post about this with pictures). It does a great job of telling me how the batteries are doing.

After that I installed a whole house inverter. The inverter is now the charger for the batteries. The old converter is still installed but just unplugged from 110v. The Inverter only charges at 40 amps but that's still plenty to charge up my batteries.
