They must have some sort of rudimentary schematic or how could they have any quality control. I'm retired from the electronics field and I've seen diagrams for the most basic circuits.
I'm installing solar power into my trailer. All I have to work with is a user's manual for the power inverter/breaker box. I wanted to supply power for the AC and microwave but have to pull the breaker box/ inverter to trace the wiring. It would save me hours of time from using a multimeter and tracing the wiring. I still wouldn't be confident that I might miss a branch circuit somewhere.
There's a plug for the solar system and it's connected to the battery and ground and neutral. I have no idea how it's connected to recharge the one stock battery
I need to know this to check to complete my hookup. So far I can run all the 12volt items like fans, lights, radio. I can recharge the stock battery. I've got fuses and breakers a d switches protecting every leg of my system just incase of misfiring.
It would go a lot easier if the company would just release a basic wiring diagram!
Actually FR has very good CAD drawing of every system of every unit they build.... Without them they couldn't get approvals from a myriad of regulatory bodies for systems and components. Just like UL for appliances. They are regulated just like airplanes, ships and buildings. As a matter of fact a Solera dwg was published on the forum for electrical systems, about 7 pages for one model, electric only.
Problem is FR doesn't want to release them, proprietary they say.
