Looks great. Can you tell me how you wired it? Hard to tell from the picture. Thanks,

I took the positive wire off the battery and put it on the switch, put one end of the 19" cable i bought on the battery and the other end on the switch

OK, I picked one up at harbor freight today pretty cheap. I'll have to find my own mounting nuts but wanted to know how it's wired? I see that you purchased a seperate 19" battery cable and wanted to make sure I do the wiring correctly. If you don't mind could you post or send me a PM on how to wire it up. I've read where people went off either the negative or positive side of the battery and didn't know if it made a difference.

All,
I picked up a switch at Harbor Freight Tools as well. $1.98 plus tax after discount. Not sure what for, but did not argue. I have a question about battery charging and the converter. When I owned a sailboat, I had a big bold sign by my battery disconnect switch to never turn it off while running the diesel. Is this a problem with RV systems? What happens if you forget to turn on the battery switch and plug into shore power with the converter energized? Will that damage the converter? How about when the trailer is connected to the TV? Sorry for newbie questions, but I want to make sure I do not set myself up for future problems. Thanks.

No one has ever mentioned anything like that, may be wise to call your local dealer.
