I will take pictures tonight.
I installed the inverter in the cabinet next to the front bed (between the bunk and the dinning room). I secured it to the exterior wall and drilled holes through the floor for the positive/negative battery cables, the 12 gauge 3-wire supply to the distribution panel, and for the remote control RJ45 wire. These holes were all sealed using expanding foam insulation.
The battery cables were wired to the battery cut off switch and the negative terminal. The inverter fuse was mounted inside the battery block on the positive battery cable.
I then installed a 30 amp transfer switch behind the existing distribution panel. It also had a connection for the converter on the same terminal as shore power, so when the inverter takes over, the converter automatically disables.
My entire electrical panel (except converter) is tied into the inverter. We just have to remember not to turn on the electric water heater or AC when on inverter power.
The remote control for the inverter is installed near the distribution panel next to the CO2 detector. 2 more holes in the floor and filled.
All under coach wiring is zip tied to existing lines.
When I get home, I will shoot some pictures of the install.
