At some point, I will write a real blog entry about electrical power in my tiny house. For now, I will just share some photos of the process.
For a great read about options for RV wiring including inverters and converters, see this post: http://www.doityourselfrv.com/rv-inverter-install-diy/. My wiring diagram below basically uses RV Inverter Install Method 4 from that post.
Wiring Through Corner (Drill hole in from each side until they meet)
My Wiring Diagram and Notes for my Converter/Circuit Breaker Panel
Wall Behind Cabinets Complete With Wires Coming Through
Start of Mechanicals Cabinet
Water Tank Installed and Strapped Down
Romex Run Through Conduit Elbows
Wires Run Into Fuse Box (110 V on Left, 12 V on right)
Transfer Relay Screwed to Mechanicals Cabinet (Backside Showing)
Inside of Wiring Cabinet (Transfer Relay in Upper Right)
Wires Connected in Fuse box
Wires Connected in Transfer Relay (I also mounted the small Packard PR341 DPDT Switching Relay inside the transfer relay cabinet in the lower right). The thick black cord is 110 V coming in from inverter. The two orange Romex lines are 10 gauge coming into the relay from shore and going back out to the fuse box.
12 volt red and black wires running out to Inverter and thicker, 110 V wire running back in (inverter mounted under counter)
Hope that helps at least a little. More to come later!
