So after much screwing around and slowly gathering the parts I needed, I have completed Phase I of my electrical upgrade. Replaced the single 12V Group 24 battery with two new Energizer 6V GC2 batteries from Sams Club. I also took the opportunity to install the new batteries into a side mount toolbox. Got this idea from someone on RV.net (Gilldawg79
, I think) and lots of advice from my pal Roy Braddy
. Thanks to both of you for the ideas and help.
For now, I am using the old wiring to the converter but Phase II of my plan is to replace that and lay the groundwork for a 1500-2000W pure sine wave inverter that I will install in the forward storage compartment.
Phase III will include the new inverter, power monitoring panel, and completing the replacement of the standard lights with LEDs. I've done a few but I need to just finish that work.
