2023 White Hawk 29BH Solar

Hey all new here. My 23 WH 29BH has the JayCommand, is pre-wired for solar on top, and also has the solar on the side. I took the wall panel off where the sticker was and just see some weirdness with the wiring. Things like black wires hooking to the same place as red wires, a bunch of blue “data” looking cables that don’t plug in anywhere and one has a jumper installed, the battery disconnect is reading backwards according to my meter when hooking up red to red and black to black. Also this camper is pretty loaded and looking at the wiring diagram in the pic it calls for 2-30s, 1-20, and 1-15 amp. Mine are actually 3-30s and 1-20 amp breaker so you would think they’d put a correct diagram there. Even the stuff isn’t hooked up in the order they say on that diagram lol. Everything electrical works properly from what I can tell. See pics

Also my battery disconnect is odd. I am currently hooked up to shore power 50 amp and the light above the disconnect works until I turn the switch then it goes off. My thoughts were that disconnect only shuts off the flow from the battery to keep it from draining. So if I am hooked up to shore shouldn’t that light stay on either way? Sorry it’s 3am here and we are leaving for a trip Saturday morning and I still have to install my BougeRV MTTP controller and the 200W BougeRV CIGS solar panel before we leave. I just put a 2nd battery up front as well in parallel for some extra energy to run the 12V fridge longer. Had an issue last time I took it to the shop for warranty work they left it unplugged from shore and killed my battery. So I had 2 new ones here already from my boat trolling motor that I haven’t installed yet so camper has them now.

Try editing the size ever so little and they should load correctly.

So I guess since it was so late last night I forgot to ask opinions on how to hook it all up. I guess run the +PV from the lug and -PV from that cable “fitting” it’s already installed in to the Solar Controller. Then from the solar controller battery output back to the battery wires? Do you all see any thing that would concern you from the pics?
