Electrical system in 195RB

Hey! Just got a used Jay Flight 195rb. Does anyone know where the fuse box, converter/charger, and inverter are located in my rig? Thanks!

See attached image for location of Power Center and main plumbing access panel. As far as I know, the 195RB did not come with an inverter, only the converter/charger for the 12V system.

Thanks Ttavasc.

So then only dc systems work in boondock situation. A/C systems only run on shore power I guess. Hmm.

Going to have to change that. I can see a 2000 watt inverter in my future. And a soft start for the ac unit. And some solar panels. And an mppt controller. And while I am there, some new batteries and a new 4 stage charger.

Wow. Getting expensive. Lol.

Thanks for the info. You guys are the best.

That is correct - you'll need shore power or generator to run AC-powered devices. Do you have the larger roof-mounted A/C unit or the standard wall mount unit? We had the standard 8K BTU wall mount and our 2000 watt Champion Inverter generator ran that fine without any soft start. If you have the larger roof-mounted unit definitely install a soft start. I've got a Microair on the 13.5K BTU on our ORV and the 2000 watt Champion can still run it. And yes, it does add up rather quickly. For solar it doesn't need to be roof-mounted. We've got a 200 watt solar suitcase that handles most of our needs when dry camping, plus we installed a DC-DC charger with a larger wire run on our truck so we can get upwards of 30-40 amps charge rate while driving. Spend a little time figuring out your power consumption needs and then look for solutions targeted to your needs.

If you do this will you do a build thread? I'd like to see how you do this since I also have a 195.
