Removing converter - installing Victron

Hi everyone. I am getting ready to install a new Victron Multiplus 3000w inverter/charger. I am planning to disconnect and remove the stock Jayco converter and wire the Victron to the same location in the fuse panel (right below F6) that the jayco converter was wired to. Before I start cutting wires, I thought I would run this by the group and see if I have overlooked anything. Thanks for any thoughts and advise!

You haven't labeled anything, that's the most important part of any electrical conversion.

I canít figure if youíre being funny or maybe I just donít understand what you mean.

This is a photo of the Jayco stock setup with nothing changed yet. Jayco labels the circuits on the plastic covers that I removed.

I’m not being funny. I’m an electrician and you will need to label you wires before disconnecting them so you’ll know what they’re for when wiring the new unit.

Yes. Absolutely.

Your electrician-trained brain would have an aneurism if you saw the rats nest of 12V wiring behind the panel. It looks like a mini tornado did the wiring. Fortunately, I don’t need to touch any of that.

Believe me I get a headache just looking at any of the wiring. I’ll probably rewire my entire motorhome after I retire.

Only thing I can think of is to verify the 12 volt wiring to the battery bank is sized correctly.

No need to remove the converter. Just disconnect it from 120v and you are done. It can stay in there.
