The electrical was a lot of fun. Got to learn some things along the way. I used a regular household breaker box. It takes in the 30 amp plug and distributes it to the bus and to the charger/converter.

The charger/converter is a 45 amp. I don’t have a battery bank yet, but I will soon. Right now, it is just converting some of our 12 volt stuff. I have it running up into a fuse box in the bus. That fuse box then distributes the 12 volts to the stereo–the original bus speakers actually sound pretty decent, so I’ll keep em’ for now–to the lights and a handful of other 12 volts things.
We ran a lot of 110 outlets because I know I won’t be able to run it easier if we want more later. We even ran one to the drivers seat. I plan to build a convertible computer desk into the drivers seat so I can have a small office when we are parked and I can even play games with the help of sites like mycsgoboosting.com/guides.
If I were to do anything different, I would order my terminal ends online in bulk. I had to buy a grip of misc. packs to get enough yellows to wire everything up. I’d also wait till I had help to pull the wires. That was a bear to do by myself. My seven year old daughter helped for a while–which was awesome!–but I could have used more help.
