There are a lot of different ways of doing, it all depends on your needs and wants. Are you going to boondock, plug in at a camp ground, run a generator? There are a lot of options.

You can get a lot of ideas from the build threads. All I can tell you is there is right way and a wrong way of getting electricity on the bus, this is the wrong way

Will not be on camp grounds. Can't use a generator. In the City will have it parked.

I'm afraid this thread is simply to general to warrant any useful responses. You really need to do some research on this site (and elsewhere) about general electrical and RV/boat electrical. Once you have an idea of your needs you can ask more specific questions, though - again - most questions have been answered somewhere on this site already.

I know it can be difficult to sift through all the information. Google search is much friendlier than Skoolie's search: http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f12/ti...arch-9133.html

Reminds me of my first day at computer school. I asked the Instructor how all those pictures & words got on the computer screen. "Very carefully" was his response.

It didn't take long to learn that those pictures & words are really nothing but a bunch of 1's & 0's.

Read & learn & then read & learn some more and before you know it your questions will become more based on what you are really attempting to know & do.

I know.....I've been on here for over a couple years now and there are still questions I have. I don't ask them because I still can't figure out how to phase my question so as to get an answer that would be helpful to my cause.

So in the meantime, I read & learn & read & learn some more.

I have also found it kind of entertaining on my part to write down the questions I have and as I run across the answer I can enter it in. You'll be surprised at how much you may already know.
