Quick electrical update:

Added a 20 amp marine inlet for the rooftop a/c. It runs to its own 20 amp breaker and that runs to the rooftop unit.

The 30 amp twist lock inlet runs to its own 30 amp breaker before heading to the inverter/charger. The AIMS inverter/charger called for a 45 amp breaker there but I couldn't find a single pole 45 amp breaker. I figure with a 30 amp plug I can play it safe with a 30 amp breaker.

I will install a 25 amp breaker between the inverter and the load center for the 110volt which is what Aims specifies.IMG_20181012_100147.jpegIMG_20181012_100156.jpegIMG_20181012_100215.jpegIMG_20181012_100249.jpegIMG_20181012_100253.jpegIMG_20181012_100301.jpegIMG_20181012_100257.jpegIMG_20181012_100314.jpeg

On another note, I forgot to label my 110 wires as I pulled them through the conduit. I have just one wire that needs to go to a 20 amp breaker. Can I use a 12 volt light connected to one of the lines to check which wire it is? I have three runs in the conduit, so I figure I'll attach a light to the that is sticking out and take a 9 volt battery to see which one it is? Would that work?

Yep.
Or use a multimeter with an ohm gauge, but then you would need a long lead on the ohmmeter to reach each end of the wire. Your way is easiest.

Thanks Gnome! I don't have my 110 run into the load center yet. Thanks for that affirmation

Using the ohmeter you just ground each wire at one end, then check each wire to ground at the other end. No need for long wire in between.

I'll start a new post about this in the electrical section and add pictures, but:

Pretty sure my bus is all mechanical. I'm pretty sure I've narrowed down which relay is for the blinkers. Now, except for hooking up a hazard flasher relay are there any relays I should keep?

So if I understand that correctly, I can probably remove all this garbage?
