It all depends on how you intend to make your build. Obviously 12 volt is already throughout your bus and you can simply tap leds into the system and use considerably less power. However you've got to remember that the power is coming from your engine battery.
If you're intending to go out into the boonies remember that your systems need backups, and your backups need backups.
What's not wasted man hours on there? Ok there is a few that are good videos.
Id rather not tie into the bus battery. Id like to have shore power with solar back up or visa versa.
At this point its all new to me. I am slowly getting it but still confused in spots that's were the detailed book / video comes in. I guess by detail I mean a dummy down version that explains step by step kind of like the dummy books but they don't have RV power that I could find. Not dummy videos of dummies... those are a dime a dozen.
So Id have shore power with solar back up or visa versa and then lantern / candle and campfire.
If those back ups don't work hopefully I was smart enough to camp next to a lake or river and id just toss the line back in and suck it up and suffer through a bad day of relaxing and fishing until help arrives
