I'm trying to figure out what the electrical plug on the outside of your bus is for.... im assuming that you can plug in the bus to give it power when it is parked. If so, that is awesome and Could you PLEASE let me know how you did that and what all is involved.
The plug on the back serves two purposes. One side is to plug the generator into the bus to run the rooftop AC or whatever while the other plug is to tap into the battery bank coming out.

I have 3 Optima blue top batteries and a Cobra inverter I got from http://www.partsexpress.com. I actually only use the battery bank for the kegerator, toilet, bathroom light, and stereo, but it could be used for the video displays as well if needed. I usually use my generators for the TVs.

The bus is almost ready for this season. Just need to get it inspected and figure out a battery/glow plug issue.
