Hello All - typing this up a second time because apparently the post didn't like it the first time!
I have a 2004 Bluebird 7.3L that my wife and I picked up over the summer. We will never go full time with it - primarily a recreational vehicle with some plans to rent it out on a stationary basis. We have completed the interior tear down - glad that's over! - and have built the subfloor, framed walls, and are almost finished with insulation. Before I get much further I wanted to dial in the plans for electrical, plumbing and propane lines to rough in what makes sense. I have a pretty good grasp on most elements of the build, but electrical is where my knowledge and confidence starts to run a little short. Fundamentally these are our plans:
- Will be plugged in to shore power majority of the time
- No solar (we will likely add this down the road, but for now lets say its not a thing)
- Generator on-board - want to setup to run mini-split OR charge batteries via selector switch
- Also charge batteries via alternator while bus is running
- 400AH lifepo4 batteries onboard
- 300AH total daily usage (max, not including AC)
Basically, I want to isolate the AC to only use it when the generator is running if not plugged in to shore power. This allows us to have a smaller battery bank, not worry about solar right now, have a relatively smaller generator on-board, and also charge batteries with the generator when needed.
I've attached a 5 minute sketch of roughly what I would think this should look like - please give your feedback! I'm certain there are errors or holes you can help me to see. You can even roast me... but at least give some helpful feedback in that case
Thank you in advance!
