Rear Electrical and Long Wires
I’m sure this has been brought up, but I could find no direct advice.
After initially planning to put all my electrical behind the driver, I now want to save living room space by putting the electrical under my bed in the rear of the bus. I would place the batteries in a sealed container with venting to the outside, and the inverter, fuse box, charge controller, etc would sit next to the container.
One potential issue is that I would have to run a long DC wire from the bus’s alternator/isolator from the front of the bus to the rear. Would it be problematic to run such a long wire? (I would use stranded)
Has anyone built a sealed container for their batteries? One with venting? Would appreciate examples or guidance.
Has anyone else put their electrical under the bed next to their plumbing? — apart from separating the two and raising the electrical above the floor, any other safety considerations?
