I know the cool kids are doing it. Ask them, bottomline, no religion, why. Await an answer.

I have solar on all equipment that sits for long periods with sunshine on it. Greenhouse, Trailers, offroader, the gator, tractor, game cameras... Not in the MotorHome. It lives inside.

Get an ags,
Automatic generator starter.
Cheap and easy install. Priceless usability.

The surge protector is a nicety, not a necessity.

Tpms is a very very good thing to have.
But
It is NOT a definitive you watch like a souffle.
It is to glance at on occasion and to set off an alarm during an abnormality.

Invest, right now, in a good inexpensive handheld type tool box and load it with various sealant, both tape and tube. Keep it in the rv. Do a scheduled walk arou d and ladder climb.
Agree with everything except the surge protector is a nicety. I blew an A/C because of a power surge and fluctuation - $800 and in a separate incident melted the power cord to the RV - cost $150. I will not hook up at any camp without my surge protector.

You need to add to your excellent diagram:
Automatic generator starter
Solar to regulator
Regulator to batteries.
Emergency transfer switch
alternator.

Why did you choose the dirt devil instead of the dometic or another brand?

Looking tha the electrical diagram that you posted, I don't know how the battery isolator can isolate the coach and chassis batteries, since they are connected together on the same side of the isolator.

Dirt Devil RV Central Vacuum System Install

Another "must-have" Mod has bit the dust. I selected this unit because it was recommended to me by a good friend who had one for the past 3 years in his WS 29M!!

So do you need to lift the seat to give the exhaust air a pathway out of the compartment?
