[...]Eric, your electrical setup is the same as ours. I believe it was the late 2003 models that got the better electrical setup. Ours is an early 2003. Drat. I would be very interested in what you come up with in changes to the electrical setup.
Steve, I will let you know what I find. During cold weather while I was running electric heat I kept popping breakers left & right. It really honked me off
so I WILL
be taking a careful look at the possibilities.
I'll take my time to see what I have and the access points for electric that are available. Then I'll map out what I think we want so the two of us can go over it. I'd really like to balance some of my load over the second side of the 50AMP supply so I can properly take advantage of the extra power AND convert the 30/20 amp service to true 50/50 amp service.
Plus, I'm slowly going forward with my plans for an inverter so I'll want to have a number of loads automatically excluded from the inverter in case of an unanticipated switch to battery power (power out during a storm while we are not there...) I would like to exclude the water heater electric element, refrigerator electric element, key outlets that we will use electric space heaters with, A/C(s), etc.
I suspect that it will be fun trying to map all of this out onto the accessible parts of the wiring.
Plus, I'll need to find and install a larger breaker box. There are so few breaker positions that came from the factory it isn't funny.
The biggest problem is finding the time to do all of this
BTW: Speaking of wiring in general... last week when I fixed my grey tank leak I noticed that the nuts that hold the grey tank sensor wires on the sensor studs were loose and almost ready to fall off. After tightening them the level readings for that tank almost seems to work!
I guess I should look at the wiring for the sensors for the rest of the tanks.
