Time to start working on the wiringTime to start working on the wiring
I've decided to heavily document this wiring process for my RV using Van's pre-wired wiring harness. I admit that I don't know squat about wiring, so maybe someone out there in RV land can benefit from my electrical adventures. I ordered the Wire Harness 6/7/9 (ES WH 6/7/9 KIT) kit from Van's. Then after looking it over, I realized that I needed the Switch kit (ES WH-SW) and Keyed Ignition Switch as well. These kits have all the switches and fuses I need. After looking at the drawings and instructions for hours, I realized that I didn't have a clue what I was looking at. So I invited my good buddy Norwood over for an electrical consultation. Norwood loves to take things apart to figure out how they work. Once I went over to his house and found him head deep inside his Ford Mustang dash board. He had taken the whole dash out trying to fix a problem with his air conditioner. Stuff was everywhere, BUT he fixed it! I think I've found the right person to help with this electronics thing. He looked at my plans and drawings and understood everything he saw within minutes.

Getting a copy of this great book is not a bad idea either.
