Hi guy's, I've been still working on the Rig Ddubya, I finally flip the switch on all those batteries everything worked great in the RV except for the Fridge. I never connected the white romex in the front compartment that was connected to the WFCO thinking that the fridge breaker was already on that side of the Box where I moved everything too. I'll have to trace things in the next few days. I have some more pics things i've added.

Right now I want to find out how to configure the Victron Multiplus 12/3000 because as you can see its not showing up in the devices list. Battle Born told me they would have everything done and I only have a Mac computer so configuring myself is not an option. I'm thinking of installing Wine on my Mac to allow me to run a windows program.

On another Note I haven't received updates of messages on this port in the last week I'm sorry guys for who left messages i'll try to respond soon.

Not sure why the pic came out sideways
Armando

SR71 Jet Mech, Mighty nice setup you have their I'm the one who's jealous.

I have 2 generators Champion dual fuel and a Smarter tools 2000w pure sine wave inverter generator. I was thinking of adding a plug to the front of the RV to connect one of my generators very good idea by the way. Hey is that pole on the back of your Rig for your cellular?

That's my first upgrade before additional batteries.
What manufacturers electric brakes do you have? I checked a couple of websites and all state or have procedures for manually adjusting the electric brakes snug. They have to be close to engaging as the magnet arm which activates them when braking simply rotates a square cam (with limited movement and height) to push the brake pads out against the drums. So frequent adjustments would be a good idea to compensate for normal wear.

I see no way to power the 15 amp breaker for the fridge from the inverter without also powering every thing else on that bus bar.

That said, I will take some voltage measurements today to confirm or deny.
Ok, I stand corrected. The 15 amp breaker in the power panel only controls the fridge when shore power is connected.
The output of the inverter (romex) is connected directly to the fridge outlet. When the inverter senses A/C (shore power) through it's plug in cord it switches the 115VAC from the 15 amp breaker in the breaker panel to the Fridge outlet. When no shore power is available the inverter sends the inverted A/C directly to the fridge outlet.

Ddubya, You Sir are a Genius! that's exactly how it's connected makes so much sense now. I'm heading at lunch time to the RV and rewire the romex. I'm waiting for Battle Born to open so I can call about the Multiplus and Color control not working.

Thank you for all your help.
