Need advice on wiring

Postby Kaman » Sun Sep 06, 2015 10:48 am

hello all,
I'm new to the forum and am about to start wiring my teardrop tomorrow. I've read and researched a bunch on wiring but am still unclear about the two different systems. 12v DC and 120v AC. I am not sure if they co mingle or if they stay independent of each other. If they are separate I'm trying to understand if I need to install a converter to charge the 12v or if a charger is what I would need. I understand 120v easily and don't have an issue there as long as it isn't tied in somehow with the 12 v
I searched on this thread but couldn't find any links to a wiring guide.
Does anyone know of a good link I should refer to?

I'm a 12V only guy so I'm not going to be your answer man. But yes, 12V and 120v wires need to be separate.

A lot of builders that have both 120V and 12V systems use a Progressive PD4045 to solve this issue.

You might want to dig through the forum with a search for "Progressive PD4045"
