I was able to get the trailer done enough to camp last weekend. I still need to do all of the electrical for the interior of the teardrop but my trailer lights were working. It rained all weekend and I didn't take any photos while I camped. Here are a couple just before I took off. It has been a nice weekend and I should be working on the electrical/gas springs for the hatch but I am being lazy lol

I have taken a break from the teardrop but about to get started back on it shortly.

I had drawn up my electrical somewhat on paper and in Microsoft paint. Finally took the time to finish/make it look better.

I figured if something breaks in several years or so having a diagram will be easier to repair because I will definitely forget how it all goes lol

The only thing I am not really sure about is how the inverter and PD 40405 connect to the shunt for the battery monitor. I believe I have it drawn out correctly but not 100% sure

I think this way would monitor the watts/amperage draw when not connected to shore power from the inverter 110 and DC side of the PD4045

Just position the shunt at the bank being monitored, so **all** current flows through it.

You're not really connecting any devices to it, they are on the circuit, think of the shunt as a bottleneck.
