Wow...what an awesome weekend - 70 both days. Wow, thats all I can say. I was actually hot in short sleeves. Unfortunately, I have 1,000,000 other things going on OTHER than the RV. So I barely got a chance to work on the project. To move forward with the wiring, I needed to mount the E-Bus, Avionics Bus and Auxiliary battery bus diodes. I put some little heat sinks on them just in case and mounted them on the forward side of the subpanel, above the map box. The subpanel should provide a lot of heat sink capability also.


I started to wire up some of the diodes to the main buss and other busses.


Whats this wierd wire coming off the bottom of the main fuse block? Well, it is the wire that goes to the pullable alternator field circuit breaker. The loop in the wire is actually a fusible link. The idea here is since I am using a circuit breaker, I will have an unfused wire all the way to the panel. Not such a good idea, since anywhere between this fuse block and the breaker that this switch could be grounded could cause issues. So, a fusible link is put in. AeroElectric Bob wrote about how to make them better than I can explain, so check this out: http://www.aeroelectric.com/articles/fuselink/fuselink.html.


I also put a fusible link on the positive end of the auxiliary battery terminal for the same reason.
