Thanks for the summary David and the installation info Chappy.

I'm curious about the power needs. Is it on all the time and what is the wattage. I wonder if the combination of TV/inverter/Starlink is a significant draw.
Wow, very nice!

Good work. Looks like it was worth the extra effort. :)

That would be fine for everything I want to do. Thanks for the update.

Cool. I look forward to the report!
Good to know, since I have the same Camplite

Not a 21bhs, but it's the only one I know of
Wow, good find!  Looks like an upgrade is in store for me this spring.  ;)
And happy new year to all!   :)

Not sure what's involved doing that in a 21BHS, but I would not want to tackle it in my 16TBS. There are too many wires that run in pretty inaccessible places. Why does the radio need to be moved to move the TV?
Love the cedar look!

Post details of your upcoming mini split installation. I'm going to do that this spring too and get rid of our 9 year old extremely noisy Polar Cub ceiling unit. My dilemma is finding a place for the indoor part in our 16 TBS.
Yes, Paul's fridge is a Dometic and OEM. Dometic makes a wide variety of RV refrigerators!

Nope, no wiring diagrams for either the DC or AC circuits. Get out your meter  ;)

And, don't count on either the fuse/CB label accuracy. I'm pretty sure each person at LL doing electrical installs did not use a diagram either and freelanced much of the work. I visited the original LL factory where mine was made and the electrical install station was piles of wire and fixtures and tools.

Welcome! I'm glad you made it through the gauntlet to join and post. Paul has had a lot of trouble with bots and trolls trying to join and post, so the settings to become a member are pretty tight. I seem to remember him telling me once that hundreds of bots were pinging site every day.

Solar can easily run the camper, except for the air conditioner and microwave. I've used mine off the grid many times for several days with just 100 watts of solar.
