There are automatic relays (and sometimes manual switches too) to either transfer the load among the three sources or control how power is used. In addition, you have the Surge Guard power monitoring system that verifies proper (usable) power, something few site-built homes ever has (or needs). It can be a bit daunting until you learn how these automatic systems interact.

You are correct sir. I need to school up on that. Most difficult thing is to figure out where everything is. Now that I have a place to spend time working on the Bounder I can figure out what is what etc. I have extensive wiring diagrams of this coach. So far most of the interactive between coach and chassis diagram stuff has been worthless. I had some issues with the safety relays for the slide function and we could never find the relay. Fleetwood had no idea where it was. So after 28 hours on the shop clock at the dealer having a guy look for the location of the relay they gave up and just wired in a whole new circuit. But, we do think the relay is possibly placed in the wall behind the sink or fridge.

Bounder has zilch instructions available for anything. Anything Iíve learned is via forums or osmosis. A owners manual would be helpful but could of cost the builder a couple bucks so no dice. LOL.

On the left side of the Magnum Energy display are 2 LEDís. The top one will be green if the inverter is on or dark when it is off
