There have been a few blogs about this hydrogen conversion system. A little physics lesson. We can never create energy nor destroy energy, all we can do is convert energy from one form to another. The engine in your rv converts chemical energy (gasoline) into rotational energy. The alternator converts rotational energy into electrical energy. The devise you Speak of uses electrical energy to split the hydrogen oxygen bond in water. This is one of the strongest bonds around requiring lots of energy to do. The intrinsic energy loss by your alternator (heat) will negate any gains the produced hydrogen will make.
When I was teaching auto shop I had a student who was convinced that the devise would work. I let him run with his device build and even fronted some materials for his build. My student worked all semester on this project and when ready we hooked up to a carb type chev v8 on a Dino stand. We hooked up to dyno and all needed instruments and ran test after test. When the devise was running, the load on the alternator far exceeded any gains from hydrogen produced. The conclusion my class made, a scam!

Tinker away rockdog
I would be very carefull. While working with my student who tinkered we noticed a big flaw with any system you can get plans for on the internet. They did not allow to seperate the hydrogen from the oxygen. lets see Hydrogen, oxygen, inclosed space= boomage. If your toyota engine backfires just once, the flame will travel up the vacuum line to the seperation canistor and
