rv electrical stuff

I was wondering if anyone could give me a quick rundown on the electrical set-up that is typical in most rv's, and What are the pieces of equipment called in the electrical set-up? You may be thinking to yourself that I shouldn't even be attempting any of the electrical stuff in my motor home if I don't even know the names of the devices. I am capable of tackling the electrical set-up in the rv, I rewired my whole home including installing new service entrance and breaker panel. I am just a bit confused about what all the component pieces are called?! I would like to upgrade the set-up as the current set-up is a 30 amp and takes up a ton of room. I hear the newer equipment is much smaller?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks
Russ

I am constantly amazed at the sheer volumes of information you can find on the internet. It almost seems like its a skill all in its own to find it though.

Russ,
Be sure to read about the special grounding requirements for circuits in MHs. These circuits are not wired the same as a conventional home.
Best of luck to you!
Jim
