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!!

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.

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!
