The A/C is also run to dry the air so the windshield does not fog up.

If I was doing it I would have put in a power shottky diode as an isolator probably with a very low value resistor. The wire might be enough. That prevents the house battery pack from draining the chassis battery if you forget the switch. Trickle current should not be over an amp or two.

The Shore Charge only works if the is 115 volts AC, AND the switch is in the ON position.

If there is 115 volts, then the converter is charging the batteries. If shore power is removed, the 115 volt relay drops out and the two batteries are isolated again. I'll post the electric drawing in another thread.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Looking forward to the diagrams

IMHO , more owner/operator controls are better than automatic stuff.
And I really like how all the switches look factory original...good stuff.

Safe travels

SWEET install Waiter21... Please count me in on the wiring drawings when you post them. Will you give wire color when you do the drawings? Just FYI: all imports have the a/c run automaticly when defrost is turned on. The rest of the time it's your choice to have it run or not. NICE JOB....!

Makes sense to me. ;-)

The OP posted details of the charge switch (crossover) schematic here:
Making it mine - keeping the truck battery charged while on shore power

Very interesting - using 2 relays to create a cross-over for only when on 110VAC power.

Safe travels.
