Wiring diagrams? and 2 "simple" questions

So I reached out to Renegade in hopes of getting a wiring schematic for my new to me coach; so far ......<crickets>. Guess I'll try calling REV tomorrow and see if I have more luck.

Meanwhile, I'm prepping for a solar install and battery swap, and have a few basic questions about my current battery bay.
1. Off my Battery Isolation Manager there are two small gauge power taps. One is labeled Kenwood the other (possibly the CB) is unlabeled. I suspect that the Blue and Green tabs are just noise filters - can you confirm?
2. The other photo with the yellow switch has one power feed labeled Firefly, any idea what the other feed supplies?
3. In addition to a T-Fuse, my last rig had a primary disconnect switch between the Inverter and the battery bank. Any idea why Renegade doesn't include a switch?

Thanks guys, and I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.

The blue and green items are Fuse Holders.

Maybe they were confused since there is no such thing as a "wiring schematic".

There are schematic diagrams - that show how components are electrically connected; and wiring diagrams - which show how wires are physically run and connected with wire colors and pin-outs.

Unfortunately, what you normally get from RV manufacturers doesn't meet either definition.

Not exactly sure if this is the question you are asking but those two yellow tabs open up a fuse block where there are I believe four fuses that feed those other wires. Steps, hose reel. electric reel, aqua Hot are my four, your my differ.
Hope this is what you were asking.

On my 2019 Verona the Green fuse holder was for the coach door lock key pad. It quit and it took the dealers mechanic all day to trace the wire back to that blown 15A fuse.

3. No, and it is very annoying not to have a battery cutoff switch. I'm planning to install one between the battery and the buss bar. Maybe a battery monitor (shunt) too.

See Renegade wiring diagram files attached. These used to be available on a Renegade "docs" web site that they took down. Not true schematics but they help.

Note below pertains to a 2018 Verona 36VSB, which is wired per above diagrams.....

The battery cut-off or coach battery isolate with located adjacent to entry door stair well, doesn't truly isolate the coach batteries. Only isolates the coach batteries from the DC power distribution panel. The inverter continues to be supplied with 12VDC even when the coach batteries are isolated. The inverter is always drawing current from the coach batteries as it is constantly looking for any AC load. This draws a good amount of parasitic current and will drain your batteries while in storage.

Shame on Renegade for the fake coach battery isolation switch.
Ask just about any dealer and they won't know what the battery isolation switch actually does and doesn't due.

I installed a true battery isolation switch.

On my Winnebago when I turn the isolation switch off it does not disconnect the LP detector. I would imagine it is a safety thing.
