    Thanks Mike, Don't think I need a front camera, but the turn signal idea is interesting.

    Hi! Name is Don Sturgiss @ 323-644-2999.

    I found the prior owner was not an electronics expert. I hope to find tomorrow that his solar charger wiring only lights up his On/Off switch & provides no actual power to his disconnected house batteries. That would explain his decision to disconnect his house batteries from all standard house battery charging/power source wiring.

    I need to both determine what is going on with the solar charging system after it is actually working, verify it can charge the old house batteries he disconnected after his incorrect solar wiring, then connect the remaining house power connections to what should be a working battery+solar charging system.

    It needs to be able to charge on solar before I deal with all other charging issues. To do that requires installing the battery monitor with its too short cable. Aah, what would life be without challenges...

    Then there is the decision to continue using possibly abused house batteries or buy new.

    Mike, Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you, just checked and found this. I am not at home where the clock is but I bought it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They had quite a few.

    Mike,

    Fortunately it is not a "resurrection" of the Eagle. It wasn't dead. So, I am guessing it was in better shape than "Lazarus".

    However, there are a number of maintenance issues that need to be addressed. The most recent PO (Prior Owner) treated it ok, but was somewhat lacking on preventive maintenance and worrying about things that didn't work. He definitely did not abuse it; just kind of ignored some things.

    Meanwhile, I do have a good photo of that schematic. However, the file is 2.7MB and I don't want to post a file that large to iRV2. If I reduce the size, it might lose some of the detail you may need.

    Send me a reply to this PM with your email address and I will send it to you as the original JPG file.

    Thanks for taking the time to read the discussion. I hope you are finding some useful things.
