I get asked a lot of questions about electricity in RVs, and while my background is not as an electrician, I have gained knowledge of the RV systems through trial and error.
Electricity and RV’s are a bit complicated. The main reason it can be a bit difficult to follow is because unlike a regular house that only has AC power, the RV runs AC and DC components.
Just to confirm the terms here, AC means alternating current (2 way current) and DC means direct current (one way current). AC comes from the power lines and DC comes from batteries.
What in the world is going on in this diagram? I see power coming in, and then I see batteries providing power. Then I see all of these funny little convertor and invertor boxes.
