The only 120ac in that bay is the one leaving the PACS. The battery chargers are next bay over.

As long as you can do the job of the PACS and use the Magnum to charge batteries you are well on your way!

Kiki, it depends on how you install the cables and sub-panel. Here is a quote from 02-09-2014. I have pretty much the whole coach wired up. It has worked flawlessly since then.

The short story is: We changed out my cables, had the front two battery compartments replaced with new rollers and powder coated the steel. I redid the compartment that housed the Iota's and also redid the compartment outside the door which houses the sub-panel. The remote unit is located above the upper dash. It is very easy to understand & operate. This is one of the reasons I went with Magnum.

This was a big project and undertaking which I couldn't of done it without help from Shane, Tom S., Steve Pappas, my father, Gardner, & Thomas R. It took me about 4 months to complete. I haven't really put it through much of a test yet. I did have a problem with the unit initally. I took it to an authorized repair facility and they covered it under warranty. The unit is 55 lbs but not as heavy or robust as an Outback sealed unit. I purchased the Magnum products from iMarineUSA.com. I am very happy with the way things turned out.
