I don't see where your frame ground is tied to the battery ground.

If your computer has a DRAW program it would be much easier to follow, label and make changes to your wiring diagram. BTW: The little Camel Humps when wires cross are not needed. When wires cross, unless there is a big DOT at the crossing, no connection is assumed.

The drawing looks good. BUT, I would add more 120V outlets. At least 2 outlets at opposite ends of the interior, and a weatherproof outlet on the outside so the party lites and radio can be plugged in outside.

Fj40Jim has a great ide? Make sure your outside outlet is a Ground Fault Interupter.

second that outside outlet...

and not just for camping.....I have an outside outlet on my trailer (parked in my backyard)....and I use that outlet quite a bit (trailer is always pugged in parked at home) for all sorts of uses...saves me from running an extension cord at times....and how about vacuuming inside the trailer?...it's easy when you don't have to fight with the cord when plugged inside the trailer

and BTW congratulations for tackling this rewire job yourself....it's all part of the fun of owning one of these rigs....paying somebody else to do what I can do (or learn how to do) doesn't do anything for me...at all.

And the scare about the thing going up in flames???? well that's what insurance is for (and remember to take pictures).

Some how I don't equate an amateur doing selfguided on-the-job training with the "fun of owning", and using insurance as the back-up plan for ones mistakes. I hope this isn't another example of the "Using Common Sense" theory I often hear being bandied about.

And insurance won't be a lot of help if an incident happens when you are on the road or if someone should be injured as a result.

Electrical and LP work is not best learned from YouTube videos or by trial and error, the risks are much greater than any possible monetary loss.

And, in some states, such as Washington, doing you own work of that scope without a required permit, can be illegal, and could result in denial of insurance coverage should there be a fire.

As we all tell our Fire Fighters, "Return Home Safe"
