Here is the standard PC power system wiring for the last few years.



Where you add an Energy Management System



System with solar arrays and charge monitor.

I'm sure the electrical systems are identical in 2011-13. I just said 2552 since that is what I have. The 2008 models had different Inverters & Converters but basically the same system with 12v batteries.

Just an update, the converter in our 2013 2910s, is from Progressive Dynamics, model PD9270 with 1250 watts.

Keelhauler,

Thanks for putting together the schematic.  I think I have a good understanding of my 2010 2551 wiring but it seems different from your schematic in one area.  You show three 12V lines going to the generator through circuit breakers, what would that be for?  On mine, those circuit breakers feed three things directly without going through the converter fuses; the slide, the maserator pump, and I forget the third.

keelhauler, were the diagrams provided directly from PC-USA, or did you draw them up?

I traced the wiring and drew them up.

I thought that those 3 wires that go through the breakers were for the Generator controls, but you may be right, they could go to the slide and macerator. I'll have to disconnect and see where they actually go. The same setup was in my 2006 2551. Maybe only one goes to the Generator.

You are a very determined and thorough PC owner.  Anyone with your model and year (2012 2552) would surely benefit from your efforts.

I would assume wiring will vary pending model and year.  I believe my 2007 2350 is different than one made a few years later, given some things were dramatically relocated, for example the furnace moving from the driver side to the passenger side of the rig.  I also assume that a rig with a slideout will be different than one without.  But then again, schematically speaking there might not be any difference.

I checked my 2010 2551 today and found the following.  The three circuit breakers shown going to the generator in your schematic go to the Sani-Con pump (20A), the slide motor (20A), and the third is the charging line from the engine battery/alternator (40A).

I hope this doesn't come across as being critical, I appreciate your schematic, just wanted to help it to be accurate if your PC is in fact wired like mine.

I am greatly impressed with your work on the schematics and and Bob Bander's follow-up on the breakers.  You two have filled a real need.

Thanks a lot, I revised the drawing. My unit has 3 - 20a breakers & 1 - 40a that I showed going to engine battery, so I assume the third goes to the Generator starter.
