My build is custom, so fitment/wiring is also custom.  I did not have an existing AC outlet.  My shore power connection only goes to my AC/DC charger.  I wired in an AC outlet that plugs directly into the inverter, and an AC outlet on the outside of my camper.  That latter bit is fun at campsites without AC.  People are really confused when I haul out my extension cord...they shake their heads, thinking "that dummy hasn't realized this is a primitive site w/o power"

 

Then I smile when I haul out my Induction cooktop and start cooking outside, plugged into my camper!  

 

:D

I have a 2015 Fleet front dinette. I originally had two Full River GC2 225 Ah 6 V batteries. It was a very tight fit - about an hour and a half to pull stuff out and get the batteries in.  I had to remove some of the framing and most of the sealing. For sale in Oregon, the battery compartment had to be sealed from the living area. Here are the dimensions for the Full River: https://www.fullrive...roduct/dc224-6/ You can install batteries that are about a 1/2" wider - removing the front 1/" guide and and secure them with 1/2" aluminum angle. You also have about 1" more in height, if needed, Length - no more than 1/8".

 

Because of this, I looked at the LifeBlue 200 Ah battery that fits easily in the space, but decided to do a DIY 280 Ah that also easily fits in the space. I don't recommend a DIY unless you are comfortable with electronics.
