120 Volt System Session 6: Distribution Center

The distribution center in an RV is similar to the breaker panel in your home as power from the outside source whether it’s campground or generator comes into the panel to a main terminal strip commonly called a “bus bar”. Individual appliances and outlets are connected to this bar through a circuit breaker in the panel as well as the converter which converts 120-volt power to 12-volt to charge the house batteries.
