Battery Disconnect Switch

Used to shut off all 12‐volt power that supplies RV. When the switch is activated the batteries are disconnected/isolated and no longer supply 12‐volt power to the RV. You will find the battery disconnect switch in the pass thru storage compartment of the 5th wheel and are typically mounted above docking station.
To operate the switch, simply turn the lever to the ON or OFF position. As shown below, a lanyard is attached to prevent the removable lever from being misplaced.

Solar Prep

Alliance RVs are all solar-prepped. The basic solar prep includes a pre‐installed CEP (cable entry plate) mounted on the roof of the RV. The wiring from the CEP will run to a convenient location in the RV in which a solar charge controller can be installed inline.

NOTE:
This will be identified by a label. This label could be in various locations in the RV. If you cannot locate this entry point, please give us a call!alliance RV paradigm 2021 Battery Disconnect Switch User Manual 02

Solar Prep (Continued)

The wiring from the cable entry point will then continue from the pre‐determined controller location to the battery compartment and tie DIRECTLY into the battery. The solar prep is now ready for a solar panel and solar controller. By adding a panel and controller, you will not have a solar charge going directly to your auxiliary battery that will support your 12-volt system. Please contact Alliance RV or your dealer for details on the controller and panel. With the addition of an inverter (we recommend an inverter with a built-in transfer switch) and some additional wiring, the solar power you’ll be receiving can also positively impact your 120-volt system. Consult with your RV dealer for more detail.

NOTE:
Our solar prep and solar option are low voltage systems. For more details or any questions, please contact your Alliance RV dealer or Alliance RV.

Solar Option

Alliance RVs solar option is the complete RV power package. An economical and powerful way to have most of the comforts you need wherever your dry camp. The system features all the components that will allow convenient access to AC or solar power through your breaker panel, and the ability to charge batteries from both shore and solar power. This system is easily expandable into a full‐time system and is lithium battery compatible. For additional details, please contact your Alliance RV dealer or Alliance RV.

Generator Prep (If Equipped)

With Generator Prep, you’ll find that your RV will include the basic wiring and structures needed to install an aftermarket generator. A mounting base, a vapor isolating shroud, an electrical transfer switch, and the associated wiring are in place. We recommend you work with your dealer and/or Alliance RV if you decide to add a generator to your RV.

Generator (If Equipped)

RV generators supply power when you’re away from electrical hookups. These can be permanently installed and are designed to provide power for air conditioners, lighting, and appliances. Alliance RV offers generator prep and full generator options with our 5th wheels.

Starting the Generator

  1. Visually inspect for fuel and/or exhaust leaks. Do NOT start the generator until any fuel or exhaust leak is repaired.

    Starting the Generator (Continued)
  3. If the generator fails to start, cranking will stop in approximately 30 seconds. The status indicator will blink, indicating an over crank fault. Wait 5 seconds for the control to reset before trying again. After 5 tries, let the starter motor cool down for 30 seconds before trying again.
  4. For top performance and engine life, especially in colder weather, let the engine warm up for 2 minutes before you put a load on the generator.

Stopping the Generator

  1. Turn off your air conditioners and any other large appliances.
  2. Run the generator for 2 minutes to allow for a cool down.
  3. Press the control switch into the STOP position.

The Load on the Generator
The power rating on the generator nameplate determines how much electrical load (motors, fans, heaters, air conditioners and other appliances) the generator can power. If the sum of the loads exceeds the generator set power rating, the generator will shut down or its line circuit breakers will trip.
To avoid shutdowns due to generator overload, use the electrical ratings from each appliance to compare the sum of the electrical load likely to be used at the same time to the generator rating. Appliance load and generator power are measured in terms of watts or kilowatts. 1 kilowatt = 1000 watts.
