Power Cord

  • DO NOT plug your RV 50‐amp shore cord into any receptacle that is not wired to National Electric Code for 50 amp 120/240V configuration. Doing so will supply the RV with the incorrect electrical power causing extensive damage to the electrical system and 120‐volt components which would not be warrantable.
  • DO NOT disconnect the 50‐amp male plug connection by pulling up on the cord. This will cause a loss of neutral and 240 volts AC will be supplied to the electrical system and 120‐volt components causing extensive damage which would not be warrantable. Always pull straight out on the head of the cord so all 4 prongs disengage the receptacle simultaneously.
  • DO NOT plug in or unplug the shore cord while under load. Make sure all 120‐volt components are turned off prior to connecting or disconnecting the shore cord or damage to the 120‐volt systems may result. Turn off the breakers at the power center first before connecting or disconnecting the shore cord to prevent damage.

WARNING

  • FAILURE TO PLUG YOUR 50 AMP POWER CORD INTO A RECEPTACLE THAT IS NOT WIRED TO THE NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE FOR 50 AMP 120/140V CONFIGURATION COULD LEAD
    TO AN INCREASED RISK OF PROPERY DAMAGE, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
  • IT IS IMPORTANT TO INSPECT THE POWER CORD FREQUENTLY FOR DAMAGE. IF DAMAGE IS FOUND, HAVE THE CORD REPLACED IMMEDIATELY

WARNING
EXPOSURE TO VOLTAGES HIGHER OR LOWER THAN A NOMINAL 120‐VOLTS, WILL DAMAGE OR SHORTEN THE SERVICE LIFE OF THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND APPLIANCES. THE 50 AMP 120‐VOLT 60HZ AC ELECTRICAL SYSTEM CAN BE POWERED BY AN OUTSIDE 120/240‐VOLT 60HZ UTILITY SERVICE LIKE THOSE COMMONLY FOUND IN CAMPGROUNDS OR BY 120/240‐VOLT 60HZ GENERATOR POWER

WARNING

  • MAKE CERTAIN THE EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE YOU CONNECT THE POWER CORD TO IS A PROPERLY WIRED 50 AMP NEMA 14‐50 RV RECEPTACLE AND NOT 240 VOLT AC. PLUG INTO 50‐AMP SERVICE ONLY
  • CIRCUIT BREAKERS AND FUSES WILL NOT OFFER COMPLETE PROTECTION OF THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IN THE EVENT OF A POWER SURGE OR VOLTAGE SPIKE

120‐Volt Circuit Breakers

Your 120V circuit breakers are in the main power control center. These circuit breakers act just like those in a household in that they protect all the 120V wiring and components. You’ll find the individual circuits labeled to identify which each breaker is for. To reset a breaker, simply flip the switch to the off position and then immediately back to the on position. If the breaker immediately trips again, contact your dealer or Alliance RV for assistance.
Circuit breakers can wear out so an annual check to ensure the operation is good may be needed. Only replace circuit breakers with those of the same specified type, voltage, and current rating. NEVER replace a circuit breaker with one listed at a higher amperage rating.

WARNING

  • CIRCUIT BREAKERS AND FUSES WILL NOT OFFER COMPLETE PROTECTION OF THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IN THE EVENT OF A POWER SURGE OR VOLTAGE SPIKE
  • REPLACEMENT CIRCUIT BREAKERS MUST BE OF THE SAME VOLTAGE, AMPERAGE RATING, AND TYPE. NEVER USE A HIGHER-RATED REPLACEMENT CIRCUIT BREAKER, DOING SO MAY CAUSE A FIRE BY OVERHEATING THE RV WIRING

At the beginning of the camping season, inspect the circuit breakers and replace them as needed. Test by turning each circuit breaker off and back on, circuit breakers are wearable parts and must be replaced as needed as part of your RV maintenance.

12 Volt Fuse Panel
You’ll find the 12‐volt fuse panel in the main power control center (mentioned above). When replacing fuses, please follow these safety precautions:

  • Disconnect the power cord.
  • Turn the inverter off.
  • Disconnect batteries.

GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)

A ground fault circuit interrupter is a type of circuit breaker that shuts off electric power when it senses an imbalance between the outgoing and incoming current. A GFCI is specifically designed to protect a person from electrical shock by reacting to an imbalance that can be as small as 4 or 5 milliamps, when detected, in less than one-tenth of a second the circuit is tripped and shuts off. The GFCI circuit should be tested at least monthly.

  • Push the TEST button. This action should force the RESET button on the recep (engaging the interruption of power).
  • To reset the GFCI to a working order, push the RESET button.
  • If the RESET button cannot be depressed, your 120‐volt electrical will require service –contact your servicing dealer immediately.

Lithium Battery
The Renogy Smart Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery enables auto‐balance among parallel‐connections and provides more flexibility for battery connections. The integrated smart battery management system (BMS) not only protects the battery from various abnormal conditions but monitors and manages the charging/discharging process. The state‐of‐the‐art battery cells ensure a long cycle life and exceptional discharge performance.

WARNING

  • DO NOT PLACE TOOLS ON TOP OF THE BATTERY.
  • PLEASE KEEP THE BATTERY OUT OF THE REACH OF YOUNG CHILDREN.
  • PLEASE WEAR PROPER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT WHEN WORKING ON THE BATTERY.
  • PLEASE USE INSULATED TOOLS WHEN WORKING ON BATTERY.
  • DO NOT WEAR JEWELRY OR OTHER METAL OBJECTS WHEN WORKING ON OR AROUND THE BATTERY.
  • PLEASE ENSURE ADEQUATE AND SECURE MOUNTING OF THE BATTERY AND ALWAYS USE SUITABLE HANDLING EQUIPMENT FOR TRANSPORTATION.
  • DO NOT DISPOSE OF THE BATTERY AS HOUSEHOLD WASTE. PLEASE USE RECYCLING CHANNELS IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS.

Battery Safety Information

  • Please keep the battery away from water, heat sources, sparks, and hazardous chemicals.
  • DO NOT puncture, drop, crush, burn, penetrate, shake, or strike the battery.
  • DO NOT open, dismantle, or modify the battery.
  • DO NOT touch any terminals or connectors.
  • Any uncovered battery material, such as electrolyte or powder, that has contacted skin or the eyes must be flushed out with plenty of clean water immediately. Seek medical attention afterwards. Spillages on clothing should be rinsed out with water.
  • DO NOT touch the exposed electrolyte or powder if the battery casing is damaged.
  • Please make sure any battery charger(s) or charge controller(s) are disconnected when working on the battery.
  • DO NOT connect or disconnect terminals from the battery without first disconnecting loads.

Activation Switch
The Activation Switch is used to switch the battery between active mode and shelf mode.
When the battery is in shelf mode, plug the RJ45 Connector of the Activation Switch into the UP Communication Port of the battery. The LED light on the Power Button will become dim blue to indicate that the battery is in shelf mode. Press the Power Button to activate the battery. The LED light on the Power Button will become bright blue to indicate that the battery has been switched to active mode. Prior to long periods of storage, connect the Activation Switch to the battery using the same method and long press the Button for 3 seconds to put the battery into shelf mode. The bright blue LED light on the Power Button will go dim indicating that the battery has been switched to shelf mode. In shelf mode, the battery has a very low self‐discharge rate and can hold the charge for a longer period of time.

  • Paralleled batteries can be activated simultaneously using the Activation Switch. But if you want to put them into shelf mode, please first disconnect each battery and use the Activation Switch to put each battery into shelf mode.
  • The battery leaves the factory in shelf mode. Please activate the battery prior to first use by charging it or using the Activation Switch.
  • It is not mandatory to connect the Activation Switch to the battery during operation or storage. Users may take it off after battery mode switching and keep it properly.
