As the weather is starting to turn cooler here in South Carolina, I wish I had build a pole barn years ago to work on my projects inside. I have removed everything of the top of the Nomad camper and repaired the holes. the vent pipe for the kitchen sink will go out the side of the camper as it will be the only plumbing in the camper. I am doing away with the inside bathroom and replacing the toilet with a port-a-potty for move room and camp grounds have public showers and restrooms. the AC and heater will be a inside stand alone portable unit, again to allow for more move and also to take the weight off the roof. next I'll be working on electrical. this is a challenge for me. Now do you keep the AC from feeding back to the battery when AC and DC are wire to the same plug or light? or do I run one on one side of the camper an the other on the other side of the camper and keep them separated. I'll figure something out to kept it simple. Till next time, in joy life it's short.

When you have an a/c  and a d/c  wired into the same light fixture,, That just means you have a DUAL light,,, one side is 110,, the other is a 12v.  and YOU DONT TIE THEM TOGETHER.

Just take the 110V wire and put in a ceiling mounted plug. and take your 12V wire and wire in a single 12v overhead light,, Or you can just teminate BOTH sets of wires. And DONT tie each wire to EACH other,,Thats called a direct short,, isolate each wire and cover/teminate. And you wont have a so-called feedback,,a.k.a. direct short..

Tags,, are short cuts to SEARCH for a particular subject.  Example,,,Sink would be tagged, as plumbing..... Lights be tagged,, electrical and so forth.
