OK. I've been pouring through all available data on my 1985 Pace Arrow G31 and I'm left with a couple questions. These might be make model specific so I hope there's another Pace Owner on here. There are two switches in the bathroom on the cabinet at toilet level. Any idea as to what they are supposed to do? Also instead of two six volt batteries powering the home amenities I have two twelve volts. Is that a problem?

 Seth, WELCOME good questions  "Also instead of two six volt batteries powering the home amenities I have two twelve volts. Is that a problem?"

 Its NOT a problem. It's how many who don't dry camp often operate and I did myself for years. The thing is those cheaper so called RV/Marine 12 volt batteries sold at Walmart (IF that's what they are ???) are at the best semi or quasi deep cycles NOT true deep cycles like Trojan and other 6 volt golf cart batteries BUT HEY THEY WORK FINE just not as well as true deep cycle 6 volters if you do extensive dry camping like we do.

 When the time comes they wear out and IF you dry camp much, Id consider using two 6 volt true deep cycle golf cart batteries in series. I have four of them in series/parallel for 450 Amp Hours of energy storage.

Be interesting to find out from someone what those switches might be...

Nice rear window and bath window, and I LOVE that bamboo wallpaper.  Hope you can save it :-)  Sigh, mine had nothing so charming.  

I think the 6 volts are preferable as they are more heavy duty and stand up better to deep cycling, but ultimately (imho) if they are in good shape you should work with what you have.  Sometimes it's a space issue?  I think the 6v can be taller...

Good luck, look forward to hearing about your progress!
