Smile 19' core wiring schematic

Does anyone have a core DC wiring schematic for the 2019 19'?

For example, below is under the front u-shaped bench seats, on the street side, next to the DC disconnect switch.



These are two circuit breakers. Suspect the top breaker is a Type 1 auto resettable, which keeps trying to put voltage on the brakes when breakaway switch gets activated. Suspect bottom breaker is a type 2 - which would reset if you remove the battery.

What are the breaker ratings? 40A?

8 AWG darker red wire on top breaker left terminal goes to the battery. Bottom left 8 AWG red wire on bottom breaker left terminal goes to the DC disconnect switch, which eventually goes to the WFCO 8955 + bus.

Note the #10 wire between the breakers - which carries all the current from batteries to DC distribution panel. ABYC 2018 says #10, 105C can carry 60A, but am surprised to see it between the #8 wires.

What are the other wires? Is the smaller wire on bottom breaker right terminal for the battery to power the breakaway switch for the wheel brakes? is the smaller wire on the bottom breaker left terminal for the CO2 and propane detector?

From image below, there are 5 DC branch circuits, 4 on top protected by a 15A fuses, and one on bottom protected by 30A fuse.



Am also looking for a listing of items on each DC fuse in the WFCO panel. Is the 30A for our Dometic DM2663 refrigerator? Is the "12V" circuit for all the DC outlet and USB charger panels scattered about the trailer?

Searched forum for wiring diagram and wiring schematic, but could not find any diagrams for 19'.

Would save lots of time if someone has a schematic. :-)

There are probably less than a dozen front "U" dinette E19 Escapes so wiring maybe model specific. Have you tried contact the factory Do you have solar or dual six volts or an inverter, all of these would incorporate different wiring schemes.

I didn't think schematics existed, for any model or configuration.

The only schematics that I know the existence of are on the walls in ETI's factory. They consist of white-painted plywood with colored lines and notes, to illustrate what color, gauge, and circuit purpose, and nails at bends. This all is to make the looms for each trailer. Since there are a plethora of wiring variations due to all the options (hence: the nails and notes), no one master wiring diagram exists.


In some build photos, you can see the wiring drawings on the walls behind the trailers. E.G. below:

From the factory, I received the "options" sheet showing where all the lighting and outlets can go - both AC and DC.

We have:
- dual solar
- 6V batteries
- inverter
- 8 Captain's lights
- front and back outside bellyband lights
- power awning with LEDs
- 3 exterior 12V/USB outlets
- 3 additional interior 12V/USB
- Zamp solar inlet
So I understand that each trailer, depending on options, will be different. For example, we have two battery feeds - #8 unfused wire that goes from battery to goSolar charger, AND separate #2 wire with 200A battery-mounted fuse that goes directly from battery to inverter.

However, I suspect every model has the basic two circuit breakers and wiring shown in the image - somewhere near the disconnect switch.

I had typed a searing retort to what I saw wrong with the wiring in these pictures but backspaced it - if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

You might want to read 12V issues - it will give a head start.

Then I have nothing to say !

I gave it a shot based on your options and the pic you posted. The 40 amp fuse should be in the battery box. I think someone made a mistake when they wired your trailer.

Here is how the wiring should have been. By moving a few connections around, your wiring can be corrected to this. I would change the Maxi fuse in the battery box to a 60 amp.

Steve made a partial wiring diagram for his specific trailer, a 15':
Escape Trailer Owners Community - Downloads - 15A Wiring Diagram

Details vary by model, by year, and by options, but that might be a reasonable starting point for someone who is willing to travel their wiring and modify the diagram where it is different.
