With hundreds of detailed photographs and step-by-step diagrams, author Andy Johnson provides expert advice on understanding electrical circuits, keeping batteries charged, finding faults, installing new equipment, hooking up to shore power, grounding and bonding, safety issues, renewable energy systems, and much more.
