I am basicly only going to be camping where there are 110v hookups so I might go 110v only. I need pro/cons. :)

Do both (12 vdc, 120 vac)on the off chance you go somewhere without power. It will be handy for lights and fans if nothing else

Most RV stuff works on 12V. So I think the best thing is to use both 12VDC and 120VAC plugs when you need things that will only rum on 120.

I used an inverter for the things that require 120 when there is none available. That way there is always 12V from the batteries.

I've had RVs in the past and they were all 12 volts with a battery charger/power converter that charged the batteries and ran all the lights and stuff when you were plugged into 110AC. That is what I'm planning to do in addition to maybe one 110 outlet in the galley area.

If you go dedicated 110 AC all the way, you have no option and you are required to have AC. Just my "opinion"

Going to wire mine with both 120 and 12vdc. Will have a battery charger running off 120vac to keep battery charged to run lights and small stuff but will have 120vac available in cabin and galley for convienence.
