Switched Outlets

I was sitting at the console trying to decide how to wire the console portion of the AC electrical system in the cargo trailer. I knew that I wanted to provide myself with an easy way to shut off a whole bank of power outlets.

 I decided that I would wire the console electrical system utilizing 4 sets of electrical switches and each would control one power strips worth of outlets.  I believe that the switched outlet system will make it easier to control power use inside the cargo trailer as long as I pay attention to where I plug in various items.  Here are some pictures of that wiring process.
