Hey Greg,

Just like my LXi, Vantare did a good job of keeping the house separate from the Prevost chassis. Most converters are pretty good in this regard; none want to get into a finger pointing contest with Prevost. The answer is "yes", the bus will faithfully motor down the highway with a failure of the house Power Management System. In the event of a failure, the system is simple to override. Each breaker has a switch which lets the user disconnect the breaker motor drive. With the motors disconnected from the breakers the panel looks like any other passive 120VAC panel.

Here's a few more pics of the 120VAC panel, the motorized circuit breakers, and the Powerlink AS Power Interface Module (PIM) which manages the breakers.
