are these electrical diagram acurate? + solar power question

I am new to the RV world, I would like to learn about the electrical side of building a Ford E-250 campervan.

Are these good diagrams to teach me the basics?

Also, is solar power worth it for a Ford E-250 campervan? I'm planning installing two 12v batteries.

Solar is definitely worth it when you are camped for several days in the same spot. With it you do not have to run the engine to charge the batteries or hook up to shore power.
