What is the best way to learn wiring diagrams for RTU's, heat pumps or any other pieces of complex equipment? Just curious.

Or is this a motor requiring both sides of the power? Look at 1p motor capacitor schematic wiring carefully and absorb. 3p motors will not require run or start caps. Look for wiring numbers on the wire itself matching the schematic.
Hardest part for me, those darn schematics are too small and always faded.
Or outside if it's a freezer....
