Reese -have you already ordered your wrap? I own a graphics company and may be able to help with printing..
I have one quote from a local company for 3K. I already have the finished graphics. I had a new artist work up a new wrap as I did not like my old one and it was a big waste of money. I am waiting on quotes from two other companies. I just need the printing and install.
Hooked up my batteries, inverter, etc. today but my meter was not reading AMPs or AH and I could not program in 2 of the settings. I need to study the user manual for the Trimetric 2025 further then try again. I hooked up my garage refrigerator and deep freezer and there were running w/o issues but without the meter reading the current/amps being drawn or how many AH, I unplugged until I can get the meter working.
The camera would not show the meter numbers/lights.
Just got the information from tech support regarding the inverter and battery bank setup.
I will need (6) “T-105” 6 Volt 225 Amp Hour Deep Cycle Golf Cart Batteries.
Putting my amp hours at 1350 allowing me to be able to pull the full 8000 watts at 666 amp hours.
In order to achieve the 12V necessary to operate the http://www.theinverterstore.com/8000-watt-power-inverter-12-volt.html 8000 Watt inverter I will need to hook up the battery’s series parallel meaning running 3 sets of 2.
Meaning I will need to connect the 3 sets of batteries somehow such as a terminal block or similar so that they are all as one. From that terminal block you can run 4 200 amp fuses to each input to the inverter using 4awg wire (inverter has 4 separate inputs).
Basically the 3 set of battery banks need to be connected 3 into 1 and then the 4 inputs to the inverter need to be fused.
The charger I will need is a smart charger and the Amp out will be determined on how long it will be on to replenish the battery for what you have taken out of it but not to exceed the 25% back into it.
Based on the above, I need to only fuse the positive to the inverter correct?
Found an efficient electric tankless water heater. http://www.amazon.com/Stiebel-Eltron-Mini-Electric-Tankless/dp/B0048EK7BQ/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1307567366&sr=8-4 http://www.amazon.com/Sti…=1307567366&sr=8-4
I will be putting my 2.5GAL point of use electric water heater on craigslist if anyone is interested.
I was trying to draw up a plan in Google Sketchup but you cannot really see detail. So I will just describe my awning design and when I get back home tomorrow, I will build and upload pictures.
The awning is basically 58 3/4″ x 34 1/2″, the outside is aluminum and the inside panel is FRP, between the two pieces of material is a 3/4″ sheet of styrofoam and an aluminum frame made of 1″ aluminum u channel. I will cut out a 4′ x 8″ hole to fit my 1/2″ acrylic tinted window. Real simple. I will run 12v wiring inside the frame and out of a hole for the LED light before I sandwich close the frame.

La comida se ve muy bien.
The food looks great.
man i do love that style of water tank, where did ya get it ?
i always envisioned plopping a 5 gallon water cooler type bottle into that type of opening if i started to run out in the middle of nowhere…..
i would like to carry 100 gallons of fresh water, but need a way to convince the HD that most of that will be going out the window so i dont have to have a 130 gallon grey tank
tires of course, fix any electrical that acts up when jiggled or funky wiring you can see. You could go around an do all the blinker/brake lights or just gets spares and have them on hand. If it doesn’t have an engine temp gauge. I’d add one. they don’t cost much and can save your engine. …. if there is play in your steering wheel or it wanders or pulls, get the front end looked at. When you load it up it will increase the wear on whatever is already needing attention. That’s the basics assuming your engine/tranny are solid. ….it’s late gonna go sleep … good luck
can we get a parts list with links available ?
Yup, I am putting together a manual with all the parts. It is not complete but some parts below.
1-13/16in x 6ft Aluminum U Channel
U Channel 3/8″ W x 7/16″ H x 1/16″ x 6ft (1/4 inner channel)
1/16in x 1-1/2in x 6ft Flat aluminum bar
4ft x 8ft, 1/2in Sheet of foam insulation
First Watch Security 5/8 in. Chrome Cabinet and Drawer Utility Cam Lock
4 x 8 FRP Sheet
My question is when buying a used vehicle. What should I have done mechanically?
Thanks all, StirFryKing
That’s a broad question, and it depends on the condition of your truck. Here’s a few items to consider (I’ll add more later if I think of them)
I’d go through the brakes, and cooling system. It’s far better to spend a little now than to brake down on the road. Replace all the hoses (unless they were done recently and in really good shape) don’t forget the small heater core hoses, take a good look at the radiator and replace it if it has any corrosion. I just got a 1990 P30 and I’m considering doing the water pump as preventative. It’s a pain to do, but again, better now than mid summer on the way to a fair. oil and coolant are obvious, check the rear end oil and tranny fluid (if it’s dark change it). I would NOT let a quicky oil change place change my tranny fluid. I’d do it myself or have a mechanic I trusted do it. It’s not really hard, but attention to detail makes a difference. You don’t want abrasive grit in your tranny. …. continued
Started adding the plumbing to my truck. I did not want to lay the linoleum floor this early but I need it to be in place before I do the plumbing.
I mounted my grey water tank underneath the truck and drilled open a drain through the floor. I need to install all the piping, sink, etc, but below are a few pictures on my progress.
What type of hot water heater, electric or propane. Where did you purchase?
Great looking build. Wish I had the talent.
