Ok sorry bob but I didn't get to finishing the drawing of my setup! It's a little detailed an well I got called to help mum with the computer
anyway latest additions to the build/camping setup....
Ark battery box! This is awesome for my camp lighting!! I need to work out what a voltage regulator is and how to add it into the line so I can charge the battery while I am driving, might just get a solar panel instead and have it happening when I setup.
Purchased an ultragauge! Still haven't set this up properly! I will get to it one day!!!
Dual battery link wasn't connected properly! So when I had a flat battery I was all excited cause I has the link switch and FAIL! Well I was told how to install it wrong! Fixed!
Draws are now nearly complete with the installation of some ply to keep things in place in the rear end, and also a power box/panel section which will house a power inverter, 2 accessory sockets, fridge socket. This is all connected via a fuse box. And Anderson plugs to make removal of the draws easy!
Bel and I made a bit of an investment! We finally purchased a decent tent! Well I have to say she bought a decent tent! The oztent rv5 with fly, ground mat, delux front panel, delux side panels. It's the works. And well seeing as she was buying that I got the guys to give me a deal on the foxwing awning with the tent connector!
I also got a high lift jack and shovel holder for the other side of the racks for my bday!
I made up a switch panel to go under the ash tray. It just wedges in.
I since added the switch for the reverse camera too! So now I have the option where the camera comes on in reverse or I can flick a switch while driving an there it is!
Which led me to wanting to change the way my switches were powered and also my accessories.
While I slowly kept adding more and more accessories to the lighter socket, I figured I might be overloading it by now. So I ran a wire from the battery to a relay which powers up a small 6 blade fuse box when I turn the lights on. This box is for switches lighting. I then tapped into a wire I had run into the cab for a previous mod and installed a second fuse box to run the accessories, this is also power via a relay that doesn't flick on until the lighter socket gets power.
Also tapped into the ground of the wire that I ran into the cab earlier and have sent all the grounds back to the battery now, instead of the dodgy job they were before.
Now I just need to tidy up the birds best behind the dash! I can see some custom looms being made!
And that's about all the recent mods for now! I'll try grab some pics this weekend while out camping!
Mods still to come:
Fridge temp gauge
Water tank or the like.
Get the darn tub paint fixed from that stupid hard lid which includes paying to remove and re install canopy
Replace the reverse lights with the prestige Offroad ones
Some work lights off the back of the roofracks
Internal canopy frame
And maybe the 2 other best mods you can do
lock up the front end and make it go fast
hoping for the go fast option before the end of year .... still deciding which way to go!
And I wouldn't mind some bigger driving lights at some stage...
