Drawer Set up
I had my eye out for drawer set up for a long while that was going to accomodate my needs to carry multiple moto bags, jerry cans, tools, bikes and wheels, hiking packs etc. but struggled to find something affordable that ticked all the boxes. I had looked at the Kings Titan dual drawers with wings, but I didn't want to sacrifice height when the fridge was in. I looked at side by side set ups with the fridge down low and a full size drawer, but again this limited how much height you could pack in, wasted space behind the fridge, and I didn't like the idea of stowing stuff on top of my fridge. I also wanted to run a fair amount of electronics in the wings with my battery hidden, along with a compressor and air tank. I had seen a few pictures on the net of people building shelf like storage areas over the wheel arch and figured- 'How hard can it be?'.
I decided to go with a Kings Titan single drawer, a fridge slide (which I got off gumtree for $50), and a side shelf that was accessible from the passenger side canopy window. The shelf was made out of a kings wing kit for twin drawers, and cut and shaped to suit the inside contours of the tub.I would build this all on the floor of the garage and test fit, before securing to the vehicle. This is where my pre-prep with the anderson plug shone allowing me to make this totally modular and with 5 large bolts, disconnecting an anderson plug, the whole system comes out.
Single drawer, Basic Panel, Shelf
Power Board with all fuses, DCDC Charger, and +ve and -ve studs.
This means there are simply 2 cables connected to the battery to run the entire system with a 150A fuse. This is also run through a disconnect switch allowing me to turn the entire system off when not in use.
Power board wired to my front electric panel. This is bolted directly to the side of the drawer with 4x 12mm bolts.
Compressor mounted under shelf. There is enough of a gap at the end of the shelf and to the tub edges for air flow. I am thinking about putting some more vents in. This is an AOB compressor. I chose this with the 6L air tank and manifold kit as it had a CFM between the 2 ARB Compressors (single and twin), and was local, reputable, and very well priced.
I mounted lights to each fold up window that are controlled form the switch panel. The 6L air tank sits behind the fridge slide and is out of view and the compressor is also run off the same switch panel, with the help of a 30A relay.
Tank with lines back into the shelf to a Nitto fittings at the main board
Panel has Voltmeter, 2x USB, 2x Cigarette, 1 dedicated solar anderson, 1 auxiliary anderson, Master disconnect switch (which only turns power draw off, the system can still be charged via alternator, solar, or wall with it off), Air compressor outlet, and a Scosche magnetic mount for my phone. The C-Tek AC charger is mounted in the shelf as well and can be plugged in to the wall with an extension cord
Light strip up the front on separate switch accessible from passenger side canopy window, and some extra cig sockets
Loaded up and in use as it is most weekends. Fridge full of beer, drawer full of tools and camp gear, moto gear and everything else to the right
No word of a lie
