Sorry for the long delay in updates, I have been way way way too busy to do this for the last 10 days or so.
So I started / finished up the 120 volt electrical:
Wired in speakers I ended up not using:
And built a non-NEC approved but functional and safe cover for this 3-pole 2-throw switch:
This is how I switch between inverter power source and grid power source (and future gen power source). This switch was off West Marine, and was like $130. It shuts off one source before it engages the other source so they can all be on when you switch, and it switches so quickly that it doesn't really interrupt the power more than a brief flicker.
Here is the electrical all wired up:
1000 watt inverter to run fridge and phone chargers etc while driving, worked like a charm. I don't have the 2 gauge leads to it in the picture, I did those really quickly at 3 am and they don't look as good so I dont want to show you guys
Metal c-channel wire cover things put back up:
Front bus panel back up sloppily:
These accent lights were a great idea. $16 for 3 meters and they run off 12 volts:
And many more colors than that.
It poured and poured for 4 days straight right before we left for Memphis (5/1) and a lake formed where I was keeping my bus, so I had to make a bridge over annoying waters:
Stopped at a truck stop, this thing looks tiny compared to 18 wheelers:
Mismatched headlight, one halogen and one HID; one of the HIDs burned out cause the OEM Thomas connector shorted out:
Sleeping arrangement: my hammock mounts were used by 2 people, for 4 nights. They loved it.
At the campsite in Memphis, TN; across the street from Elvis' Graceland mansion:
Enormous bus next to us, they had 5 a/c units on the top. They didn't come out much.
The music fest was unbelievably incredible.
Health food bar, we later cooked vegetables in the bacon grease:
Beale street: Facade of an old building held up with girders, very very cool place:
Sunset on the Mississippi River:
Sunrise on the Appalachian mountains while driving to Asheville on I-40 East. We left Memphis 11pm Sunday and got to Asheville 9 am Monday.
White line fever:
All-essential hula doll:
