Just wish I had room for a basement "central air" arrangement. Nice!

It's been a while, been busy working on my generator, not a lot of pictures. I did get a good deal on a pure sine wave inverter/charger and just got it installed.

It is a bit larger than the old one, but was able to get it in the same spot.



Cables and fuse, batteries are in engine compartment about 3 feet on the other side of wall to the right.



View of the control panel showing that I'm on shore power and batteries are charged.



Still a little dressing of the smaller wires to be done and I still haven't figured out final resting place for the control panel.

Hey Somewhere, Sorry I didn't catch up with you while I was in Lafayette. I will be back, but during the week of Christmas.

I plan to install a similar system for AC in my bus. I'm going to use the Mitsubishi mini split system. I found that they make a ducked unit that is made to fit in the top of a cabinet for their mini split system.

Mitsubishi is one of the very best mini-split units out there. Do NOT buy any units made in China. I wound up throwing five of them in the dumpster.

Mitsubishi is supposedly the best, but LG is also supposedly up there as well. LG also happens to publish all their documentation freely, unlike the very secretive Mitsubishi. :/

I do have to admit that I've become a fan of most things LG.

Got the kitchen counter installed today. Still needs the pipes hooked up. I hated washing dishes in the bathroom sink. Still have to do the window trim and some odds and ends.



Just a little bit of steam punk. Mumsywumsy said she wouldn't like it, after it was all done, she thought it very nice. Took about a week of polishing off and on to get to this point.





Cooktops. Still have to construct a cover for when not in use. There will also be a drop in cover for the sink.



Warm weather is coming, hope to get the generator installed soon.

looks great, do you think a bracket to the wall will be needed for vibrations?
