Rocks, dirt, water and foreign objects on the road will find it's way into the units from normal driving.

Working on getting some things done and things straightened up and put away for the upcoming summer.
Finally got the last of the counter/table surfaces done. This is the table in the kitchen.



Mumsywumsy always wants to play board games and the only time I really have time is when we're away, so I made a pullout so there wouldn't be any cheating.




When I originally built my door lock, I used a RF transmitter for the remote control. It worked, but I was never really happy with it. The metal of the bus interfered with the signal. You had to be right outside and since the lock is a linear actuator you had to hold the button down while it operated. I just finished an all new setup. This one is bluetooth controlled by my phone. It works from about 200 feet, one button push operates the actuator for the right amount of time. I also have 6 more relays for future use. Right now I just have porch light and front interior lights hooked up.

Control panel using arduino nano, bluetooth module is in front corner of windshield next to A piller.



First outing of the year is in three weeks.

Excellent! Good to see another Maker here. Why do things the simple way when you can use an Arduino and some Bluetooth?

Just out of curiousity, are you encrypting your transmissions?Security being what it is and all.

As a general rule, I'm not all that concerned about security, probably comes from my age and where I live. I don't tend to go places where security is an issue. Besides locks are only for honest people.
First they would have to get the pin # for the bluetooth, then figure out what program I am using to control it. By the way, all coding is on the arduino, but you have to have the right app to access it. I guess if they want it that bad, they can have it.

First trip is Wisconsin for a photo weekend. I generally don't travel all that far. We hope to make a few bus rallys this year. Maybe Glamorama and the Flixible Rally in Ohio, and hit a few state parks. We like to go to state parks during the week when no one is around. Tu and Wed after a holiday we pretty much have the place to ourselves.There are also some Hoosier Cruiser rallys we might make.

OK thanks! I'm a computer security guy so those are the terms I think in. The man with a hammer thinks the whole world needs nailed together.

Mitsubishi and LG are the same. There like buying a toyota or Lexus?
Same animal same support when you need them.
I work on both in commercial construction for a living and if anyone ever needs the tech. Documents or a tech. Hot line let me know. Technician support 800# and all.
Any TRANE rep can get the info. Because they sell it.
The best of the best in my opinion.

Your bus build is great and your photos are even better. I don't know if I have offended or not but your photos are superb.
