Well today the fun stuff started to arrive...the electrical toys... as far as my AC/DC management/inversion/conversion stuff goes anyways. Been sort of reading , theorizing and then purchasing on a "Phase I...2...3" mentality. At heart, I'm a tekkie...and my plans are to make a mobile HTPC a center part of my install, nothing too extravagant...but enough to do what I need and be an outlet for entertainment etc. I plan on running 2-4 batteries undercarriage...not certain if I want to go with 6 volt or standard 12 volt. But right now I have two bases covered. The AIMS 3way switch offers a pretty nice automatic sense and changeover I want with having mobile computer systems with me...and of course the pure sine wave 1000 watt should be enough to operate what I need for the time being. The Onan will take care of the 110v dry camping or if other heavier equipment is going to be needed while mobile. I want to add 4 solar panels on the top with a controller to constantly charge the batteries in the long run. ( I got plans kids!)
So now it's on to doing a breadboard of it all, figuring for outlets and all the accouterments.
I'm in the process of researching some other retrofits..and upgrades. I'm still weary bout the 392 motor...and have been pacing about a DT466 with an Allison I've been seeing on Craigslist. Since it's a pusher I'm envisioning it just dropping right in...but I know it isn't the case ( I'm also a bike builder and motor tweaker). I never truly trust something I haven't torqued myself...let set for a day...and then retorqued. Anyone willing to chime in on the potential...let me know. I know it would be more savvy to just buy a bus with a diesel already in it...but cmon...look at this thing!!!! It begs for the miles to be put on it haha.
So here are a few goodies I thought I would show off... first things first...have this pesky leak in a roof vent I cant seem to find...I've eternabonded the seals and coated everything 4 times...yet...hard rain and I get a damp spot on the back vent...grrr
Hope everyone is A-Ok
This would be the "Juggernaut Development Lab"
