Right on! Go little noises! We used to live in Moodus. Down on town street by the turkey farm. Moved in 2003. I'll have to wander over to see your bus sometime.
How come your build thread link does not work?
Tanks for the advice all. I'd like to hear more of the 12vdc vs 120 ac talk. I'm a boat guy, and it is common for them to be 12vdc primarily, which is why I was thinking that way. Lorna, is your bus 12v and you use small inverters for individual loads? Which would be worse...the efficiency loss of the inverter or the voltage drop of longish runs? Couldn't the voltage drop be overcome with larger wire?
While I'm at it, are the dc loads in the house grounded to the chassis, or separate wiring to keep house and chassis batteries from mixing?
Lots of fun stuff with this project. I've got a bunch of frames to bang through before this thing hits the driveway, because when it does it is going to be a major distraction!
I've read through all of the forums, and my bookmark file is full of great ideas! Great bunch here. Cheers! Bob
