We've got a small booth at the local Saturday Market, and Further pulled through last week. Pretty fun, full of college greek guys and even a shirtless girl. They were charging for rides, to raise funds for the 50th anniversary trip (no pun intended) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...niversary-trip
Gotta' love Eugene (but I'm glads the kids skipped market last week).
Great definition of 'crunchy
' here: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=crunchy
, is sort of the 21st century version of 'hippie', but without the drug references and heavy political slant.

Finally got the secondary (house) battery in and wired up correctly. The bus has a simple multi fuse (glass type) panel already mounted, and after connecting it 'properly', it still wasn't outputting when the ACC was off. So....long story short, on one end of the board the tang for the fuse had been bent over onto the ground lugs. It almost looks intentional, and I've no idea why this was done. I isolated the panel (it's grounded through the screws), inserted the isolator output and + to house battery, and ta-da...accessories on house battery work just fine. Didn't get a photo of this before I corrected it, but the panel is very basic (and old school). Super stoked about having this feature ready to go, the interior lights have been acting a mess since we bought it, I'm guessing I've figured out why. Haven't checked my parasitic draw again, but both batteries are right at 14.48vDC when charging (no load), and discharge down to about 12.6 with key off. The house battery isn't a deep cycle, just another car battery. Should be all we need for just those 4 little bulbs.
Planning to take it about 75 miles out to the Oregon coast for Father's Day. Looking forward to sharing some 'action' shots. Hope to post up a few photos of the interior. It's pretty simple (no amenities) and I finally cut some proper length props for the extend-o beds. Easily sleeps 5 of us, but with little ones, I usually end up on the floor....
