would love to?
but this shorty with a collins/midbus body has a solid little i beam bus body frame that is u bolted to the chevy chassis rail so anything passing from side to side would have to be under the chassis frame and i dont want to cross under the driveline for anything.
have thought about cutting round holes in the bus body rail and still picture frame with angle but that is extra work that can be avoided if i could get through the overhead.
was thinking sj/so cord but not really keen on that because i have also read that since its already insulated then if you run it in insulation then it could get to hot.
plus through the roof of a bus?
i think i have figured out my solution by changing the outlet for laptop/phone charging to 12v and i run a different path to get 120 on that side.
knee wall at the stair well. was already trying to run 120 over there but that outlet needded to be above the windows and i am putting in a raceway for everything 120v because i know it can mess with the 12v signal if ran together..
my wife wanted a porch lite on the passenger side of the bus for when at campgrounds or plugged in to shore power.
to get her started the solar is basic and i will build for more to be added whether she likes it or not but she wont complain cause she knows i overbuild anything i do.
thanks everyone for your advice.
most 120 is done next is to figure out load center and although not a sparky by trade i do commercial/industrial HVAC and getting one of my service techs over for advice or to check things out is not a problem.
