Re: Zuke's D.O.A - 89 Chevy Ambo Build

Some photos from recent upgrades, and last weekend camping. I've been pretty busy this season being a guide at three different off-road parks, and fixing the crawlers between weekends wheeling, but I've managed to add a few things in between those, just haven't found the time to update the thread wi...

Re: Air Conditioning Options

I've seen rooftop units mounted above the truck cab. Could that be an option to save interior space? It could be a good option, But I'm happy with what I've done, so I don't personally plan to change it, but others should definitely consider it if they want to keep the height down. Plus I have plan...

Re: Air Conditioning Options

It is a considerable expense at around $700 for a power saver rooftop unit but it was well worth it for the space and efficiency we gained over the portable unit. The hoses of the portable unit take up a lot of room and are only somewhat flexible so trying to route them in a clean and space conscio...

Re: Air Conditioning Options

The Frigidaire unit worked out nicely this weekend, Kept the Ambo very comfortable while it was 90+ outside... But it did have to run pretty much constantly to do that.

I'll be working on a more permanent ducting solution this week I hope...

Re: Barehanded's '03 Ford E350 Wheeled Coach (Type III) Conversion

Yeah, Steel to Aluminum galvanic corrosion really isn't a big problem, just protecting the steel the way you normally would (A good paint) is really probably all that is needed.

Re: Batteries - Series vs Parallel

Question on how this relates to Isolators though, If you take existing single battery banks, and turn them into "Big ass A" and "Big ass B" by combining batteries in parallel, Does this really matter to your isolator at all? You've greatly increased your available amperage, and p...

Re: MRE -vs- kitchen install

A lot of this depends on your planned usage, and, as you state, unplanned usage (Bug Out) and priorities. Up until I bought my Ambo last year, I was camping in just regular old vans with a bed platform and a Big Buddy heater. The platform allowed us to keep a full kitchen (Large two burner Standup S...
