Re: clothes washing

Years ago we used a concrete mixing pail. I was thinking it would work well to wash clothes by rolling it on a flat surface a few times. When I went looking for a picture I found it on the survivalist site... and I thought it was an original idea.

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

To run the interior lights off shore power you’ll need some form of 12v power supply.

The charger I have is rated to run 12v accessories... problem I’ve found is that the batteries don’t charge well when there is much load.

I’ve ordered some 4 watt G4 LED bulbs to replace the operating lights over head. I’ll post more about them after they arrive.

Re: Bed cushion foam

I’ve cut every kind of foam commercially available. It’ll be easy to cut. Easiest is likely to use a straight edge and a black OLFA blade. Let the blade cut it and don’t force it. Change the blades often. Costco has good thick memory foam toppers that would be decent. I’m not sure about using only a...

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

The problem I am having is that when I add a photo the site says it is too large. The dome lights have high and low off just one halogen light. I thought you said you had two bulbs in your ceiling lights. This is an example of what I'm talking about... Picture compliments of Bikersmurf. https://exp...

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

Regarding interior LEDs, G4 can be adjusted to work in the high, and 921 or similar ‘wedge’ bulbs fit the low. I’ve ordered 10, 4 watt, G4 LED dimable bulbs from Amazon, and I’ll try those out before getting lower watt bulbs for the low setting. They are supposed to be equivalent to 35 watt halogen ...

Re: Mobile solar panels for home & Camper, mounted on Ambo Box

Any progress on this project?

I'm going to start with 100W panel to begin with. In the future it would be good to have more... and my 30A controler will be ready.

Re: Portable Kitchen

A kitchen like that would likely fit in the spine board compartment accessible on the back of many of our Ambos. My long term plan is to have a drawer that pulls out of the side compartment containg a table that folds out with a stove, food prep surface, and posibly even a small sink to wash things ...
