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 ...

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

Ok. I’ve not even opened mine up yet to see what the bulbs look like. They’re on the list... now I just need to find some time to work on the list.

I’m usually too busy solving problems to move onto things that are working but could be better. Not with the rig... just about everything else.

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

Regarding size... out of convenience I often snap photos with my phone. To post them I downloaded a free app to resize them. I haven’t checked to see if the new IOS will resize as well as crop & edit.

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

For which LED lights? I can look up the ones I ordered for rear turn lights (1156), stop/tail lights (1157), and the front ‘Ford’ turn/park lights. They were all through Amazon... but I had several duds before I found bulbs that worked well. I also had to replace the older LED flasher with a new one...

Re: AmboLander

Updates? How many feet of wrap did you use wrapping the pipes to the turbo and down pipe?

I’d like to cut down noise in every way I can... and exhaust seems like as good a place as any to start.

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

Thanks for the info My battery bank consists of two batteries for the box and one for the engine. Are you suggesting running an entirely different battery bank to run Air conditioning etc off of shore power? Which I was thinking about doing anyway to avoid trying to splice into existing system. Any...

Best of luck on sale... to the new owner, you've got a bunch of loyal followers who'd like the forum to stick around.

OP... I'm sorry life is getting in the way, I understand your decision far too well.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Had a friend do the upper and lower ball joints... they're a major pain to do. Took it to Ford for a front end alignment... I wasn't impressed when they tried to charge me $200 more than the quoted price for the wheel alignment. All because it needed an alignment bushing changed. They claim, after ...

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Info found: They're 73 series, and there is a $6 adapter to make 700 series fit. Now to decide if I want to replace the front painted lights with clear 'Scene lights'.
