Re: Shore power

As long as the 'Shore Power' breaker inside the rear is in the 'ON' position, you can use Shore Power with the engine and key in the 'OFF' position. The whole purpose of Shore Power is to provide power to the equipment that requires charging in the back and the engine heater, when the vehicle is par...

Re: Shore power to existing wiring inverter

Well, the only thing I can suggest at this point is to make sure everything is off and/or unplugged, pull the cover off of that breaker box, and start tracing wires.

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...

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...

Re: Checking out a Ambo by the road

Cool video! You are correct, that ambulance is just right for converting to an RV. I's completely intact, pretty good shape, and the engine runs, although I did see a small oil leak underneath at the bell housing. Price is about right, but I'd hit up the 'or best offer' option, and start around $6,5...
