Work List

Completed 2018-2019

  • Swivel for passenger seat and drivers seats – check passenger for squeak/rattle
  • New wiring for all lights

Additional Work Needed

I have tried to organize these by priority. I am open to hearing any suggestions you may have.

  1. Complete the Pantry area electrical panel and organize it better. I did not have proper swaging tools to make the required cables.
  2. Create a track sliding system for the Dometic portable top load fridge. Alternative:  Install a Vitrofugio fridge into pantry with microwave above and electrical panel/storage below.
  3. Install solar panels with Victron Controller.
  4. Install proper inverter.
  5. Try to use the the CTEK controller but not a requirement.
  6. Wire the shore power so that the CTEK Battery charger (located to the left of the bench) can be used.
  7. Completion of electrical switches with MORE convenient locations. I can provide a wiring diagram for this.
  8. House AC electrical system installed. Wiring is already installed to bring power from back left of van to pantry and then to sink base.
  9. Grey water outisde and fresh water inside tanks installed. Water pump and sink already installed. Tanks to have drains at bottom for easy maintenance.
  10. Insulation or heating for the tanks to be either installed or planned for to allow for winter camping.
  11. Bench seat rebuilt behind the drivers seat with storage for a Thetford Curve toilet. Seating to be more ergonomic and to allow for possible additional bunk and storage
  12. Better microwave – possibly
  13. Additional roof fan
  14. Plug holes in floor

Optional additional work

  1. Table for the bench that can be setup and removed easily – swivel arm.
  2. Upgrade stereo (see link) Amplifier for the stereo and a subwoofer – already wired behind drivers seat
  3. Van Compass suspension parts.
  4. Axle (is it limited slip?)
  5. Replace the tires with snow rates tires (if work can be done for this winter.)
  6. Interior space heater powered by gasoline – this is usually mounted under the front passenger seat.

Interior Finishing Notes

These following are all items that are a low priority
  • I would like to see the bands of trim wood used for finishing off the ceiling.
  • Sliding doors for under the sink and maybe a door for pantry/closet.
  • Floor covering, sand is getting under rubber Matt between seats and back, and will be impossible to get out.
  • Cover wires andback of shelves – material I have been using is this

Optional – Roof and Exterior Solar Notes

Ladder for back
Rack for Roof – ALU RACK
Mount two 170 or 180 watt panels to this down the middle or to one side.
Solar Panel Design – grape now supplies this same size in 180w
