    Solar packed in

    Good point Dave; could this hint that the flexible panels might be a better bet, or, a series of smaller panelsmight be a better bet? Phil

    My Overland Camperbus Conversion

    As I am left somewhat more gobsmacked speechless by your amazing installation all I can say is "bloody hell".....

    Balancing Power Consumption and Charging. Getting there....

    In all of my many (60) years of tinkering with engines and having a fingers on the pulse contacts with numerous garages, I have never ever heard of a turbo fault resulting in the big ends getting damaged, that honestly is a new one on me!!!

    Which engine and power is the engine fitted David as there are several different versions? Phil

    Balancing Power Consumption and Charging. Getting there....

    But as a converted van, most especially one which has been converted as superbly as yours has, then the retail price of a converted van is very considerably higher than a bare panel van. There are quite a few reputable companies around who undertake full engine reconditioning on a part exchange...

    Fuseboxes with led warning lights

    Chris, there isn't an earthing point on my fusebox either, but the way I have installed my system (which I agree was OTT), I mainly used 3 core 2.5mm EHU cable for even the lightest load itemeven if they only needed a 1 or 2 core supply and in all cases I ran a earth from the device back to the...

    Balancing Power Consumption and Charging. Getting there....

    So very good to hear from you again David after quite a long absence and sorry to hear about your Dad. That was an exceptionally interesting read although technically well above what my pathetic little brain could understand! Although not related to living in a van or indeed anything to do...

    Fuseboxes with led warning lights

    So, is it always best to have a definitive earth? .............. My entire system is somewhat over the top as I have mostly used 2.5mm cable, with every single device having a return to a central earthing post.

    Resealing Van - The Restoration Revisited

    I am left with feeling of utter amazement at your efforts Rae. Also, seeing the exposed and terrible insides during the strip down processes and the appalling build quality of the original construction, no wonder this type of van construction has always been referred to in self building circles...

    Tidy Vans with lots of stuff already done ....

    Not quite correct there as I have always held up the banner of sensibility whenever writing about any van that has a fully galvanised body, an in a similar vein I have alays complimented the Merc. Sprinter, Iveco Daily and indeed the RWD Transits when discussing their mechanical strengths...

    Tidy Vans with lots of stuff already done ....

    The only problem with those vans is of course that they are RUST BUCKET Transits that personally I would avoid at all costs!!

    Drop Down Double Bed

    I don't believe that such a layout would be possible in the normal Sevel/Master/Sprinter etc. type vans but it might just be so in XLWB IVECO vans and of course it would be very possible in the truly excellent Mercedes Vario's and then of course there are also all the library and bus options to...

    Voltage drop

    When I installed the WAECO 12V fridge into 'Millie', I followed the WAECO supplied instructions and used 6mm cable. Phil

    Quart into a pint pot!!!

    Way back in the mid 1970's, my boat was of a similar design but slightly shorter in length but slightly wider of beam with a displacement hull, as for the engine mine was an outboard but I went for a low revving but quite large capacity Tomos 4 stroke that always ran like a dream. When tides...

    Quart into a pint pot!!!

    Hey Geoff you lucky old so and so that is one very nice looking craft..... Is it going to be fitted with an inboard outboard and if so hat power? And, as and when you get her into the water where will you be intending to use her? I, oh so greatly miss my boat that I used to keep down at...

    Camper tyres

    You pay through the nose for specific Motorhome tyres, most especially those made by Michelin. They do claim that they have a greater resistance to UV rays that can knacker a tyre which is parked up for long periods of time, but trying to prove that would be nigh on impossible! Personally I...
