David Lawson's Fahrzeug (#1275)

Altimeter is in and working. An altimeter is a very accurate barometer. It's nice to know the elevation, but If I match it with gps, I get the barometric pressure.

I am experimenting with converting a small AC toploading freezer to an inverter powered refrigerator. So far, the power usage is extremely low. If this works, it will be 1/10th the cost of a dc refrigerator half its size and it can be replaced most anywhere in the USA. The external thermostat is a Johnson Controls A19AAT. I'll clad the top with linoleum or wood and use it for a table top so the space is not wasted.

Wechselrichter I'm looking for an inverter that is not screaming with rf.
The circuit breaker is installed on the bumper because there is just no room under the hood of a 2019 F-550. Two 2/0 cables are attached to the starter battery bank through a 1/8" x 1" copper bus bar. Power is taken from the circuit breaker to the SB350 connector through a 4/0 cable. The circuit breaker is rated for 200 amps. The cables and bus bar are rated for far more than that at the distance it is traveling.

The truck has dual alternators and generates 377 amps. I would have liked to have sent more than 200 amps to the cabin batteries, but cable sizes became unwieldy and components became harder to find. I had to compromise to keep it simple.

I've decided to use a 24 volt solar system instead of a 12 volt. The necessary adjustments will be made to support 12 volt accessories.

Volumen der Abwassertanks 40 gallons
The highlighted pieces of the rear fuel tank have been ordered separately. It will be converted into skid plate equipped gray water tank.

Extensive radio equipment to be installed in area of factory console. Amateur, CB, marine, aviation, MURS and GMRS will be incorporated. The front of the truck may be littered with antennas before this is over. This part of the project will resume soon.
