David Lawson's Fahrzeug (#1275)

The bumper turned out very well. I need to work on less expensive items for a while. I'll come back to the winch.

The truck has been ordered without the rear fuel tank. The auxiliary fuel tank will be incorporated into the habitation box and will be gravity operated. The plan to use Rickson conversion wheels is in doubt. I'm seeing bad reviews on them and I am having trouble contacting them. I'm looking for an acceptable alternative.

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.

Batteriekapazität im Aufbau

Batterietyp lead acid 6 volt golf cart wired for 12 volt output
There are better batteries available, but the United States is littered with golf courses. Golf cart batteries are easy to find and are not prohibitively expensive.


Volumen der Frischwassertanks 100 gallons
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.


Hersteller und Art der Toilette Thetford cassette


Heckträger Single spare and I am looking for an appropriate motorcycle carrier design.
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.
