Stuff I used in CamperVan Build

My First Project was to get power into the Van with the idea being shore power would be the easiest to start with. I bought a Deep Cycle battery at Walmart, then it was as simple as getting a charger and a way to plug it in.

NOCO Genius G7200 12V/24V 7.2A UltraSafe Smart Battery Charger
MICTUNING 13Amp 125V AC Port Plug with 16″ Integrated Heavy Duty Extension Cord and Water-resistant Cap

My next power project was to be able to charge while I was driving, So with the help of a voltage sensing relay and cable I was able to manage that. At the same time I enlarged my battery back and added a device to sulfinate the batteries.

TEMCo 3/4″ Marine Heat Shrink Tube 3:1 Adhesive Glue Lined 4 ft RED
TEMCo WC0413 – 25 ft 1/0 Gauge AWG
Pico 4439C 1/0 AWG Battery Cable 3/8″ Tubular Lug Ring
Pulsetech PowerPulse Battery Maintenance System, 12V – This little beauty has taken my average Walmart Deep Cycle batteries and improved the resting charge level significantly.

My third and most recent power project was adding solar to the van. for this I choose a WindyNation kit. Easy for start.


The Windy Nation 200w has been a great addition to my Campervan. It was easy to install and hook up.

I built a lift to raise and lower items from the roof of the van

Getting heavy things up and down off the roof is difficult. I built a simple lift system with 4x4s and these. National Hardware N233-247 3219BC Wall/Ceiling Mount Single Pulleys in Zinc, 1-1/2

I used the Cobra CPI 880 800 Watt 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC Power Inverter with 5 Volt USB output to run all my 110 items and my refrigerator.
Keeping in mind safety, I had to have a fire extinguisher. This is the one I choose, First Alert 2.5 Pound Rechargeable Fire Extinguisher – HOME1 – 1-A:10-B:C – 10 -Year Warranty
