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.
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|
