Where is that located in your rig? Or maybe where was it originally located
There was a cabinet on the left side just before you go through the pass through. The electrical board went floor to ceiling in that cabinet and the relays are on the very bottom of that board. Look at the 5th picture in post number 2 and you will see them.Where is that located in your rig? Or maybe where was it originally located
Cool.There was a cabinet on the left side just before you go through the pass through. The electrical board went floor to ceiling in that cabinet and the relays are on the very bottom of that board. Look at the 5th picture in post number 2 and you will see them.
I'd be very surprised if you didn't have one or two in there. Now you have a mystery to solve. Good luck.Cool.
Maybe I have that in mine too. I definitely some outlets, inverter, converter, etc in a closet there. Below that is the AC unit. But maybe behind that wall on the back side of the cabinet is where that is.
No I still don't know anything about the material. This doesn't sound like the stuff you are referring to. It's lighter than plywood and easy to cut. If I had found more of this material I would use the 1/2 inch version for most of my build. I have a load of starboard coming instead.I caught the bug to want to convert an ambo not long ago and I've been lurking on these forums since. Just came across this thread and I'm actually looking at a used model very close to yours. Loving the info so far and will end up using a lot of it. You've sparked a few questions:
- Any luck on figuring out the paneling material? The black edges look like phenolic resin board with laminate attached. I've worked with this stuff in another application before. It's incredibly durable, hard to cut and drill (will wear out bits and blades faster than you believe). It's also extremely heavy. Then again your description doesn't quite sound like this material, so I'm not sure.
- You or anyone else have any information about improving fuel economy? 11-12mpg highway is not terrible for what it is, but just a small improvement would put it nearly in SUV territory, which would be even better. Just had me wondering on the side there.
- I also would want to install a small wet bath with just enough room for a shower/sink/toilet. My original impression is the same location that you're using (right behind the drivers seat), but I wonder if there is enough room for it right behind the passengers instead (where the large pantry is) or even on the passenger side at the rear? I couldn't quite tell from your sketches if either of these locations would be possible. Both would be limited in their flexibility of how much space you can repurpose for this it would seem.
