A very long and quite possibly riveting video in which I ponder the possible locations for the new Ecotree Lithium battery and the Renogy 2kW inverter in the campervan along with the associated other bits and pieces.
As so many people seemed to like peering round different campervans in the last video, and as the CCM show was on again at the NEC, I bought a last-minute ticket and went along on the Friday to see if anything caught my eye.
I go to collect a new lithium battery but spend most of my time nosing around a stock of vans for sale.
Having replaced the sink in the new worktop, I needed to sort out the sink outlet for waste water and the supply pipe from the main tank. This proved irritatingly troublesome, as you will see!
Another classic case of frustration and banging my head against the wall as I try to fix the new campervan worktop in place whilst also making it removable in case I need to do so in future.
While the new diesel heater ran for two hours as per the installation instructions, I didn’t want to leave it unattended so I turned my attention to cutting the new worktop including holes for the sink and tap (faucet).
In what is arguably my dullest video yet – and that really is saying something – I present a few minutes of me touching my hand to an exhaust pipe and saying “yes, it’s hot” as I do the first test run of the newly-installed Planar / Autoterm diesel heater in the campervan, as well as CO checks and making sure the van isn’t about to be set alight.
In which I show you what further installation I did over Christmas and then do the final bit needed to get the heater ready for its first test run.
Bit of a chat explaining my choices on the diesel heater install which, while not optimal “by the book” are still OK, I believe, and if not I only have myself to blame.
Continuing the recent series of videos where I dismantle much of what I built before and replace it with a completely different system, here’s Part 1 of me taking out the Propex HS2000 heater and replacing it with an Autoterm diesel unit.
