The truck had its first trip out at the weekend to Stratford Racecourse to AO 15 where I met up with a group of Overlanders
The truck performed very well
I hardly got any chance to see the show as an unbelievable amount of people seemed to want to view my almost empty truck

Easy transfer from cab to cabin was important to us so I enlarged the crawl to a step through
I decided on Accordion Boot rubber which is only available from the US

I am sure I made this job harder than it may have needed to be but this was compounded by the fact that Thetford forgot to include a cutting template and the fact that the toilet butted "no toilet humour intended" up to an internal wall.

The system needs some working out. in the picture below from the left is my 24v CTEK charger below that a split charge relay. next to that a Sterling 1600W inverter. next to that a 12 and 24 v take off with the respective fuse bank beside each. the system will be 24v with the 12v system supplied through a 24 to 12v converter sited above the fuses. turn the corner and we have a mains consumer unit with the solar isolator above. Next to that on a red key is the inverter isolator switch then next to that my solar controller.

This job turned out to be bigger than I thought
Marking out and then fixing the router guides takes forever
The "long" router bit I bought wasn't long enough
The final cut needed a knife
Spacers and 252 clamped for the night
They look good when done, the windows are not as vulnerable and it should be easier to fabricate covers in the future.
