I couldnít get myself to pay $4000 for the commercially available units.

$400 was well worth it.

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


I leave it unlatched, generally.

I charge the RV battery on the weekends. Iíll probably get a small solar panel to keep it charged.

The 12v is pretty slow, but I didnít want multiple batteries, an inverter, and a large solar panel. Too many moving parts for my liking.

I was going to have a larger sprocket 3D printed, but thereís a whole lot more than just the sprocket- a bracket that attaches to the operator and a shaft that anchors the track the belt runs alongside. I still might do that, just bolting it in above the existing onto the exposed splined shaft.

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


I had a problem with my last van. I used some cabinet ply and it had a bad case of the termites. So this time I used a lot of treated AdvanTech in there, in fact everything was treated and the off gassing was harsh. I had to seal it up. For some reason it takes forever for that stuff to dry out.
