Default newby building class b on Promaster platform

Howdy from Texas!

I was in another thread and was asked about my DIY project. I will reply here and link back there so this doubles as my intro and stays more on topic there.

PIcs and info in my sig. Photobucket has made a mess of things recently so here is an example. Not very exciting by class b standards but neither am I:

2017 model bought used with about 12k miles on it.

On the outside:
  • 570W of mono mounted on...
  • alum extrusions and steel supports suspended underneath...
  • a Vantech H3 two-bar rack. The top of the panels are about flush with the tops of the bars.
  • Maxxfan
  • Curt 13295 receiver hitch for carrying scooter taking up space on my living room floor; need to bolt it up this weekend

On the inside:
  • solar feeds 40A cc and 2x 6v golf carts.
  • Shore power comes through the port on the side AC circuit and a small DIY converter (24v power supply + mppt cc).
  • Battery Dr 100A isolator
  • wiring is pulled, including a separate opportunity load circuit
  • sound deadening in
  • polyiso insulation going in now.
  • Vanrug on floor
  • already have the fresh/gray tanks but nothing is plumbed yet
  • a long, long way to go

This is my retirement plan.
