Most of you saw it on the lost coast run but I was updating the expedition portal build page and thought I would fnish the progress here as well.
Overall very pleased with how it worked on the lost coast run. I have a couple of things to finish, the gas cans and I will add external propane tank mounts to free up some room in the trailer for some gear we ended up having to put in the jeep instead. We also got the real tent now and will try that out at tepui fest at hollister the 11th and 12th. If you're interested in the tents would be a great place to check them out. You can find more info on their site www.tepuitents.com
The battery box platform
No going back now, the hole to get the fridge and trailer lighting to the battery box
Battery box installed with a 20 watt solar panel on the lid to aid with charging. Plugged in with the external charge port as well.
The inside of the battery box. External waterproof LED 6 position switch panel, external cig lighter port, external dual usb port all controlled by a master cut switch, 12 position fuse panel, hellroaring battery isolator/combiner, solar charger with battery gauge, genuis shore power charger and 800 watt inverter. Oh and two blue tops.
The light wiring. I ran 7 outside and went back to back on 3 for the inside.
The inside lights
External lights, 3 on each side and one in front. This also shows the switch panel lit up and the shore power, usb and cig ports.
Cig lighter port and truck fridge mounting plate installed. There is enough cord to still fully pull the floor out.
Truck Fridge 50 Liter installed. Just fits under the lid and bleh you have to pop the lid a hair to slide it out. Oh well.
The quick connect for the water output.
The water inlet and vent which are right underneath the water output. Pull the lever down to open, up to shut. The locks also keep the dirt out.
The water fill only works with a pressurized water source so what to do if there is only a pour-in water source? (filtered water from stream, campground, etc.) Well the JK has a 5 gallon pour-in water tank in the rear bumper so... add another pump and make it so the jeep can fill the trailer!
Switch on the s-pod
Quick connector under the bumper
Pump and strainer
Coil hose connected
Pretty good pressure. Problem solved.
Getting the new Tepui Kukenam Sky Tent at the factory in Santa Cruz.
Out on the lost coast!
Thanks again Craig for the link, this opens a whole world of camping possibilities!
