During winter time i could fully charge my batteries from solar panels (they covered in snow all the time). Also i don't like to running my van engine for charging from alternator. So i got 3kW pure sine inverter with builtin battery charger and run it with 1kW gas generator.



I finish my vantilation system for toilet and bathroom and it sucks! (in a good way).


Did some air tests to be sure it works. Not yet tested in real life tho.

I was very upset with metal walls in my van - they looks terrible. Scratches and random holes all around. But then i found out you can cover this panels with some glue end eco-leather material for cheap and easy!


This is NOT the instruction how to do this job good. It's only my way to do it for super cheap and fast. Use this knowledge carefully for your projects. For sure this work could be done better.


Is that a good idea? Lets find out
