    White Turtle III - Ford Transit - The build and adventure!

    Part 2 of the Sand Hills journey is now on the blog! Sunset was amazing, no clouds, no smoke! The only thing was it was almost a full moon so the light from the moon was a lot stronger than I would have liked but it still worked...

    White Turtle III - Ford Transit - The build and adventure!

    So I have had a lot of little projects on my plate and have not done a lot to the van, but I have done a lot with the van. Funny thing is that I get few pictures of the van when I am using it. It is like it is part of me and that is what I want, something to use and not to notice. I just went...

    ARB fridge or ???

    I saw that one and may buy that but first I want to make sure I like my electrical before spending the money. For now the switch is fine - ask me after I drain the vehicle batteries one night by mistake :)

    ARB fridge or ???

    I have a manual switch between the vehicle and house system. Two vehicle batteries and one group 31 house battery as well as the heavy duty alternator to charge up everything. Here is some information on the electrical. Bikersmurf - I looked at the Blue Seas ACR but not sure about it. The...

    ARB fridge or ???

    There are a lot of factors like how often it is open, how much food is in it, how hot/ cold the outside temps are (around the fridge). For my Dometic I have been told on a group 31 I should get two days easily and probably three. I have not tested it yet, nor do I plan on deliberately...

    Fridges

    If there is any suggestion that I can give on the install it is to add more venting then you will need. Also a computer fan to move air in the back is a good idea if you will be in hot climates. I added a vent above the fridge, a grate below and a couple vent holes in the cabinet on the side...

    Truck Camper steps for a northern lite camper

    When I had my truck and camper I had a set of the standard steps. I worked on those for years to keep them tight and stable. Then one day I was at an RV dealer and they had a set of Torklift steps in stock that they ordered by mistake. I bought them and put them on my truck and WOW talk about...

    ARB fridge or ???

    I bought mine from a trucking supply company. A LOT better price than camping places and many of the camping places do not carry this model. The kit is nice but honestly I don't think it is needed, I cut the wood around mine and I am happy. My blog...

    ARB fridge or ???

    I have the CRX65. Only had it for a short time but so far LOVE it. Was out this past weekend and from a full battery using it during the night the battery did not even drop from a standard overnight sitting with no draw. It was a cool night so that may vary. Cools fast, LOVE the pull out...

    White Turtle III - Ford Transit - The build and adventure!

    No not 4wd. I had thought of it but honestly I do not plan on going that off road. I still have a 19' Class C if I need to "camp", but I hate camping to often as staying on one place is boring for me. I do love the look of so many expedition vehicles, but when you see them parked at Walmart...

    2WD or 4x4 through South America?

    I have the KO2's on my Ford Transit van and before that had them with my truck and camper. LOVE the extra traction that they give you!! As for noise I am a VERY sensitive person to any noise in the vehicle and I can say the noise is not noticeable at any speed. At higher speed you have a...
