    New to van life- Questions on Red Cross ERV

    Welcome to the site and congrats on the ERV purchase. Regarding the replacement side windows, yes the correct size is available but the ones I found didn't have the correct corner radius so it wasn't an exact match. It would work but you'd want to add some extra sealant. I ran one in the...

    LED strip lights flickering when switch is off

    Yeah I'm thinking the circuit board in the dimmer isn't a compete disconnect when switched off. I think I'll try the Flyback Diode so I'll know for sure.

    LED strip lights flickering when switch is off

    This definitely sounds plausible. The dimmer does have a circuit board so maybe that's allowing the voltage spike to pass through even though the switch is "off"?

    LED strip lights flickering when switch is off

    Yes the wires would be next to each other from the fuse panel up past the dimmer switch but I'm not sure if they're zip tied together. I don't have the van here to check but I'm pretty sure the fan is grounded to the van body near the fan and the LEDs are grounded to the van body in the...

    LED strip lights flickering when switch is off

    HELP!! Anyone know what would be causing this? The LED strip lights flicker when a 12v fan is switched between speeds. The LEDs are on a dimmer and the dimmer is all the way off but they still flicker. The Fan and LEDs are on separate circuits. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Here's...

    Home Depot Flatbed Camper Build...

    Long story short is not yet because I quite my job and moved into my own shop to start building things full time and haven't had the time to get back to it. My main focus has been customer projects and finishing my ERV and then I'll get back to this one.... really I will :giggle:.

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    Yeah it's pretty much the same as paint in that respect. Satin is a little more forgiving than gloss though. I got most of the wrap finished up this week. I still have one section on the driver's side and the rear doors to do. It's a lot of brown so I may put some graphics on the sides... I...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    I've looked into switching controllers but haven't found the answers I need to pick the right controller or if it'll even work. My heater is basically and exact copy of a Eberspacher HYDRONIC M-II so I'm sure it's possible. Which controller do you have?

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    The latest thing I did while waiting for the wrap vinyl to come in is added a Chinese diesel heater as a backup to my hydronic system. I figured I had the heater already and found a nice place to put it so why not. One thing I don't like about the hydronic heater I have is the max run time is...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Everything bolted right in except the window switches. I could have gotten power window door panels and used the factory switches but I didn't think it was totally necessary. If I see a pair from a newer van I'll probably pick them up though...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    I was debating whether to paint it or wrap it and I decided to wrap it. I've painted a few vehicles but my shop just isn't set up to paint something this big. I wrapped my F350 in this same color and really liked it so that's what I went with. If anyone is interested it's KPMF Satin Stealth...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    Couple misc things.... Picked up a new 13' electric awning to replace the 8.5' ARB I had on the drivers side. It's technically not made for a vehicle but It seems to be pretty well made so I don't see why it won't work. I'll install it after the wrap. Also installed power windows and door...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    Next up after installing the new window was to finish "deleting" the other stock window. I've had it temporarily covered for a while but I had to finish it up before I started the vinyl wrap. I should have done this before finishing the inside wall but I didn't so here we are. Here's the...

    My (soon to be 4x4) Red Cross ERV Build and Adventures

    I've got some catching up to do... After I got the AC installed I moved on to installing a bigger rear side window. I hated the slider one I had so I looked around and found this dual pane window with built in shade and screen on Ebay. It's the same width but taller. I don't understand why...
