  1. Hi Steve, I think you might be asking about the original post from Overland but you are responding to my post. In any event, we did not order any factory installed table. We ordered the access hatch to the basement instead. Then we used Overland's approach (you might have seen the floor table mount in his pictures above) to mount the lagun table bracket under the driver's side bed. Cheers, Mark
  2. We did essentially the same conversion with the exception of creating the platform also as the lagun table top. I posted this on overland's topic regarding his custom lagun table bracket. The details are posted on our blog here. Cheers, Mark
  3. Thanks Overland. Nope we cut down a twin 3" natural latex foam mattress topper. We added the same foam on top of the standard cushions to create our mattresses. We tried to roll and tie them but that was sloppy, then the "roll and tuck" approach presented itself. Takes a little elbow grease and having not too tiny hands helps.
  4. Well it's time for us to weigh in on this mod. With inspiration from overland we went ahead and made a similar retrofit in our Oliver, with a twist. We now have a table/desk as well as a twin bed bridge. I give the complete details here on our website.
  5. It was pretty cold in Massachusetts in late November, dropping below freezing for nights in a row, while driveway surfing at my parents place and counting down the days to Thanksgiving. To keep the plumbing from freezing in Ollie we were running the gas furnace to keep the living space in the 50s and the space between the hulls warm. On several days I came out and found the interior around 39 degrees and the furnace not running. What?? As I fumbled about with this the first time, I flipped all the AC breakers and pressed all the 12v fuses. The furnace restarted. Huh. I was not paying close eno
  6. And at Overland's suggestion I cancelled the order of the BMV-700 and ordered the BMV-712 instead.
  7. Hi Jeff, I was putting more trust in the recommendation from Zamp. But for this user's complaint I'd have suggested an inexpensive solar trickle charger to offset the parasitic load (caused by forgetting to shut the unit off? Twice?). We used one on our sailboat and had no issues with phantom/parasitic loads draining the house batteries. For our Airstream (no solar) we added a mechanical shutoff to the negative terminal to eliminate the possibility of unwanted battery drain. In our case today, we have 320 watts of solar panels charging the batteries when the sun shines which i
  8. Oh and backcountrysolar is out of stock at the moment. I ordered from Amazon and included the bluetooth dongle for $193.
  9. A Battery Monitor solution (one of many anyway) I consumed all the feedback above, concluded I need a battery monitor for insight into our battery use that I desire and then set out scouring the web for options. Chris's post (technomadia) from 2008, provided some excellent insight and jumping off point for products to find current versions of and consider. I concluded I need a standalone monitor, not an add on to an existing system. In all of the above research I narrowed my choices down to two: the trimetric touted above and the Victron BMV-700 (plus the bluetooth dongle). Being
  10. Thanks to all who posted responses. Clearly it is battery monitoring that I am after. I read the linked 2008 article from Chris of Technomadia and saw references to some battery monitors there. I'll look at some more recent reviews of currently available monitors and report back here.
  11. We have, on our 2018 LEII: 4-6v AGM batteries 2 Solar Panels (320w) ZS-30A Charge Controller 2000w Inverter Composting Toilet with 12v dc fan We know the solar panels charge the batteries through the controller. Does anything else help to charge them? On the charging side: When plugged into 30a 110v, does the AC system charge the batteries? When plugged into 15a 110v, does the AC system charge the batteries? (Like when running the generator when boondocking or using friends AC when driveway surfiing.) When plugged into the TV with 7 pin connector, doe
