Van Tweaking (1)

Final tune-up on the van has been completed by local repair man. My dad and I started our own touches on the van: changing wipers and headlights, waterproofing the windshield, making a bed for the back and jimmy-rigging electricity for the van. When it was all finished, I was really impressed with what Dad has whipped up. He hardwired an extension cord from the vans battery to a second battery in the back with a switch in-between. Now, when I drive throughout the day the vans alternator will charge my second battery. At the end of the day I can switch the second battery off of the first, so I won’t run it down and then I use the second battery to power my tv, computer, stereo, etc. Works well so far.

I’m trying to figure out how to run a blog which I will probably have to learn along the way!
