Has been a busy few days getting Henrietta a facelift – nah ..,,actually most of the work was on her rear end. The makeover features
# 70 Litre SS fresh water tanks plus electric water pump
# ARB fridge freezer 47 Litre – 12 volt on slide out
#105 amp hour dual battery mounted in front of fridge under floor
# circuits for 4 USB outlets plus 2 power outlet sockets
# rear drawer system
# pull out folding table
# voltage sensitive relay linking the car battery to the house battery
# install clever battery monitor system
Beach at Andrew and Claire’s place
sEvery bone now aches from all the install work – crawling in and out of the back of Henrietta enough times to hurt. The final work was done at Gosford where my friends Andrew and Claire recommended a sparky to help with the last aspects of the dual battery connections. I came over with huge box of auto electrics components
and tools so was able to do most of the fiddly work myself . All systems go now.
Had a very pleasant evening with Andrew and Claire – I met them at the Nullarbor roadhouse as they were cycling East and I west . Wad a good catchup on his epic 4000km plus ride all the way home from Perth.
Hit the road today for my trip back to Adelaide. Missing Sammi – she was a great support with sharing the drive and today was tough. Overtired — in a word .
The first big test of the day was at Dubbo – my destination and camp tonight —
The fridge had a few Aussy beers for its initiation – opened the lid and they were sitting nicely at 4 degrees c. Perfect !
