Thank you!

1. Tilt seat forward
2. Slide seat forward
3. Rotate 180
4. Tilt seat back

takes about 2 mins. the swivel plate is offset 2" towards the center of vehicle to allow seat to clear when rotating

Excellent, thank you for the info - Just what I was hoping to find out before I ordered one.

It looks like your passenger seat is a power seat model. I was told you could not put a swivel on a power seat. Where did you get the swivel for it and did you have any problems with the install as far as the electric wires are concerned?

House Batteries, Solar Controller, Converter/Charger

Added 2 AGM 31's under the rear sofa/bed, wired with 1/0 back to engine compartment, thru a solenoid & fuse to the starting battery. Batteries connected with time-delay switch after starting to allow alternator to charge house batteries, or manual connection for jumping via alligator clip moved from it's home on the airbox to the positive battery terminal.









Rogue MPT-2024. I will be installing 2x 105w 24v flexible panels to the roof... as soon as spring thaw happens..




Hookups! PowerMax Boondocker PM4B 60A, drop the cord out the back door & plug-in:


Additional fuse panel installed behind panel that the main disconnect switch and Rogue solar control panel are mounted to.

Dometic Refrigerator Install. 80/20 cabinet

Decided on the Dometic Truck Fridge. Replaced fan prior to installing... super quiet and efficient Noctua NF-F12. I bent a piece of sheet metal and attached it with 3m double vhb tape to create a sealed tunnel to allow cooling air to be pulled thru cabinet for the compressor. The tunnel is sealed at both cabinet ends to prevent heat from the compressor from contact with the rest of the fridge. The entire body of the fridge was then wrapped in 1" recycled denim insulation with foil bubble wrap on top of that - very efficient, batteries can run it for 4-days in summer conditions. Peel & stick cork for the front face and top of cabinet. Shelving created above fridge with pull out shelves/drawers. 80/20 construction, the entire cabinet is mounted to the OEM seat base as is the porta potty that is pictured.

Insect Screens.

These have worked out great. Like a pillow case, drop down over the top of open door, provide nice privacy while allowing window to be up or down. Making bug screens (Skreenz) to provide camping comfort by protecting you from bugs like flies and mosquitoes

Hey thanks for getting back to me so quickly, Appreciate the info. I like the stance of your van, mine isn't quite where I would like it to be yet. I have to replace the drivers side torsion bar, couldn't crank the new keys up, shouldn't be worn out with so little miles (77k) but from what I have read is a common problem with GM vehicles(vans, trucks and suv's) plus need to find the wheels and tires combo I like, shooting for a 32" on 18" wheel.
