For a roof A/C, they seem to be getting better every year. The Coleman Mach 10 13.5BTU unit has gotten some good reviews and doesn't draw too much power if attempting to run off a large battery system.
I keep trying to figure out how to make an secondary engine driven compressor system work. I'm just not sure there will be enough room under a van for it to fit along with enough sound insulation to make it tolerable in a campsite. So I keep going between that and just a crap-ton of lithium batteries.
I've looked at the Coleman Mach 10 and the Dometic Penguin 2. Next summer, I'll be picking one or the other. With a soft start, they can run on a small generator.
I brought it to a shop, supposedly fixed it. They didn't. They replaced the transmission range selector.
Then I replaced the cruise control cutout switch, didn't work. Then new steering wheel buttons and clokspring. Still not working. Now my horn isn't working. So something went wrong when I installed the clockspring. I'm about to take it to Ford and just let them deal with it.
Picked up a new sweet set of LED taillights:
I also ordered a new interior rug and WeatherTech floor mats. I'll also be switching to 08+ OEM Ford seats. That way I can get a seat swivel for the passenger seat.
Arriving today is the white Raptor Liner to spray everything that's white with. I have also been working on getting all the parts for a 08+ front end.
Here's what we have so far:
08+ upper / lower header panel:
Fenders (will be here today):
And the radiator cross bar. I'm waiting on the hood latch to show up. I also need a grille and hood. But that will be more junkyard hunting for those.
