Electrical system done

Got the dockside power together, install inverter, 12 volt lighting, and microwave installed everything working perfect. Added extra wiring for future additions like water system, Refrigerator and more 12 volt outlet.

more electrical

Added outside porch light, installed a vent on side of electrical cabin next to inverter. I am going to use a yeti for refrigeration for now and see how that works for us. O yea I got the flooring done also. Pretty happy with everything so far can't wait to get on the road.

Excellent work!! Looks great.

Very clean wiring as well. Looks like you are using beefy wire, great idea......and adding a few extra wire pulls for future needs.

I just started using the heat-shrink crimp terminals...they are sweet too!

Keep the pics coming.

Thanks Boywonder 34 years in the boating industry has helped.
I forgot to post my battery setup. Next up installing the Blue Seas relay to charge the batteries that is going to be fun finding a spot for it.

Yup, I agree, very nice work. Your wiring looks quite professional with neat bundles and wires trimed to length rather than just coiling up the slack like some do. Running extra wires for future use is briliant, it takes a little more work up front but will save tons of time in the long run. As for heat shrink connectors, they are expensive but work really well maintaining a waterproof connection. For me though I think they may be a bit of overkill in a van application since they tend to stay pretty dry inside, and in addition it's not unusual for me to install one and then end up cutting it off shortly after because I need to modify something. Again, your work looks quite professional, love the cabinets and layout.

SteveW I purchased the porch light off EBay from Dollorled this is their description. 2X 12V LED Awning Light RV Camper Trailer Boat Exterior Camping Bar Lamp Cool W
( 261581777524 ) it puts out decent light? I purchased two of them have not decided where I may mount the second one may use the van for awhile to figure it out. I hope that helps.
