Making of Campurban
#1
2002 Chevy Suburban 4x4  now coined "Campurban"  Started with 1 renogy 100 watt panel and a UB121000 agm battery, as of today it has another 100 watt panel HQST 100-d panel exact same specs as the renogy 100-d panels  but for 30 dollars less. Also installed the battery doctor battery isolator so will see how that does in a few days. I Removed second and third row seating and added a custom made shelf/cabinet out of a queen size headboard, cut it in half and reconfigured a little bit. Made a platform for a bed with 6" under for storage.  installed my pure sine wave inverter 600 watt. but found I needed a larger inverter on this past camp out ...aka maiden voyage out. bought a cargo carrier from harbor freight that was meant for the 2" rec. hitch but I wanted it for a roof rack  to carry my jerry can and other items.  I use oxygen and use a concentrator so I need to bring a generator . I think with another battery or 2 plus my inverter and panels will power it. but till then Honda inverter gen. works great and is quiet .  Some pics for your viewing enjoyment :Smile oh yeah, the fridge is a Edgestar 12 volt compressor type and works great. have it double insulated and the 1 panel and 1 battery powered it just fine set at 34 degrees.

lots of pics

Very nice, I like what you did for shelving. Those two panels fit your roof nicely. (Get some Dicor self-leveling sealant on the roof mounts). 4X4 too, sweet Smile
Cheers, Rick

Thanks Rick!   No need for the dicor, no holes drilled into the roof at all. I use VHB tape by 3m . I have used it on my last campers with some panels.

Will post more pics tomorrow of other goodies.  lol

Battery doctor installed, had to get a 100 amp resettable  fuse/circuit breaker and pic of the second 100 W panel. My other 100 AH battery is due in Wednesday.

While camping in the desert , we decided we wanted some more light to either put fuel in the generator if needed & play scrabble outdoors or if someone creeped up a light would come on. So harbor freight has this 60 led motion sensor light for 26 bucks with the coupon.  mounted it today along with a couple led strips. will post the led strips later

lol it's been off the beaten path a lot, but I just don't beat it up, as I use this as a daily driver and coast to coast ride.  don't have the cash to keep fixing broken parts.
