Van Life – Rehabbing a rusty 22 year old Dodge Ram 1500 Van, Part 11 of Many

Van bed slates were finished before our trip and today, we ordered her mattress (6 inch memory foam short queen). We started on the insulation (taped until the walls going in) and ran wiring for the lights, the fan (Maxx Air 7500K), and outlets.

We then started to get the walls and door panels going, we also setup the solar testing on the back deck since these are old re-used solar panels that originally came on our RV and we removed. Turns out they tested pretty well, in direct sun we were pulling 80W/panel and they’re only 100W rated panels.

Lots of goodies arriving in the mail today and hopeful for lots of work done this weekend. Addtionally, she goes for window tinting on Monday.
