  1. I think I paid close to $300. Output varies but the highest I got was about 120A when running AC on the giant inverter (measured with my own amp meter) I also had to replace the belt as it uses smaller pulley to get higher RPM for idle charging current. I also had to replace the stock cable with #2/0 welding cable. It was a lot of work and I don't think I would do it again. The guy from the site was very helpful
  2. I've used the small dorm fridge for years without issues! Nice work
  3. I wouldn't! HG failure often does not happen immediately. If you have time to spare and are concerning; you can try the compression test, leak down test, and testing for combustible gas in the coolant system to filter out any sign of HG failure. I tend to stick with the original HG from factory unless it fails. My 2 cents!
  4. I ordered one from https://www.excessiveamperage.com/ and so far so good; kind of pricey but it works well so far
  5. This van is pretty cool and reliable too. I think it has the same 2.4L engine as the truck. There was some safety concern when there is nothing in front to protect the driver. It would be better if it's 4WD
  6. I replaced mine with generic ones...had to drill holes and put stainless steel bolts...about 2-3 hrs. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LBB68VV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I can snap a pic. if you need to see it. I replaced the bathroom one.
  7. I live in Pacheco...would you mind sharing your mechanic contact info.? I've got a few things that I haven't the time to do. You can also have him contact me at 925.804.5535. Thanks
  8. Did anyone ended up installing one in the Toyhome?
  9. one thing I am concerning is where to find the roof support? it's aluminum...and for house, I can just use the hammer, taping to it and I can feel the roof rafter...Yes I install rooftop solar once in awhile ... but for the RV's Aluminum roof... I am clueless. The other option is to drill all way thru the roof and use a big washer with thru bolt...nothing worse than having the solar panel flying off the roof
  10. I got 3 of these...planning on mounting on the roof soon...any tips/trick/advise? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BFCNFRM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I think there is enough space. I run the fridge all the time...not sure if it will be enough...may need a second 100Ah batt....need room for that too. Nam
  11. I really thing we should do nothing...just to recap. Hook up the fan to near by 12V source and call it the day...
  12. I converted that Romex from 120V to 12V to run a roof vent after removing the old AC unit. Thanks Dan for the wiring diagram which is very helpful
  13. Tri_cab...interesting
