Make sure to check out and bookmark Dennis’ (KF7RYX) new Budget-Shack-on-Wheels project. He recently upgraded his 1978 Dodge van / Motorhome for a 1991 Fleetwood Southwind. He is one of the more active members of the Queen Creek ARC. (Now on Facebook as well as YouTube.)
His plan is to document all the upgrades as he tackles power, solar, generator, lighting, electrical, plumbing, storage, flooring, RV cooking, and of course RF communications. (Ham radio, MESH and cellphone). To prove you don’t need to spend a lot of money if you are willing to do the work yourself – as well as take some of the mystery out of some of the processes.
Dennis is a serious Jack of all trades, so it should be a quite entertaining video series on Youtube as he covers his various projects and documents them on the web.
