    Bought a set of tools to take panels off, well they do not help on this one, broke 9, new ones to be got, but you cannot have scrambled eggs with out breaking the egg shell first.
    This looks like staying out till the rest is done, want to fit rev camera, I have put a live feed on my wiring for it and sealed it off.
    Couple of points - below 60 degrees F The plastics used in interiors tends to crack, when I worked in a main agents electrical dept our foreman would not let us start work if the mercury wasn't high enough. - If it is too cold try using a hairdryer to warm the clips up before using them.
    Reversing camera, may I suggest you consider running it through the sidelight circuit - drive with your lights on and you will find you have a very effective rear view camera on the road.

      Well the split charger is in, thats just about it done, hoping to get out for the first night next week. Not to far just to give a try out.

      Split charger is only 30amp one, first night out see how the 2 x 40amp batterys hold up, main thing will be the laptop drawing off the setup, but in a couple of weeks I should get a diesel heater, but I will try that for drawing amps from the battery before I go out for a second night out.

      Then Cumbia run, stopping 2 one nights on the way up to see a mate, and same again on the way back, but I think that run I will need the heater.

            Not going to say, but think the later may be the one.
            The cold did not bother me exept my nose, it was like putting ice on iy when breathing in. There was a AGM meeting on at the air rifle club today, got the lads laughing, they could not get there heads round sleeping in the car in that cold conditions, when the club hut with log burning fire was there.
            I wanted to see if (1) I enjoyed sleeping in the van, at 6ft 1inch its slightly small on length and sitting up. I can cope..
            (2) If what I had done to the van was okay and works, plus trying out the stuf I bought, found the diesel heater was the wrong type, 4 air outlets, should have got the single one, but can change that.

            I did enjoy it, I am okay with the size, and worst comes I know at 3 deg with strong winds I can cope.

              You've done the right thing there, best to iron out the wrinkles in a spot where you have alternatives. Just in case
