Here are a few upgrades i did this winter.
First my solar power upgrade, i decided to go for the 120 WP foldable panel of the German company Wattstunde.
The socket is in the vent cover from the sink and the wires go trough the vent pipe to the controller.
The controller is under the sink and i made a little protection cover to protect the LCD display.
The second upgrade was fitting a diesel heater, i went for the Chinese 2 KW and i’m running it on kerosene.
I didn’t wanted any holes in the original laminate so i converted the magazine box behind the jump seat.
All this can be build back to original as i didn’t drill any holes other then the inlet in the side and the outlet in the bottom of the magazine box.
For the outlet i used the original fresh air vent and sockets from the dashboard to give it a bit of that OG look and feel.
The heater is located under the seat next to the battery.
The controller is behind the passenger seat.
The 5 liter tank behind the driver seat.
And the exhaust with cover when not in use.
This thing is absolutely amazing very quiet and puts out a awefull lot of heat at very low cost, mostly the lowest setting is enough and with the kerosene it burns very clean.
I also found a hella map light that i can put in my fridge socket where normaly my USB charger is, this is the original water tank filler that i converted.
Next upgrade thanks to Covid 19 and to be fully self-sufficient is a shower inside the bus whitout any drilling and completely foldable
