Not directly related to working on BoB, but spent some time this afternoon with my dad building a workbench in my shop area at the back of the garage. In the long run it will make it easier to finish working on BoB.

Task complete, Espar R2D2 is in. I don't really have much to add that hasn't already been said except for "Thanks". All the posts, tips and assistance found here makes all the work that much more doable.
The install went as expected for as much forethought and pre-planning as I put into things. I mounted the furnace door-side behind our bench seat in the fashion of Traipsing About. My initial plan was to mount it on the opposite side but my aux power box limited free drilling space. The pump is mounted just behind drivers door inside the frame rail sharing a nearby hand brake hanger. Fuel plumbing and pump wiring was pretty straight forward though in the end I wish I would have pre-primed the lines. I did the bulk of the install on Friday and saved the electrical for today. Wiring is where most of the questions and all of the spare parts live. Being as bought the basic kit I didn't have a lot bells, whistles and extra wires to deal with and I was able to get by with just matching wire for wire and plugging everything together into my 12v system. Three rounds of clicking pump and crossing fingers later and there is heat. In all I think I spent just shy of 7 hrs on the project though I've got a few more things to tidy up later...add 'em to the list. I'll post a few pics when I get a sec.

Where'd you get the full frame mount receiver? I'm having trouble finding info on it.

So far this weekend . . . .got the Curt trailer module mostly in. (easy), Pulled 110v extension cords from box at drivers B pillar to pass B,C,D pillar locations . Got the pass side front "spot"in , but broke another plastic moulding retainer doing it! 2 forward, 3 back . LEDs under slider in . Pulled all (?) wires along roof channels and down to endings and labeled. And pulled "trailer ribbon" all over too (in case I missed/upgrade).
There's enough room behind the rear "vents" to put the fuses,relays, etc, for next session.
Tomorrow when the cats 'n dogs are coming down I will make the timer/relay assemblies, maybe make a panel to hold the fuses ,blocks, etc.
I draw out the schematic cartoons and when I put all of them together it looks like a plate of spaghetti . Made the picture look much better when the wires were strung ad the ends were labeled.

KNDLKSTMS -- your cabinet looks very nice!

Do you have a parts list?
How much did it cost?
Do you happen to have a template of the side plates still?

Thank you,
Paul
