    This seemed the best place to post this. The driver’s side front window on my Promaster didn’t work all winter, but before I could talk to a mechanic about getting it fixed it started working sporadically. Now, it’s really a 50/50 shot as to whether it’s going to roll down or not. When it’s not...

    My van life project has been put on hold and delayed since the last time I posted. With all the new technologies & products that have come out, I want to try to completely re-design my electrical system. I still have some lingering, "sanity" check questions as I'm still a electrical newbie...

    Hello there, I'm new to the forum. My passenger side taillight will not come on. I'm pretty sure it's the same bulb use for brake light operation. I've replaced the bulb and the light comes on when I depress the brake, but remains off if the brake is not depressed. the driver side works just...

    Hey all, Really nearing the finish on my build. All electric up and running. TF130s came back in stock and I snagged the DC-only model tonight. I finally found their manual while I wait for delivery. Looks like my wire run may be slightly undersized, but curious what other owners have...

    Hello Forum Is their a setting which will allow the cigarette lighter plug to stay 'hot' so I can charge a cell phone while the vehicle is off? I have a 2020 Ram Promaster Cargo 1500. Previously I had a SUV which allowed me to charge a phone overnight while I slept. With my Promaster their is...

    I have two 12V puck lights wired in series in my Promaster camper. They are wired directly to a single 12V on/off switch which goes straight to a 12V fuse block. I accidentally blew the light’s fuse the other day and noticed that with the fuse blown there was still the faintest glow in the puck...

    TL;DR: Purchased van pre-built, modified sine inverter wouldn't charge my laptops, replaced with a pure sine inverter to the same results, paid a guy to redo all of my wiring, same behavior. I feel like there's something wrong with the way it's wired but I don't know enough about it. Long...

    New to forum and on the cusp of purchasing a van and beginning a conversion and trying to decide whether I want to try to do it myself or take it to Wayfarer Vans to install a conversion kit. I'm probably average on the "handy" scale so I know a full DIY would take me a while. What I seem to...

    Hi folks, after a lot of researching, reading here, collaborating with friends, and designing, I've arrived at a tentative electrical design. I would appreciate feedback from the knowledgeable folks here; I'm set on most main components, but welcome any feedback, specifically on design, wiring...

    I’m looking at adding a microwave to my vans kitchen, and was wondering what microwaves people were getting... I’m sure size is a big factor, but for me a big issue is also the power draw, as I have a 1200 inverter and no way of changing it ( my electric system is goal zero based). I can add...

    I saw where you can buy a goal zero prewiring kit. Is it worth the cost? is there other places to buy something like that at a decent price? This one was over $1500. Thank you!!!

    Electrical isn't my strong suit, but I've been researching, researching, researching. My goal is pretty simple (outlined in the diagram). I'm geared toward a 12v system supported by a 200ah battery bank, the service battery and some solar. I'd like an inverter in there for a couple of hardwired...

    An installer I've hired says its normal to arc when plugging in the shore power receptacle. Anyone agree with this? Here's my layout if it helps.

    I've got a 2014 Ram Promaster 2500 High Roof I'm converting and I want to cover the whole interior with insulation, wood etc. Then I was working on the rear passenger side cargo area and I found this 12V power socket. I really don't want or have any need to plug into the battery from the rear of...

    Hello, I just bought a 2017 Ram Promaster this past Saturday. I dropped the van off at my house and went out to dinner in another car. I did not see that I had left the lights no, but there must be an automatic shut off because I didn't see them on when I came back home. I woke up the next...

    Hi everyone! I have a 2014 Promaster 2500 159" wheelbase. Over the summer 4 out of 5 lug nuts snapped off causing the tire to need some work. The van sat for 2 months but would periodically get started and ran fine up until this point. The day we had the van towed to the shop it wouldn't start...
