Installing new cargo light probably next week. Hoping you guys can contribute on how to install it. Would it be easy enough for a beginner or just leave it to expert as I might just damage some wires 😁
Low voltage electrical work with small gauge wire is pretty easy, the only tool you should need is wire stripper/crimper. There should plenty of videos on stripping wire and crimping connectors, and you can practice before you do the real thing.
I was able to add a strip of LESs down the center of the van and wired them directly to the existing side light in the cargo bay. I tapped directly into the switched side of the light so the LEDs essentially replace the bulb of the factory side light. The draw of the LEDs wasn't enough to confuse the body computer and they work as the side light does.
......Which makes me a little crazy as the side lights are on a body computer run timer and they shut off after a few minutes on normal "door open" switching and after about 20 min. if switched on manually. So far I have found no way to get around this and plan to run a direct power feed to the battery with a bulkhead mounted switch by the side door. Having the lights fade off while working inside the cargo area is a right pain in the butt, although it does mean you won't leave the lights on and drain the battery.
Following the manual https://www.ramsareus.com/docs/82214239.pdf and watching installation guide today. Feels like the only problem I would encounter is correctly returning the screw to where it belongs. Seems a pretty easy job. Hoping it would work tomorrow and that I would not miss a step.
I have a Lifep04 battery and it is a long story, but I think it got drained and it has been pretty cold here so I unhooked the solar charger from the battery. I was checking the voltage with my Victron BMV712 and it seems to be sitting at a high 13.7ish volts and then one day i noticed it was...
Just bought a 2019. I miss having the cd player of other trucks...there is no place that I can see where I can just plug in the portable one from a car so that I can use the speakers of the Promaster. Is there a way to use a cd player or must I do a major purchase somehow of electronics work. I...
Does anyone have an idea of how difficult it is to add Parksense Rear Park Assist and lane change assist to a 2019 1500 promaster? The van does have a backup camera. Also any idea what a dealership might charge? Thanks much!!
I work remote from the van, so need both a wifi repeater and something to help cell phone reception. Sometimes I rely on cell phone only for mobile hotspot. Need to have video conferences via mobile hotspot (no wifi available) - so best cell reception is desired.
Have an Alfa wifi Camp Pro 2...
