It is connected to two separate power boards. This circuit is solely for 120v power from a external source to feed cooking and other mains-powered equipment.
· A box-style bed base with two built-in drawers is installed, covered with a 3 inch thick memory-foam mattress. The front-end of this bed is a separate box with inbuilt drawer, able to be unlatched from the rear section to allow greater room in the area behind the driver’s seat, if required.
· 3 level bookshelf above the bed and covering the left rear window aperture. Shelves have 3 inch retaining clear polycarbonate facings to maintain books in position.
· Behind this bookshelf a remaining recess contains a DeWalt compact cordless vacuum cleaner.
· In front of and above the driver’s seat the headliner shelf contains a CB radio, and a Police frequency scanner, the latter connected to an external Austin antenna. A Valentine One radar detector is connected with a small display box at driver’s knee height allowing the main box to remain unlit on activation, with only the knee-level box being lit to indicate position of the source, thus preventing Police Cruiser viewing of the activation from behind.
· A 5-inch Garmin truck GPS screen is mounted to the center of the dashboard.
· A Canadian-made battery-operated marine low volume exhaust fan is mounted through the roof just inside the driver’s side rear door. This powered nominally by two AA batteries. The original intent was that these batteries be rechargeable NiMH ones charged by the items small solar panel during the day. Its intent being to exhaust exhaled carbon dioxide during sleep, when turned on at night. While this worked well for initial years, at last sighting it was non-functional with new charged batteries. The system did however have a couple of flaws. The solar panel is shielded by the roof rack, thus served no useful purpose. Thus the batteries need to be replaced with fully charged ones each morning, which was technically a bit fiddly being done upside down. The earlier intent was to replace this unit for one without solar panel, but that has not been done. The vent does allow slight passive ventilation by pushing the motor housing toward the roof panel, and is closed by pulling it down again. It must be closed during rain or water will ingress.
