    Thank you for your reply! Interesting that you mentioned the "battery conditioner", I saw you had mentioned the Power Pulse in one of your posts. Not many people seem to be talking about those on this forum.

    Hi Orton, first appreciate all you have contributed to this forum and your website! It is has been very helpful!

    I saw you got your Lifeline battery from Arc Battery in Sausalito Ca. I spoke to them on the phone recently - they some used 8D batteries from the Coast Guard. Was your battery new or used? Any thoughts on buying used from Arc?

    Hi Dave,

    I am going to be starting a van build next year and I like a lot of your posts that I have seen. I will be setting it up to live in as my 28' TT is too big! I will be at quartzite in a few months and hope to see a bunch of different designs.

    Where did you get ideas from for your buildout?

    John

    Orton, thanks for responding. I have wanted Solar from Day one!
    Because I muddled my message, in explaining who I was.
    My main Question is, do you use Alternator power as well. And if given a choice, would you Install the Larger Alternator I already have. 250 amp. Vehicle has 150 amp on it. I would Isolate it of course.
    Put House Battery under passenger seat. Use B to B Charger. The dual style that you can connect solar too! Thanks for any info.
    If 150 amp works well enough with this system then I can sell big 250 Alt, for 1/3 of the money for Solar.
    Peace, Joe Mannix

    Hi!! I want to buy a new Ford Transit 350 SRB, but has not yet decided what kind of engine is better to take with turbines or standard 3.7. As the engine runs 3.5L V6? How many miles I traveled? There were problems with how the engine or not? as turbines work ?!

    Hello Orton,

    I remember reading your treatise on connecting water sources to the gray water tank via the bottom of the tank to avoid needing a P-trap. Have you actually tested the concept yet? Did it work? I also remember reading (somewhere) about an anti-backup valve. Thoughts?

    Gracias,
    Rich Macaluso
