    Hey there, I'm pursuing a DC-AC-DC charging solution for my conversion, ala @orton and @gregoryx. Walls will be fully finished (hopefully without holes my kid can shove stuff into), so I'd prefer to avoid mounting the inverter in the wall. It seems like an ideal spot to mount it would be in...

    Okay this is a long story so bear with me. About a month ago I moved from NY to NC. I did 3 trips with the Transit packed to the rafters. After that was done I suddenly noticed. The house batteries are no longer charging. I was charging off the alternator while driving, in order to keep my...

    I installed a Abso Kisae DC-DC MPPT 30amp charge controller. I am installing 4g cable from the 60 amp CCP power post on the driver's seat to the charge controller. This will enable me to charge my house batteries. My question is can I run the negative wire from the negative post on my extra...

    I've settled on a DC-AC-DC electrical system design I am happy with. Some of it blatantly stolen from @gregoryx and others (thanks!) I would appreciate comments, questions, and criticism. I have a 2020 with dual alternators/batteries, so lots of spare amps available. The roof rack will be used...

    I have two CCPs under my vans driver seat. One on top is larger and smaller on the bottom. What is the amp capacity for each one. Also, what is a safe amount of current I can draw from each or both and not create too large a load for the alternator? Thank you!!

    I have a Yeti 1400 with the Yeti link module for car mode. It is connected to the CCP via Yeti EC8 cable and cable extension. Yeti had been charging just fine when van was running as it is designed to do. I noticed yesterday that it was no longer charging the Yeti. Customer Service at Yeti...

    I finally did it... I cut a hole in the roof and installed a Maxxair Fan. This is a big deal for me because I have no carpentry or automotive skills. The YouTube video that I found simplest and easiest to follow is from Levity Vans -https://youtu.be/5rkETMx6_Iw These are my lessons learned...

    I have a 2020 Transit 1500 with single battery and a single "always on" ccp post. I want to install a charger for my Yeti 1500x in the area behind the driver's seat. I have investigated converting the ccp power to "engine on" only but it seemed to involve accessing some small pins inside the...

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone know the time out for the 175A CCP2 on a 2020 transit. The BEMM says it is a controlled stud, unlike CCP1 which is hot all of the time. My question is what does controlled mean. I hooked my multimeter up to the CCP2 turned the van on and then off, and then waited...

    Hey Everyone, I wanted to share my install video for the Nilight 52" light bar I mounted to my Flatline Van Co. Roof Rack. Overall very happy with the quality of the product and I've had it mounted for about 2 months now and couldn't be happier. I wired the harness to the CCP and routed the...

    I just got my 2020 Transit Cargo van with modified vehicle wiring system, auxiliary fuse panel, and dual AGM batteries. (They accidentally ordered the Upfitter Interface Module instead of the Upfitter Switches - the UIM seems too complicated for me and I wasn't going to use the Upfitter Switches...

    I'm not having any luck locating the part number for the CCP plastic cover. Does anyone happen to know that part number or a safe alternative for covering the connection point? Thanks!

    I'm green in this arena. Took my van on its maiden 4800 mile voyage in March, got cut short due to the 'Rona. I tripped the breaker off the CCP to shut everything off and it sat for over a month. When I went back into the van and reconnected the breaker (80A Bussman), my Kisae Abso DMT1250 B2B...
