Just family problems and I'm getting older and running out of time.

My plan is to offer the truck the way it is.
Or the truck back to the military truck it was. With all the repairs.
And sell the box as it is now.

Trying to figure out the prices for the stuff. Makes me mad just looking at what could be.

Sorry that things didn't work out like you planned, 1951M1078. I have been there for sure. It's no fun when dreams crash.

Guessing you thought it all through plenty.

But think you might pull it off somehow with a Plan B?

Fitting the power wall.
View attachment 817252
Electricians ("Sparkies"), and Electrical work always struck me as some kind of special magic club.

My Seabee rating was BU, Builder we were masons and carpenters essentially. Always mystified by Sparky and his trade.

I mean plumbing I understand (Holy Trinity), and I just approached electrical work as plumbing where where electricity is the water and wiring is the pipes.

Yeah, I'm not too smart.

If it's not TOO complicated can you just run down what the major components are, on that power wall, and what they "do"?

I'm not too smart. But I WOULD like to be!

Thanks a million, 1951M1078!

When it's broken down like that, it is all a whole lot more understandable. Excellent.

BTW, you might have mentioned it already, but how much homework did you do on the Inverter, and how did you decide on that one?

Wednesday is going to be a turning point. We all know this should have been looked at way before this point. But that didn't work out. It is and has always been in GOD's hands and now we must stay strong and do what HE will ask from us. I do not know what that will be. I ask all to look into your heart and ask GOD for his hand to help guide yours. May GOD's grace be on all of you. Amen.
