@Dotcom7 hi Dean. How is the positive air pressure set up going. Have you tested it on dusty roads yet. Also have you covered the vents or is the pump you use provide enough positive pressure.
Love your mods, might have to borrow a few.

RVD safety switch The unit uses the active and neutral sensor wires to monitor any voltage detection and current flowing to the earth/sensor wire to provide true earth leakage protection when running a generator or inverter power

View attachment 31906
230AH Deepcycle AGM Battery. This thing is awesome for the power hungry running the microwave, charging all the i devices the kids have. Lighter and smaller than 2 x 110AH batteries.

View attachment 31907 View attachment 31908 View attachment 31909

Internal bilge blower system to stop dust getting in when travelling in the red dirt using a washable filter.

Also done all the usual mods like tidy up Jayco's poor 12v wiring, added USB and acc plug outlets throughout, water filter for drinking water, convert hanging clothes cupboard to pantry, Fridge fan internal and external Mod, cover all water pipes and wiring underneath with flex conduit and plumber pipe covering, 50+ John Guest circlips on all water pipes as jayco generally forget to put them in, bed end storm covers, various hooks and netting to store power cables, broom and ladder under rear bed end.

Ive been a busy boy but the vans almost ready for the big half lap i will be doing with the family in August.
Getting excited with only a few months to go before we depart.


Hi Dean,
Just wondering how the blower set up is working now you have had it a while?
Cheers Adam.
