1000 WATT SOLAR OFF GRID CAMPERVAN // van life meetup

so here I am working on the van this morning Saturday morning beautiful day and this is my first solo vlog I'm not sure where Becca and Eamon went to but obviously they know something and who shows up at our good friend here Eric he doing here and he also is nice enough to lend us this tool it's like a zero clearance saw oscillator and sure a lot of people know what it is the beauty of this is you can face cut straight into the material whatever you want to do we wanted to cut this guy right off right here that'll do it so the bottom line is what it does is I can attest to it we'll save a whole bunch of your calls oh I thought you were gonna say this puppy will correct them you have it as long as you need it I'm sure it'll save you some time all right thanks buddy these are funny pants good morning tripod I just had a visitor this morning my first fan no yeah yeah yeah Eric Eric the electrician he said he's come to see me said the other guys got a lot enough attention he wanted to come and see me are you putting another strap underneath no no I oh that's brilliant yeah yeah brilliant thank you yeah that's brilliant like that you don't get an idea that's good only happen like once in a every decade they're rare all right correct me if I'm mistaken what I think he's done is he bolted this board onto the face of this traced out the lines where this cross slots are gonna be I hope otherwise it's not gonna fit and then this is gonna be the the one that pulls out to the side bench moment of truth we just spent 20 minutes just putting this board together it is mighty beautiful after it met these a little love a little love and affection what do you think we got it too tight okay so let's put this pour it on we gotta get this cardboard on the bottom side so I'm gonna crawl underneath and just try and fire some nails in there to get it held what a clever guy it'll be great if you could flip that uh yes there you go yeah I'm gonna start firing where its title as tight where I am that was a pretty difficult job that extra support I've added this little cross beam just with l-brackets all right let's get this on here no a pizza with your tea freestyle Friday I'm gonna do lunch on the go I'm gonna quickly pop over to our mattress guy yeah I got a mattress guys in the same building that we're in it makes these really expensive organic mattresses but he gave us some offcuts last time I'm gonna see if he has anything crust he doesn't really sell mattresses like offcuts like that so I don't know if I would like to refer you guys to go see him but if you need like a really gangster organic luxury high-end mattress then definitely some organic mattress it's a place to go he does stuff for like celebrities so apparently one time who was it something big like like Lady Gaga was like in Toronto and she didn't like the bed that she was on in the hotel so she called John and she was like dude I need a mattress boa and John like rushed I was like a Sunday night or something rushed out to get Lady Gaga's mattress so you need like a California king mattress give John a call and I'm all you want to try a slice of vegan pizza we are just kind of having a little chat ski we're actually thinking that we're gonna leave this situation as is so we've got the slots working we don't have anything to connect the slots to but we've got the concept figured out but I don't want to start boxing this in until we have the electrical done because you want to have lots of room to work with so we're gonna leave that leave the bed and jump over to the kitchen after much discussion we have decided we are not gonna buy the Home Depot cupboards you just have to modify modify modify so that's not gonna work we're gonna serve a very cheap buy at the end of the day you get what you pay for we're gonna custom-make this and we're starting from scratch so here's what we've done to start we've decided that we're gonna have the counter at 36 that allows an extra inch for the actual countertop that we're gonna buy from Home Depot because that's what I bought and it seems to work really great steeps like 60 70 bucks and then we're just gonna start by building a pretty basic structure of a box and then leave you know the appropriate room for our fridge we got the CRX 100 shutout – Dometic so I'm unqualified to be even talking about this but I'm a handyman and a man's son and he wanted me to open here my dad no hi my name is Bob okay so anyway we're squaring this up you owe me to make a mark now yeah it is if you just open up the back door I might have moved it into the front oh did you maybe check the front no I moved it hey Peter you want to say hi to the blog hello you got a good joke yeah look at my pants I'm looking for donations so you might you Computers like set in the trends here for all the hipsters he's got the socks and sandals the tar on the pants the sweater from the 70s and the hat from Argentina this is a classic Peter of it I'm waiting for the workup Argentina to win the World Cup keep waiting man kind of at a standstill in regards to making stuff for the kitchen because it's Saturday we don't really want to drop the Home Depot it's been our Saturday at Home Depot so we're just trying to figure out some other things we can do we got to serve maybe one electrical it's believe it or not we're trying to call to the plan we've got some homies that just showed up bnm van lloyd you guys met them when we were in Collingwood but now they've done some serious mods their vans all done what up girl love the the top rock there bro looks amazing check out the solar situation a thousand watts of solar to be able to tilt that is insane that also probably makes it pretty easy to clean oh yeah Rayna and I are gonna pop out to Canadian Tire because we need to get a little bit of supplies because Mainers gonna help me install a high-altitude kit on our Espar heater as well as if you guys remember a lot of your comments we're saying that we ran a cable through a piece of wire or through a piece of sheet metal and it didn't have a grommet on it so we're gonna get that probably too much information anyway we're going to Canaan tire he decided we are taking the bike I just drove around the parking lot he told me if I dropped it at the but thankfully I didn't drop it do I get on this intersection here I guess these lights are still out from a crazy storm we had yesterday freeways switch this afternoon is turning into a band life meet up some other homies are just rolled by and it's cool because we met both these
