    So I had another productive weekend
    Finished up my platform and drawer/ table version 2.0
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Should hold a couple more camping chairs and misc stuff along with my roll up table and tarp awning shown here
    [​IMG]
    With room for my bedding up front
    [​IMG]
    It was tax free day in town and I had a gift card to the local outdoor store. So I picked up this table I ended up only paying $30 for it with the discount no sales tax and a the grift card
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Now on to my DIY awning
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    THis was just a test run nothing was really tight. When I go to use it, it will be a whole lot tighter and better attached
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    All rolled up and attached to the roof rack if I want to keel it there
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And it will fit inside the cover with the table
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Finally I got pretty much everything I will need to wire up all my roof rack lights and back up camera. Also going to put a 12v constant outlet in the bed near my factor bed plug

    Nice, dude!
    You've got quite the shop to work in, I'm jealous!
    Suggestion: You might consider making those wooden fold-out legs for your storage bin/table adjustable so you can make the table level if you're parked on a slope, unless those are just the prototypes for something else.

    No I was prob just going to go with those. I was thinking about maybe trying to find a old ez up an steal those legs to make it adjustable. What would you use?

    I don't know if it would work with your current attachment point, but you could try finding some cheap used tripod with adjustable telescoping legs that you could rip apart for just the legs. There's probably something else out there that's actually meant for this, but that's the simplest thing I can think of off the top of my head.
    My other idea was like the old jack stands where you could take two pipes, one that fits inside the other and have a pin that goes through two holes in the larger diameter pipe to stop the smaller diameter one and just have multiple holes. But then you run the risk of losing the pin!

    I have that same table and I found that stuff slides around on the top of it pretty easy. I fixed that by spraying plastidip on the table top and now stuff doesn't slide on the table anymore

    Thats quite a nice basket of electrical goodies... where did you go to buy all that fun blue sea stuff?

    Also, noob question here. I'm getting ready to add the fuse block myself, what's the purpose of the circuit breaker? Is it necessary? I see some folks run it, but many do not.

    You should always run either a breaker or a large fuse as close to the battery as possible. I think if you are not seeing the breaker in some setups, there is a fuse somewhere.

    Edit - Here is mine, not the cleanest setup, but you get the point.

    Plus the fuse box itself is only rated at 100 amps IIRC so that is a way to prevent yourself from overloading the box. If you didn't have that and were running all your accessories you might fry it up. Where with the circuit breaker it would just pop.

    My setup:

    seeing as the blue sea boxes are only rated for 100 amps..yes.you should have a 100amp fuse or breaker for the main power wire for the fuse block.

    and any power wire you add you will want to add a fuse or breaker.

    Clean setup there Pete, I need to redo mine at some point and make a platform like you got there and get everything off of the stock fuse box. Everything works great, but not the most well setup.
