Since the last post about the cables I had done a lot of little things, most days for a few hours before I worked on my commercial project. This post shows mainly images of the things I have done. Facebook readers will not really have much to see from this post since only one image is copied to Facebook for each post.

More cables going in. I mark each cable with a tag.

This helps later to identify the cables when they get connected to the switchboards

I use three different types of cables in three colours, The main supply is 4 sqmm in orange, the standard power cable is the 2.5 sqmm cable in grey for the standard power points and a black 1.5 sqmm cable for lower current connections like the awning motor PoE routers etc.

Tagging the cables is essential with more going in.

One day I cleaned up my mess in the living area and brought the chairs and recliners in for a test. All fits well and enough space to get around everything easily. Unlike the American 5th wheeler’s we do not care for these huge living areas with sofas and dinner tables and oversized slide-outs for 6 people when you only travel as a couple.

We do not like to sit inside the kitchen or to look at it all the time for that matter. We never were really keen on the open floor plans of American or Australian houses, but this is just us. We will have a retractable curtain separating the kitchen and the living area. As a result all sections are separated from each other. Between living area, bedroom and my work area we have folding doors. In between the other tasks I have put together a DC-DC charger for my small Lithium battery for the chassis but still waiting for the housing.
