dsi water boiler for brunnhilde - part 2

Today I warped up the installation of the DSI water boiler in Brunnhilde in putting in the finishing touches. The loose end is mounting the switch panel in the dwelling cabin.

dsi water boiler for brunnhilde

Strangely, the motivation for my wanting to replace the pilot-light lit water boiler in Brunnhilde to one with direction spark ignition (DSI) is not so much for the ability to remotely turn on and off the boiler at will. I really don't find it a bother to having to light the pilot-light with a match. Though it may be a difficult if there is a stiff breeze.

dc fridge conversion - isolde part 2

In this post I address the front door insert of the refrigerator, and the decision on the direction of the door swing.

dc fridge conversion - isolde part 1

This is a project to convert Isolde's factory thermal siphon refrigerator to a modern 12V DC only. The new refrigerator adds more than double the capacity and can for he first time keep food at the needed temperatures. Together with the refrigerator conversion I will also be upgrading the audio system and the axillary battery system. The upgrading of the audio system will make room for my planned location for the batteries under the bench seat.

I have been in a painting spree this few days. Spray painting takes a lot of work especially the preparations and clean up.
