    Ok.... so here go's a few pic's

    First we tried the RTT over the back of the truck with the changing room attached....



    I wasn't that happy with that setup, I couldn't easily access the fridge etc in the back of the truck so.... we turned the tent around and opened it over the side of the truck... so much better





    Now we can add an awning to the back of the truck for shade & rain protection either with the tent open or just stopped for lunch on the trail.

    Also added the relays & additional loom for the Hella's that'll be on the front of the rack to the 'battery/jack box', and tied into the additional fuse box beneath the dash that supplies the fridge, back-up lights and tent lights.





    Tomorrow will have a first hand inpression of the tent as we'll be sleeping in it tonight on the back lawn

    Unfortunatly we have a water ingress problem with the new tent

    I contacted the distributor yesterday & he's driving up from Kelowna today to inspect it... that's what I call service

    Autohome have a reputation for supporting their customers.... that just proves it

    That's not very good. At least they are looking after it.

    Rep's just left, confirmed the issue & will get back to me tomorrow. Just got to wait & see now. In the meantime, back to working on the storage rack.

    How did those back up LED's work out? I need something for my truck and I like the look of those.

    Prity good, light output is better that the OE ones that were in the rear pillars but that's expected as there alot lower. Will get a pic with them on & off for you.
