My father has an upcoming trip planned with his brother so it's time to get his truck set up for the Camper.
First item up is to install the wiring to connect the camper to the trucks Aux battery.
Four Wheel Camper uses an Attwood 3 prong trolling motor connector for the truck to camper power interface. Here I'm getting set up to splice the plug onto the Ancor marine wire.
On all my projects I like to use Ancor Pre-Tinned marine wire, each strand is tinned before it's made into the actual wire. Tinning helps keep the wire corrosion resistant in marine and non-marine environments and keeps the wire reliable for years to come.
Hole drilled in the corner of the bed for the power plug.
This is a de-burring tool and is sooooo handy. You use it to eliminate the sharp edges around the hole to prevent stress cracks from developing down the road. Because of the shape of the tip you can de-burr the inner and outer edges easily.
Terminating the wire on the fuse box next to the SwitchPro.
Getting ready to swap over the camper to my fathers rig. Before Shot.
Attaching the jacks.
We fabricated some stand off brackets from some plate steel so the front jacks will clear the fenders of the truck when we drop the camper and pull forward.
