Sprinter Photography Adventure Van: Delivers Aug 5, then proving it out in the field

I’m taking delivery of my Sprinter photography adventure van on August 5th in Reno, from thence before any upfitting it will get a trial run stubbed out with simple table and chair, bed platform, etc.

The main problem will be power for the computer gear; I may have to temporarily pop the hood and run things off the auxiliary battery* (basic power inverter with alligator clips), since the Lithionics 5120 Wh battery won’t go in for 2 weeks or so. Also I don't think I can take the iMac as the computer, as the power consumption may be too high for the auxiliary battery, so I’ll have to use the laptop this go-round trial run.'

* See “X27 Additional Battery Package $380” on the overview page.

Phase 1 upfitting to follow in mid to late August: Lithionics 5120 Wh battery, Xantrex / Schneider Electric Freedom 815-3012 SW 3000 watt inverter/charger, side and rear and rear door windows, marine grade flooring, roof fan, skid plates, Cooper Discovery AT/3 235/85R16 E-rated tires (11 ply equivalent).

Phase 2 will be late November; I want to give myself a few months of field use before I finalize the final built-in desk shape and other details.
