@Omrib I have a 24-12V step down converter mounted under my hood. I believe mine is the Pyle 30amp one. think when Owhyee Jackass did his he pulled the 12V from his Redarc unit (not positive though)

I would like to have a Redarc and a 3rd battery in the future.
Would you use 12v for the accessories instead of staying with 24?
This is interesting to hear other people opinions and methodology for build.

Some 24v accessories are hard to find. Like stereos, and the relay-converter box is for the trailer light plug to work on trailers with 12v lights (most older trailers) I debated changing out my trailer lights to LED, which would operate on 24v, but I'm sure I would borrow someone else's trailer, plug it in and blow their lights out before I remembered what I'd done.

I have just finished removing all "cancer type" 12V aftermarket accessories from the vehicle.
That includes (but not limited to):
Central locking
Power windows
Automatic window close
Alarm system
Fuel auto pay system
Maglite charger
PAS (I think the horn itself weighed at almost 2 kg)
GPS locator (never fun when you are actually the fugitive...)
Automatic light shut-off
Code activated safety shut-off

Left, only the radio and trailer light socket.

More rust repair. Debating on continuing with my current process on the driver's side rocker, or waiting for a rocker to come available...kind of sick of this project. Need to spray what I've done with some primer and start spreading some filler.

Started digging into the rain gutters. Not as bad as I was expecting. There's a couple holes here and there. Mostly from installing the 3rd door I believe. Really glad there seems to be all good metal.
I'll seal the holes up with fiberglass and then a coat of rattlecan 045 paint. To reseal the seams I'll use Sikaflex 221. I have a bunch in white left over from another project.

Made some progress on pull-out fridge . Taped paper towels to fridge and sprayed them heavily with H2O during welding. Totally forgot it should work with just the left door open. Lucked out... it does.

In an earlier iteration, I just had it bolted to the shelves and I placed something like a sleeping bag on the lid...removed for food grabs.
I will soon discover if the Amazon drawer slides can handle the punishment offroad.
