This is the eleventh of a series of videos on how I converted my van into a cozy, but tiny, little home on wheels. In this one, I buy and install my new battery bank: I have four, AGM 6-Volt Golf-Cart batteries made by Full River. First, I connected each pair in series to make them 12-Volt, then I connect those together in parallel to make one big 12-volt, 450 amp-hour battery bank. I’ve been extremely pleased with them!
My deepest and most sincere thanks go to my good friend Terry who worked and guided me through this whole process. He had the patience to convince me to do things the right way as opposed to the fast and easy way.
No matter how cheap your budget, you can learn something from this video about how to turn your car, van, caravan or RV into a surprisingly cheap mobile, tiny house on wheels! Then you can live the life of your dreams by adopting a minimalist, simple and frugal life of travel as a vandweller, gypsy, nomad, traveler or even a prepper by dropping out of the Rat Race and becoming a full-time Vandweller or RVer!
