I installed my Lagun table today, I ordered the mount only from Lagun NW LLC for $189.00, including shipping and tax. I made a small table from 1/2" Apple ply, the table is small because it has to fit on the back of my galley cabinet.

Very nice, and a fork in the road nonetheless.

Where Val parks her van she doesnít get a lot of sun, especially during the winter months. So I added another Renogy slim panel in front of the MaxxAir. I used mounts from eBay instead of Heiní sad they were cheaper (I used his his on the first 200w), and they are definitely not as stout. Iím thinking that I will attach something 80/20 1517 series to connect all of the panels along the side, and then a piece across the front panel, just because it will look cleaner. But thatís an additional $100+ to spend another day... I just wanted to see how this addition panel looked.

Donít pay attention to the cable bundle; I only had 10í cables on hand and couldnít find my other MC4 connectors to cut down the cables to proper length, and it was windy and low-50ís out (thatís chilly for us Californians... )






Cheers,
Greg

Seems like the van is doing the same thing...started, ran very briefly, then died. Cranks over but won't start. Luckily this time it is in our driveway so we aren't stranded. Thinking the first place to start would be getting a code scanner.

Every T1N owner should have a good sprinter specific scanner. They are cheaper than paying a dealer to read the codes!

I just use one of those displays that you always have on the dash, only I am cheap so I went with Ultragauge

When I got that issue it claimed I was dealing with an EGR issue (error code 404, engine not found :), so I cranked it up a few more times and drove it hard, and the problem went away. I will need to clean it someday, but a lot of the soot issues can be ameliorated by warming everything up.

Installed the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness 118649 with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector from Tekonsha. It rained all morning and was a wet/cold install but the wiring kit was easy to install and seems to work well. The hitch did not arrive at the shop yesterday though so I've got trailer wiring but no hitch...
