You nailed the desire to create a modern Westfalia.
So much innovation with innovative materiala sourcing, attention to detail, and design concepts....plus the fully detailed build documentation set a precedent for others to follow.

Nice to see that people appreciated it in person.
Thank you for your positive comments, which make me feel it was worth my hard work.

THese were G4 bulbs, perhaps no longer available. If I remember correctly, I bent pins to make the bulb fit. Try this search https://www.google.com/search?safe=a...4dUDCAY&uact=5

Good luck.

I recently purchased a Isotherm CR85EL AC/DC refrigerator and the Smart Energy Control. I was not aware of the compatibility problems at the time and thought I was out of luck until I found your build. This will be a great help. I couldn't find how you finally mounted the blue box or the flag fittings you were talking about. If possible could you post some details on the finished product. Thank you. Great build!
Norm Henderson

PS: Were the the other wires on the cr85 discarded in the process, leaving only the wires in your diagram and the AC wires as the completed hook-up?

I mounted the blue box in a reasonably easily accessible place. I need to remove the sink, stove, countertop to access it. Donít have pictures of flag connectors but used them on the SECOP connector. I had limited clearance on galleyís front panel outlets and used flag connectors there as well. Pending on your clearances you could use just regular straight connectors.

Thanks George, the remote mounting answers primary question. On the wiring diagram you furnished you show the connections from the Danfoss unit to the Smart Controller. The diagram shows terminals A C and D with no wires attached. Is this correct? Thank you very much for your help.

I draw a schematic to minimize mistakes during actual wiring and for future troubleshooting reference so attached schematic indeed reflects my work, way better than my grey hair memory. See the Danfoss BD35 diagram about A, C, D connections.

Thank you very much!!! This tells me all I need to know. The new wiring schematic even shows the dip switch settings. Thanks.

I REALLY love the SS fresh and gray water tanks you had made for your conversion. Any chance you could share the drawings for these tanks?

Thanks so much,

David
