Interior Electrical System Rough-In

As you might have discovered this posting is somewhat out of order considering there are earlier posts showing the camper already sitting on my truck, which is true.  The interior has been completed in regards to paint, shower, wiring...all I need now is the fresh water tank.  So, yes it is sitting on the truck with interior complete for the most part.  

This part of the build was just not uploaded within the appropriate timeframe, that's all.  little behind guys!

The interior work came at a time when I was extremely busy with other business ventures.  Lots of the construction occurred within crunches 'for time' thus I simply snapped away with the photos and did not have the time to upload and blog during that busy time.  So here we are now!

As you recall from the earlier phases of construction, the entire camper is Nida Core honeycomb panels except for the rear wall.  (the reason why? i chose wood)

I insulated the rear wall with residential construction foam approximately 1" thick which will be wrapped with some form of paneling on the interior.

Black SJ cord fastened in place is a 5-6', 6 conductor pigtail plugged into 6 port receptacle feeding parking lights, left turn, right turn and brakes.  The fifth and sixth contact was chosen out of the receptacle to feed my rear backup light which is operated from a switch in the truck cab.

Placed horizontal strips of wooden reinforcement in this region where one's back would rest when sitting on the bench, to prevent bowing and damage to the thin wall paneling.

 Insulation going up in wall region where shower stall will be installed, notice the sloped seat in this region.  The seat was sloped to allow for water drainage when taking showers.
 Insulation in place in door before interior panel side was installed. Also can see some of the incipient stages of inlet power installation going on in the background.
