    Tonight I finally got around to adding some better lighting in my van. The stock lights the came with the Promaster suck and they turn off after a few minutes and can’t be turned back on unless you hit the lock button on the key fob. So I ordered 8 recessed RV lights off Amazon

    My plan is to eventually mount them into the ceiling once I get the tongue and groove wood mounted, but I just can’t wait any longer. The nice thing about the Promaster is there are plenty of places to easily mount these lights and running the wires was a breeze.

    I just have a few more little things to do and install a switch, then I can make a glorious video of the lumens at work.

    A roll of mylar bubble insulation would be easy to install, then you wouldn't need a towel to keep your Turbo from hitting the roof.

    Keeps it cooler in summer as well.

    The final wiring and switch install will be done this morning. I bought a protected switch. I don’t need something falling over on it draining my battery. If it can happen, it will happen.

    Was behind one of your vans today. No way would they be practical up here they are TOO LOW to get around in the snow. And if was built by FIAT no way.

    I love my Promaster so much. Especially how low to the ground it is. Makes it easy to get equipment in and out. Front wheel drive is perfect for ice and snow.

    Front wheel drive is also good for Soccer moms driving their kids around for soccer and gymnastics practice in their minivans.
