Great work! Impressive!
What are these "tables" of which you speak? How can I see them?
I will have to look into Lynx distributors. Do you have a favorite URL for that?
USB receptacles are 5V at most, maybe 1.5 amps, right? I'm doing this off of the top of my head. (On a short search, it seems about right).
I have some 12volt ports, but I fuse them according to what is plugged into them. I see what the device is rated for in amps, then use that in my fuse panel. I think I only have 5 and 10 amp fuses, according to photos in my link on my truck (I'm away from home right now, yes, my truck).
Thank you for sharing time and knowledge with me!
Thank you. Your link led me to this link: https://www.victronenergy.com/media/pg/Lynx_Distributor/en/index-en.html

I’ve been taking my time and journaling my work. Writing down my thoughts and ideas helps me to identify the ridiculous ones and research the plausible ones.
I’m getting pretty close to being ready to pull the engine and transmission.
I’m calling the roof done for now.
A sea of white, I know. Unless the sky is overcast and threatening rain I really can’t see a thing up there.
I got the seats out of the cab, and that nasty mat, and sterilized the area. The floor had some rust areas that I grinded down and hit with Rustoleum. Some other spots I had to excavate and repair.
I’m not going to do anything else to the cab until the mechanical work is done. But I know that once the truck is running we’re gonna want to put the seats in and drive it around. But not so fast. That’s when I’ll cut the pass-through, paint the floor with bed liner, and install a back wall with a sliding door. I’ll template the back wall of the cab tomorrow and begin fabricating the back wall / sliding door. So when the time is right, some of that will be ready to go.
I’ve also been building the back wall / doors assembly that replaces the garage type door the truck came with. .
It’s 2x3 framing, skinned outside with ½” ply, inside with ¼” ply, covered with PMF and a few coats of paint. I think that’s the industrial appearance I had in mind. Wrapping the insides of the doors with PMF as well was an afterthought, and I didn’t have enough clearance for it. I ended up sanding off the PMF on about half the edges on the inside. The 3-point lock is from McMaster-Carr and I think it’s pretty sexy, so I dolled it up a bit with some paint and some acorn nuts. Apparently I’m going with a safety theme for the back doors.
I intend to add red and white reflective tape to the top and bottom of the doorway, and a safety strap of yellow 1” tubular nylon webbing across the back door just to make sure I don’t stumble out of the door while opening it.
And yeah, I’m painting everything before I install or fully assemble it. Framing, the backs of panels, the undersides of panels – it’s all getting a coat of paint. I have paint leftover from sprucing up my home, so I’m using it to stabilize all my wood.
[size=medium]I also laid down some floor. 1” XPS under ¾” ply, staggered so that the edge of the plywood lands in the middle of a sheet of XPS. Here’s my fuel pump access opening. You can’t see the fuel tank in this picture because the ramp is in the way. This will also be my floor vent. I envision being able to remove a chunk of my floor to access the fuel pump, or to drop in a vent – really just a frame, with a bug screen on the bottom and a piece of aluminum with holes in it on top. As a floor vent it’s already a blessing. Somehow it’s letting in cool air from under the truck, which is nice right about now. [/size
