RV Deadbolt – Milenco Lock Install & Review

A big part of nomadic life is about exploring strange new places. Let’s face it though, there are some crazies out there. You may think we are crazy for living life full-time in a truck camper. But, we are referring to the more murder-you-in-your-sleep types. We camp in some out of the way places, as well…

The MaxXfan Deluxe Installation

The MaxXfan Deluxe by MaxXair is an amazing ceiling fan for installation in every type of nomadic vehicle.

Installing a Grey Tank in a Nomadic Home

A big part of our nomadic plan is to be able to travel anywhere. The problem is that we bought a used 2009 Palomino Bronco 1500 which doesn’t have a grey tank to capture the sink water. What it has is a passthrough pipe to displace the sink water on the outside of the truck….

Truck Camper Canvas Replacement

One of the next projects we undertook in the series of YOLOM renovations was replacing the hinged back (flip-up) wall with a piece of vinyl canvas. Palomino put a solid back wall piece on the 2008 Bronco 1500 which is flipped up into position when the roof is raised. They did this to allow for…

If you are planning to do your own system please educated yourself well in regards to electrical currents and understand the risks involved. If you wire…
