I'm sure you realize that no one here is trying to put pressure on you, it's just that you have an entire thread group that is watching and everyone wants you to succeed in the biggest, most positive way. And you will of course sooner or later and I just wish we had a 20 or 30 year veteran on RF that could help in any way. Unfortunately we don't so all the would be battery run rig, wannabes are saying a little prayer for you from time to time.
stay cool and the best of luck

No pressure...I have definitely taken too long to build this truck. Due to my job and then obligations on the weekend I have to really plan ahead to find time to work on the truck. However, I, as well as many others are wanting this build to come to climax, so I am rushing. I am now dedicating Sundays to work on the truck and I do what I can in my garage in the evenings, depending on what needs to be done as I cannot use loud saws at night in the garage.
I put an ad on CL a month ago for someone to come out and install my Ansul. I got replies but the contractors all required that I buy the Ansul from them to have it installed. However, I got a reply today and I spoke to a guy that is coming out Monday or Wednesday to install for $500, I might be over paying but I just want it done. Other than that, I have small things to complete:
1. Build/weld 2 brackets to hold the LP tank to truck.
2. Complete large under counter drawer that will house the cooler for drinks.
3. Complete small missing trim pieces.
4. Attached battery bay underneath truck. 5
. I cannot get a mobile mechanic that specializes in electrical to come out. So I am having truck towed to a nearby shop. My current issue is that the last mobile mechanic idiot that I had come out, took my steering wheel to get rebuilt, took him two weeks to get it back to me and he said he is missing a bolt, so he just partially installed the steering wheel and now I cannot start the truck. I did not bother to call him back. I just cut my loses. In order to have the truck towed, I need to get it out of my driveway to the street because the tow truck cannot tow from the rear of the truck. So I will use a pick up truck to push out to the street after the Ansul is installed next week. This is the last major hurdle, the guy at the shop is going to fix all the electrical issues. (Not sure of cost yet)
6. Pick up and install the refrigerator from Home Depot. ($300)
7. Pick up and install the 27" sandwich prep from local restaurant supply. ($800)
7. Pay the last large fee to have the wrap installed ($3000).
9. Install external speakers, internal speakers, radio system, back up camera and monitor. (saving for last)
