    Here is the Tank and frame fitted in and bolted through the van floor. it is also fixed along the top of the frame inside the van hence the long piece built in the frame on previous pics.

    Now the control board.
    First I cut a piece of plywood, drilled to fit the side bolts on the tank frame and sprayed black

    Then mount the controller and pump.

    Then drill through and fit all the wiring at the rear. Follow wiring instructions on your controller for correct fitting. I also fitted the voltometer into a small box I had lying around.

    Then I fitted a lawnmower plug to the back so the control board can be removed if need be.

    johnny, The lawn mower socket was just handy. you can use any socket really to connect the wires or not have one at all. It is a way of making the control board seperate so you can remove it all in one go if need be

  8. Lawnmower socket to 12v dc?
    These pics are great. Thorough job! Even conduit on rear of board!

    I'm thinking of changing from trolley to van system. Or being able to use both.
    What do you guys do if you can't get van close enough?

    Use a longer hose maybe?

     
  10. Not practical if you're on a farm roof cleaning panels. Just gonna get tangled up and not a good idea to have heavy plant and vehicles driving over it.
