Hey, Don.

Glad to be of help. There's a good description of my charging system, complete with photos, starting here in my build thread. There is also exhaustive discussion of the DC>AC>DC charging method [url=http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?p=1040003#p1040003]starting here[url] in the Charging While Towing topic.

It works good and you end up with an on-board charger. Super convenient. You don't have to remember to do anything and the battery stays happy.

I don't remember where I got the U.S. map. I just googled US Map until I found one I liked.

Next time you're in the neighborhood, PM me and I'll give you the $1.98 tour for free. Plus we can go downtown for some live music and brewskis.

Thanks, lfhoward. $65 is more like it. I think my relay was $10-$15. We'll see how the relay holds up. It's energized whenever the truck is running, so could be a failure point. As the absent-minded sky diver once said, "So far, so good."
