Welcome to the Purrfect Campers DIY Zone
Articles, Methods and Ideas for DIY Camper Projects
I will will be placing all of my camping related DIY content in this area of PurrfectCampers.com instead of on TimsAP.com (links to content here will remain there). TimsAP.com will be reserved for home improvement projects, but that is on hold while I get this resource built up.

I will be adding content to the DIY Zone as my time allows. I started with three articles I wrote a little while back and was finally able to get a format together to get them published. Included with most of the articles will be a link to Resource information and Youtube videos. It is very minimal right now, but I will be adding to that as well.

Also, I'm working on starting an online store. It was delayed some, but I should have it out in the near future.

There has been quite an interest in the PCAN (Purrfect Campers Area Network) control and monitoring system that I use in the Omnia van builds. Currently it is very customized for the Omnia, but I will be rolling out a universal version for DIY use soon and it will be featured here in the DIY Zone.

Be sure to subscribe so I can notify you of any updates. It's absolutely free. I promise to keep them to a maximum of 1 per week, but on average they will be once a month.

If there are any topics you would like for me to consider covering, please let me know in the ProBoards Forum.

Thanks, Tim
