    Did you guys use their aux battery/ air compressor setup for under the system. I was interested in how you wired it if you did.

    I did and loved it. I messed with the wiring a little more after the pic taken to make sure it was clean and looked nice, then covered it with a cover. I used a 100a junction box and screwed it to the back of the cargo tray.

    We used the AAL wiring kit that plugs into the 12v and ran it to a self resetting 15a breaker. Used their battery box with a pc1100 battery. Going to the junction box I ran the compressor (2x30a), rear cargo light and the arb wiring kit for fridge. Used the next venture fuel door air line and drilled a hole while using a 1/4” grommet to run it thru

    Man. I love the work you do. I wish I wasn’t 9 hours away. I’m cruising later this year out of Galveston. Tempted to drop my JL off and let you do magic.

    Did you need to duct work and and or a fan for the compressor? I have mine up top and you can burn your hands on my air up/down interconnects.

    I haven’t used it for any extended periods and it has plenty of cool, clean air to pull from. If we do anything in the future, it’ll be adding some reinforced air line.

    if this is a real viable option I may consider it, I didn’t think it would work long term with out air vents in there due to heat. But I love the simplified cable routing vs the anaconda size wiring I have running back to front, I was thinking about adding a genesis kit for dual separate batteries in front, and keeping my wiring setup.

    I get it now, it’s not really sealed from air flow when you use their platform.

    I love how it turned out. We did the genesis dual battery too. The easiest way to explain it is the fridge and compressor run off the small battery in the AAL box (pc1100) but the aux battery in the genesis kit (group 25) trickle charges and maintains the small battery. You’re basically having a dual battery system for the fridge and and compressor. The main starting battery is isolated still.

    Here’s where we put the switch

    Looking at that I wish I had a better understanding of wiring. I have everything just not the knowledge to knock this out! I got it because I’m going to figure it out haha

    Man it’s not to bad. Use the isolated switch. We taped the others out of the way. I also cut down the harness because for our use it was way to long. Just take you time and you’ll get it together, pull the fuses until you’re absolutely ready to test it though!

    Did the Slipstream fit OK with the MASS Platform? That is the exact set up I want to run. I have the Platform and the drawers already but did not know if the Slipstream would interfere with platform especially directly behind the seats.

    Thag looks really clean. I like the red drawer face. Their price on the platform, all things considered, is actually really reasonable. It's the $600 drawer that's holding me back.
