Camper Avionics Engine Monitor


A 1976 GMC camper is probably one ot the last things that you’d expect would ever leave the earth. That doesn’t mean it can’t be improved by an engine monitor originally intended for an airplane. The device measures exhaust gas temperature on each individual port, water temperature, engine rpm and speed. Alarms can be set for each input and the device gives vocal warnings when these levels are reached. There are a lot of other gadgets he’s added to his vehicle on the site (i.e. computers, tire pressure monitors, and cameras). So, have a look around.

I <3 you for it. Plus, try getting the show off your Tivo, and onto your computer. That’d be pretty cool wouldn’t it? Yeaaah. Just keep that in mind. You could win some prizes! In fact, it’s 2:30pm almost. Let me go¬† check my mail. Any envelopes that come today will get stickers!
