Episode 22:

Building a portable entertain-

ment center

The bus is in a body shop as of this writing. (More on that in the next episode.) To use this time constructively, I’ve been working on a project not bolted down to the bus. In the last episode I put together a 2.1 stereo sound system permanently installed in the front of the bus. But there are times when you want to listen to music or watch a video while sitting at the dinette, preparing a meal at the kitchen counter or sitting outside. I happened to have an older 10” Android tablet with a tinny little internal speaker, and a decent sounding Bose speaker like this one. I mounted them on a board, along with the wiring to keep them both charged when the entertainment center is near a 12 volt outlet. (Both devices have internal batteries, and so can be used when no power source is available.) I look forward to using it on the bus when I resume construction inside it. In the meantime it’s proven to be useful on the patio at home, and at the cottage where I’m writing this.
