Going to have breakfast next, then fix the wire on the control module for the low voltage disconnect. Remove the thin wire and conduit running back to the truck cap. Run new thicker line to cap.  Hook up lights to new switches. Buy new marine battery at Walmart. Test things. Get camping gear out. Get it checked out and start getting things ready to go.
