    I,m going to use this motor and gearbox for my trailer jacks and to move my kitchen in and out the trailer , it is a small direct drive gearbox ratio 100:1 with a normal 12 volt gate motor mounted to it. You can even use it to build a motorized jockey wheel for your trailer or caravan for the lazy people like me

    Are you gonna make it movable for each application or will the one motor drive everything from one place? Would like to see how you manage this

    The plan for now is to use 4 motor gearbox combinations , two will operate the back jacks to level and stabalize the trailer , then one to move my whole kitchen area and work space out the back off the trailer and the last one to pitch up my add on room. In conjuction with that I would use a bunduTop tent and the Bundu awning. My aim is to build something that can pitch up and down in ten minutes max. The real work will start after easter weekend , to busy at work on weekends up to easter.
    The plan is to run the kitchen on remote gate tracks using the same drive gear , so with the push off a button the whole kitchen will move out the back exposing your table stove wash basin fridge with drawers on the sides for all the food and kitchen stuff.

    The plan is to be finished by September.

    Another Idee I,m playing around with is a Microwave to warm up food without mains power , I took a old 3000VA UPS ( true sinewave ) , 48 volt , four 7a/h battery,s.

    So I use 4 10 watt solar panels in series to charge the battery's , busy testing and so far working very well to warm up food say 3 times a day with a small 700 watt microwave and for charging cellphones and cameras

    This will HAVE to be in video form. He is in Addo and will probably be able to move the van with those little motors to his camp site in the park without a tow vehicle!
