Who is Ross Lukeman?
My electrical experience began with U.S. Embassy security systems in 2010, and then took a new direction in 2015 when I converted my first van and traveled around the U.S. for 2+ years, working for clients on vans such as Sprinter, ProMaster, and Transit. These days my focus is teaching the latest mobile power system technologies, and at this point I've worked with over 500 students from 5 continents on power systems for their vans, RV's, and trailers.
