I could use some advice - I just bought a converted Dodge Ram with a one piece fiberglass roof (similar to this guy http://www.fordcamperclassifieds.com...-in-eugene-or/
). Just drove it across during a thunderstorm which got me thinking about this van in lightning. Yes, I'm aware how low the risks are, but I'd still love to feel a bit safer about it since we'll be spending a lot of time in thunderstormy areas.
Has anyone tried building a lightning rod, maybe something that connects to the ladder at the back? Would love some advice on this! I assume the Faraday Cage effect wouldn't quite apply as our roof is not metal, only the sides are... Though maybe it still helps - any physicists/engineers here?
Otherwise, any other ideas of mitigating the risks a bit?
Thanks a lot in advance!
