Bucket liners! I think you can buy them in the grocery stores, etc. They are often called "trash can liners" or "trash bags". They would have to charge more if they called them "humanure collection device liners".

Think I'm kidding...

A "factory made" toilet is $225
10 pk/ 13 gallon liners are $4.69

Free unsolicited advice

When attaching wood to wood use carpenter's glue (the yellow one) because it penetrates into the fibers and makes a stronger joint. This does not happen with Liquid Nails.

Thanks for the advice. What about Gorilla Glue? I used that on the bed frame and liked how instantly it seemed to adhere (which is also what I like about the liquid nails). Don't know about longevity, though. As a precaution, any glued surface should probably also be screwed to ensure it won't come apart.

Re: 2012... The Year of Renewal

I've used Gorilla Glue on several wood projects. I've also dismantled a few of the projects. The wood breaks before the glue joint fails. IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS (dampen wood, apply, put together, pull apart for a few seconds, then put back together again, let dry). Down side to Gorilla Glue is that it makes a nasty mess that you can't hardly get off your hands (I wear nitrile gloves when I mess with the stuff now). It's also good if gluing up exterior projects. for interior uses... we prefer to use the yellow "wood" glue. We have also used a lot of liquid nails and PL brand adhesives (PL has an adhesive --- 500 or 600 -- that is rated the same as Sikaflex.... I don't remember the ASTI test #.... if interested, look it up in the data sheets). PERSONALLY I like PL adhesives... David likes LQ. LQ gives me a headache at times. LQ will EAT the foam house sheathing unless you get the stuff that specifically says it's for foam board. I believe most of the PL will as well.

Re: 2012... The Year of Renewal

I have not used the Gorilla just because of all the steps. Laziness won, I guess.
If you can glue+screw or glue +wood dowel is a lot better than just glue.
BTW carpenter's glue (or yellow glue) is available in interior or exterior flavors. I use the exterior everywhere.
Liquid nails is great for different non-porous materials.

Gorilla Glue...

Pros: Strongest type (Urethane)
100% Water Proof (Approved for "below waterline use" on boats)
Expanding (fills voids)
Works well on dissimilar materials)

Cons: Stains skin black & doesn't come off until new skin replaces it (Always wear gloves)
Expanding (Joints must be clamped or screwed together until cured)

Re: 2012... The Year of Renewal

Well, I went ahead and bought some flooring this morning before work. It was the Allure Ultra Vintage Oak Cinnamon from Home Depot. Hopefully it will be available for pickup when I get off.

It was more than I wanted to spend on flooring, but I guess durability in a school bus out trumps my cheap tendencies. I KNOW water will get inside. I also know those laminate products that look so good on the showroom floor can be warped beyond saving if water gets between the boards and expands the particle board. <sigh> I'd rather just spend the money now than have to spend both money and effort trying to tear something out and replace it later.

I'm also hoping the Triton HWOD is here by the time I get home. Received an email yesterday saying it was shipped and today was the estimated delivery date. I'm excited about getting both products and making up for lost time this weekend (helped Mom sand her floors so they could be refinished).


Anyone ever use either of these products in their bus already? If you do, do you like them?

If it is a "tankless/instant" type water heater, be sure it is rated/vented for interior use. Several are available and work great, but are for "outdoor use only" or absolutely must be properly vented to avoid annoying stuff like dying.
