so do you think i should have used the rubber propane tubing instead of the copper? i thought the copper would be more durable.
nope, I was talking about the tubing you used at your straps to protect the copper, you're doing great.

thanks Eyedeal, yes the tubing was a good idea. i was trying to figure out a way of protecting the copper, and my cousin mentioned using heavy duty hose. i had a bunch of this tubing here, it fits so i figured i would go with it.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I purchased a couple of tanks Grey and black they are 30 inches wide so they should fit fine between the bus skin and the frame under which is about 31 inches. The black tank was $125 and Grey was $135. i also bough an RV ladder for $40, but i don't have a photo of that yet. i don't know the gallon capacity of the tanks yet.

Black:









Grey:

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

picked up my tanks, ladder and a 3 way fridge today. the ladder will need some modification (bending?) i ended up getting the smaller Grey colored tank to use as a black tank as i think it will fit better. i was shocked at how my larger Grey tank fits in the bus frame. i need to find a way to secure it in this area as if i move the tank side to side i can get it to slide out, but it is almost a perfect fit. i will have to re route the exhaust as it is too close to the edge of the tank.

ladder just sitting on here so i can get an idea how to make it fit:




fridge:








small tank to be used as black tank sitting under where it will be mounted:


large tank to be used Grey tank sitting in area almost perfectly:









too close to exaust

More pieces, cool...I am waiting on above zero temps and no snow/slush so I can crawl around under mind for sewer hookup

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

looks good, it looks like your exhaust pipes might get in your way of the tanks, if it does, you can cut it and put a elbow on and run it behind the wheels I will be doing that to mine so I can put built in storage boxes.
keep up the good work, wish I could work on my bus to much snow and to cold

I reviewed your thread this morning. Awesome job your doing repurposing stuff. Nice score on the jack knife sofa!! Good luck with those tanks; should be an interesting job getting those in and plumbed.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

thanks Guys, im shocked at how well that main Grey tank fits in the center of the bus. i only really measured the width as i was concerned about it being to wide. but its damm near perfect fit even between the bus frame braces. i just need to take up the slack between the frame and tank and secure it from the top, and i have some ideas about that.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Great luck on the fit of the grey tank. I'd suggest a couple of 1/8" by 3/4" straps under the belly of the tank to help support the weight of the waste. While these tanks are very long lived, they are subject to splitting if they are not well supported. The straps should follow the contour of the tank and mount (with 1/4" bolts) to the flange of the frame--cheap insurance

Heck, I'll take a stab at the volume.
Grey water tank: 55.5"x30"x8" = 13320 cu. in. = 57.7 US gallons, but it's an irregular shape, so maybe cut back 10-15 gallons?
Black water tank: 30"x50.5"x6.5" = 9847.5 cu. in. = 42.6 US gallons. I'm not sure if the width and length measurements are including the lip around the tank, though. If those measurement are including the lip, then the volume is probably closer to 26"x46.5"x6.5" = 7858.5 cu. in. = 34 US gallons...
