that would be an amazing amount of headroom. i don't like the idea of a pump for the shower water though.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I'm not a big fan of the lift pump either but since there was only 5'6" of head room in the old bus, it seemed the only option. I used a 6 gal grey tank with a submerged pump. The pump has a filter at its intake so until that plugs up I'll be OK. With the little tank, even when the thing does plug up, removal and cleaning won't be a big deal--and it beats being a dirty bird.

Status Report:
i ran the wiring with power for the range hood light, fan, and sensors to the switch panel to an unused switch that was used for flashers. range hood works great. I also worked on the rest of the kitchen cabinets and made some progress:











its not pretty,or complete yet, but it is sturdy

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Great job on the cabinetry, question in my bluebird the windows are 30" off the floor, are they higher in a Wayne, I am about 6 foot and I have seen cabinets installed at the bottom and about 6" up so they are in the middle of the first pain, not a criticism just a question as cabinets are 36" high. I mean the bottom cabinets not the top I am tired from a full day of working on my bus.
