Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Started the cutout for the exterior furnace door. I ran into a bit of a problem with the ribbed exterior skin. So I am going to have to straighten the raised areas so the door will sit flush (hopefully) to the exterior skin.

The distribution panel is not a surface mount, so I had to build a frame for it so it sits flush in the frame. The 2x4's worked great! I still need to mount it to the wall.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Is that some sort of funky mini-oven cooktop or just a weird angle on the photo?

Thats a SMEV Italian oven/cooktop from Aery corp on ebay. It has a smooth glass top that opens to expose the burners underneath.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Well, its time to start thinking about mounting the LP tanks and get some lines run. This is a picture of the LP setup I am going to use.

These came off my concession trailer. I don't need them because I run all electric. So I think they should be perfect for the SKOOLIE!

I believe it is a typical RV type setup. It has the valve, and complete assembly. I think all I need to do is make a frame, platform and hang them under the bus.

What do you think?

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

I have been thinking about this stage of the conversion as well. I need to be able to mount a couple 20lb tanks under my bus as backups and also so I can pull one out and run my generator further away from the bus. I have found that a 20lb tank is taller than the space I have under my bus. I see you have 30lb tanks which may make the issue even harder. Does anyone with propane experience know if you can store a tank on its side? I seem to think you shouldn't due to the way the pressure relief valve is set up, but I am not a 'Hank Hill' so I am not an expert on propane and propane accessories.

Hey man,

What are the details on that stove? Looks sweet. It's glass top propane?

Source, price, model?
