Re: First Post

Well I had a good stay in the bus last night. It was a little cold.
It is suppose to be in the thirties tonight. Lots of wind today, 40 mph gusts.

I installed my toilet today. I couldn't install a water tank or pipes because It is just too windy.
Here are some pics.

The 22 gallon tank with wheels.

The pipe

And the commode

Eventually I will make a more mobile setup.

Tomorrow propane and water.

Re: First Post

If you had an RV toilet you would be putting a lot less water in that sewage tote.

Re: First Post

The toilet is a Pro Flo low flow toilet. It uses 1.1 gallons per flush or less.
Or less meaning it has a half flush feature to save water.
I also prefer the standard sized elongated bowl. Also I hope my guests will enjoy it.

To be quite honest I always felt weird schitzen in a r.v. toilet.
Thank you for your thoughts, I am still learning.

Hello everyone. So far I have been enjoying my stay in the lifestar. Over the last week there has been strong winds, and heavy rain. I have found that the bus doesn't leak a drop.

I have finally installed my stove. I cooked some grilled cheese sandwiches.
They turned out great. Here are some pictures.

Grilled Cheese sandwiches and tomato soup makes for a yum yum eating experience.

Re: First Post

I will have to try that. I have never heard of tomato soup with a grilled cheese.
Now I do occasionally put a few pickles in my grilled cheese. It gives it a nice kick.

I bought a used mini fridge to keep the food cold. I may have to reconsider as it seems to use a lot of power.

The middle of cooking breakfast.


Slim pickins round these parts.

Also I am having spider problems. It seems they hang out above the stove and they like it above my bed. They seem to come out when I'm playing guitar.
I think they like the vibrations.

They are small spiders.
Some of the breeds look new to me. It is kind of spooky.
I don't want to poison the bus. Does anyone know of another way to take care of this situation?

Re: First Post

The problem is the spiders bug me. I thought of the natural pest control.
I was thinking of releasing a few geckos to take care of the problem, but then I'm left with geckos everywhere.

Re: First Post

The stove runs on propane. The refrigerator is electric. I have the bus hooked up to shore power.
I use a stove burner to heat the living area, and a small electric heater in the bedroom. I need to be thinking of a/c. It is already 90 degrees.

And no leaks. It has rained twice since I have moved in, and I haven't seen a leak.
