How's that RV500 working, are you happy with it? I just ran my propane lines last week and will be installing ours this week. Any installation tips that weren't in the instruction sheet?

Re: Good News Bus Conversion Project

The link should be working now.

Let me know if it still does not. Make sure and refresh your page.

I am almost ready to test the RV-500.

It is a Flo-Jet pump and a Surflo accumulator. I have not installed a filter yet. I may just filter all the water that comes in.

Re: Good News Bus Conversion Project

What model Flojet is that? I tried looking for it on their site, but none of the pictures matched.

FloJet Pump Model 03526144. I do know that it pumps 2.9 GPM.

he triplex diaphragm series features models that deliver 2.9 gpm (11 lpm) flow and up to 50 psi (3.4 bar) of pressure. Pumps are self-priming and can safely run dry if necessary. Soft noise absorbing mounts reduce annoying background noise while running. Utilizes 1/2" (13mm) snap-in port fittings and the built-in pulsation eliminator reduces frequent pressure surges. Flojet offers a complete line of switch and VSD water pressure system pumps ranging from 1.1 to 6 gpm (4 to 23 lpm) models.

Re: Good News Bus Conversion Project

The whole bottom of the bunk is storage.

Here is a pic I took when I built it. I may end up putting some dividers in or something.
