Weekend was a blast. At one point we had 8 people in the tub! Sorry I don't have any crazy pictures or the time lapse video I promised, they ended up not allowing us into the main tailgate area. Long story short, the head of parking said it was too much of a liability to let the hot tub party bus into the field where thousands of drunk college kids were partying. We got into a bit of an argument because he let a flat bed with a giant hammock on it in, apparently we have different views on what is safe. Maybe next year
We got put in a different lot where most of the families and alumni were. It was still fun and people still loved the bus. Some people even wanted to rent it out. Lapeer, you were spot on that driving around with people in the tub reduces spillage. I drove the bus about an hour from the college to a house party with two of our friends in the tub. One of them fell alseep the instant we left the college and woke up an hour away when we arrived, hows that for a hot tub time machine
I want to rewire the inverter and build a second tier of decking. The second tier of decking is going to go up and over the 55 gallon drums, completely hiding them (removable top to allow access) and providing a place for people to sit and just dip their feet in the tub. I am probably going to go with 000 gauge wire to be safe, ill check with the salespeople because electrical isn't my strong point. I'm hoping to do both before I take the bus to a company event this weekend.
Next project will be the plate heat exchanger. I wish I would have done it before I built the frame around the tub, now we have to work around the entire frame to plumb it in.
edit- yeah the pump and heater are both 110v
