Re: New Project!

Was the waste water dumping station on the passenger side of the bus? If so, is that normal in your area? I thought most camping sites and regular RV dumping stations were oriented to the driver's side?

Just thought I'd ask before you got too far.

Re: New Project!

Hi everyone. It has been a long time since our last post. Lots of work has been done in that time. We finished both of the underbody bays, got an opening built for our air conditioner. We also finished our "garage" area. It is a separate space in the rear of the bus, and our bedroom will be on top of it. Also almost completed is the garage door, it just needs some gas springs to hold it open. We also got the chimney in for our wood stove, as well as some piping for our generator exhaust which will be exiting through the roof. Lastly we have completed our WVO filtration unit which will sit in the garage area. As well as planning out all of the necessary pieces for the WVO conversion, we just have to order them. Unfortunately this boards quota of pictures has been reached and we do not have a photobucket account, but you can see the pictures over at our blog. http://angieandalex.blogspot.ca

Re: New Project!

Here are the pictures linked from the blog website. On my computer only half of the image is showing up, so if anyone knows how to fix that let me know. I included a link directly to each picture if you can't see the whole thing.

I have a large computer sreen and when I made my browser larger I could see the full photo. You would have to save the photo as a smaller size, I use 800.
