Re: skoolie days

Here are some pictures of my holding tank vents, I was asked for some pictures and I figured I would just put then on our thread
this is the black tank vent its pex pipe with a screen on the end

this is the pex pipe coming out of the black tank, theres a 1 1/2 adaptor to pex fitting then it tees off up the floor then out the side its a bit hard to see it cause of the low light

this is the extra vent off the black tank tee, it has a shut off valve on it, but I don't seem to need when dumping

and this is the vent off the grey tank, simple set up seems to work great, so far no smells, and if it did I could just add it to the black vent, but I don't think I have to

so far I have had no problems with this set up its been 3 years, and well used, its all pex line and shark bit, easy to install , and no roof holes.

Re: skoolie days

Got the front curtains done to cover the windshield and upper windows of the door looks good one pc hold it up with magnets, I already winterized the bus cause I know we wont be going anywhere for the rest of the year, do to family stuff going on we didn't get much time in this year, but will be working on things over the winter, which includes more out side storage boxes behind the rear wheels and other things over the winter.

this works great they are black out type keeps the sun out.

Re: skoolie days

I like the car, but poor little thing. The front end of that car is going to hate you.

Some one on here need to build a simple wheel lift like they use on tow trucks. It would fold under the bus when not in use, but would carry the front of the car, taking all the wear off the front suspension, and carry it high enough to keep the rocks from the rear wheels of the bus from destroying the front of the car.

Like this

Re: skoolie days

your right about the front of the car, I think Ill look into those stone deflectors that mount on the tow bar.
I like the ideal of using a wheel lift, that would really work and the frame on a bus would handle it no problem good thinking.

Re: skoolie days

Saw this last summer,





Looks like a lot of weight way out there in back.
Not much detail, I wasn't really taking pictures of the lift.
