Re: skoolie days

Where did you get your awning? I'm hoping to find one minimum that size.

Re: skoolie days

well the weather been getting a better, and I have been doing some work on the bus, looks like I'm going to need some steer tires, and maybe injectors, Going to put the new flooring in and a few other things. got a 3 week trip planned this summer, and lots of other trips planned, will post pics of some improvements. but plan on more trips and less working.

Re: skoolie days

well today I started to replace my black water holding tank, it cracked at the 3 inch discharge outlet , it was a 23 gal tank, and I'm replacing it with a 39 gal tank, this time I will use a rubber fernco to connect the 3inch pipe to the drain valve, I'm sure the road vibration caused the tank to crack.
Have to get the bus ready for the up and coming road trip.
new and old tank

this is where the toilet is, its hard to see but the tank is right below, straight drop into the tank

Re: skoolie days

heres a picture of the old tank where its broken


pain in the butt, to replace, I'm sure the road vibration caused this, but on the plus side a bigger tank will be nice

Re: skoolie days

I was asked to show some pictures of my aircondtioners
front one is a 9000 btu portable type, I have 2x3 lumber screwed around the base to keep from moving, and a metal strap around it as well, on the back I got a furnace take off duct boot square on one end mounts to the exhaust , and then goes to 5 inch round out the side of the bus, works good,
front of a/c

exhaust hook up

this is the vent out the side, I don't have the screen on it


the rear a/c is just a reg 5000btu window model just cut hole and installed no biggy, and works great
