Re: skoolie days

GB, that's how i am doing my living room A/C too, originally it was out the window and looked horrible. I finally got sick of looking at it and went out and purchased a hole saw.
Did you use a hole saw? the last one i tried to cut wandered like crazy! looks good!

thank you
and yes I used a 5 inch hole saw, it has a pilot drill bit so there's no wondering, just hang on to the drill its a big hole to saw out.
I also don't like the look of window a/c, but for the back of the bus I can live with it.

Re: skoolie days

well I got lots done on my up black tank up grade, I got the drains valves hooked up and made new mounting brackets, I don't have my welder here so I have to wait till t to tomorrow to finish them, but I did get the toilet back in and put a new flooring in as well
here is the top of the black tank looking down where toilet flange fits, drilled 3in hole

this is the 3inch threaded adaptor glued to the flange that gets glued to the tank. then screw the toilet flange to that, couple screws in the floor , bolt toilet

and here it is and it even works once again


now just have to get the tank mounts and finish the mounting

Re: skoolie days

ok here are some pictures
heres the bus where we boondocked at a rest stop along lake superior

another view of the bus

it was nice to wake up to this view

We have logged 21,000kms on our bus since we owned it, and it seems the road trips are getting better and better
I really want to encourage other skoolies to get out and use your bus, and enjoy the ride.
