I'll have that system going later this fall. Right now it's too hot to work on the electrical system during my mid-day breaks. I'll post my progress on my thread (hopefully in time to help you with your bus) as conditions allow.
Thats a cool idea. So you have the hoses running under the bus? I am very interested to see how that all shapes up.
It actually gave me an idea that I quickly sketched up here:
It does not solve the heater hose cost, but it does allow me to maintain access to the hoses in case they need repaired/replaced. The hoses will basically run along the metal floor in the center of the bus. I will then build the sub floor around it, with a removable board to allow access the heater hose compartment in the middle of the bus.
Maybe I am being over paranoid about the heater hose failing on me, but I can see that being a mess if its impossible to get to.
