Re: the wait is over

I finally got most of my plumbing finished up. I have a working toilet and shower. The one vavle not hooked to anything, is for future water tanks on the roof. Not going to happen this year though.



City water input on the outside of the bus.


Dump valve installed on my carwash black tank.


Black tank finished

Re: the wait is over

I made a reciever carrier couple years ago to haul my snowblower on the back of my pickup. Works good on the back of the bus to haul the generator. My plans are to eventually mount generator under the bus, but I really want to use the bus now. So that will wait. I did however make a kennal for the generator so it doesn't run away on me.

Before


Now

Re: the wait is over

That makes sense. Now all you need is a gernade with a trip wire----but I digress. Your holding tank installation looks good and as it is close to the axle you won't have to worry about high centering.

Re: the wait is over

I envy your welding skills. Your generator kennel looks great...i'm sure it won't be able to run away

Re: the wait is over

Make sure you weld some tabs next to the ends of your hinges so that thieves don't tap the hinge pins out. Also weld the hinges to the kennel frame. At the hitch receiver, use a locking hitch pin.

Re: the wait is over

Check, check, and check

Bolt/hinge pin welded in one bushing


Tab to keep kennel from sliding out the hinge pins when closed


Mounted on bus. I have a locking hitch pin too.


Thanks for the comments guys! Sometimes its easy to over look things and is nice to catch them early.

Re: the wait is over

How about a couple of reflectors at tail light height on the cage? Just a thought.

Re: the wait is over

WOW nice.
Question?
One your black tank of doom; the "let her rip" valve sticking out yelling "knock me off?
Have you thought about "protection around it in case your wheel goes to pieces or kicks up something and nails it?
Kinda be a major eeewwwww if that happened.
