Re: Wildcat Lodge

Man, really impressive! By the way, in answer to your question about electrical boxes, I am using regular household boxes and switches from the big box stores.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We worked on the plumbing this afternoon. First we ran all the grey water lines. Both kitchen and bathroom sink will drain together and the shower will meet up under the bus into the holding tank. Here you can see the kitchen drain line going back and under the bunk bed. It meets up with the bathroom drain line in the next photo which is also tied into the vent for the tanks. We used PVC for the drain lines and the flex tubing for the hot and cold supply. The water tank and pump are located under the front bench seat and the hot water heater is located under the kitchen sink cabinet.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

next set of pics. We taped up the corners of the shower rough in with the same metal tape we used to cover the holes in the metal floor. Then we spread the liquid nails for fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) over the entire surface so the panels stick solid.

Actually before we applied the adhesive, we cut the panels to fit. We used cardboard as a template and used metal shears to cut to fit. We picked up the panels from Lowes and they come in 4'x8' sheets.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here's the shower stall finished and drying. We used these scraps to hold the panels in place while the adhesive dried. Tomorrow we plan to put in the shower fixture and then attach the bathroom fixtures. We used the supplied J-molding for the corners and will caulk all of the seams when it dries.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

You mean those bent sticks won't be in the finished rig? I can see they may make shower access a bit awkward!

On a serious note: doors or curtain?

Our plan is to go for a door which will give us more light while showering, however we have to find a 32" wide model which won't break the bank, so off the salvage/habitat stores to look for a bargain. If not (or in the mean time) we may just do a rod and curtain.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We have a dark bathroom in our house, and used a clear shower curtain to allow light in. It is thick plastic and has metal reinforcement grommets and has worked great. That would probably work well in your bus so long as you don't need privacy.
