Priming...

And working on the Shower Install... 32" x 36" should be nice.

how many miles have you traveled since toilet install?
How is it working with the "factory" trap...any trouble keeping water in it so no smells?

Re: New Skoolie here... 1995 Thomas 12row rear Engine

I am plumbing my water in this week... I've got it hooked up but no water - so unfortunately I can't address this however I will say that the Toilet that I have has an very bold curve up and around before going out. So it was my thought that It would do well traveling. Also it's a one piece toilet so no seals to worry about.

Great... found a photo... look at this.

The bus looks great. How well do you feel the spray foam is working? Have you done the roof yet?

Re: New Skoolie here... 1995 Thomas 12row rear Engine

The foam was $500 and I really thought I blew the money!!!! NO WAY! On humid mornings I could walk outside and literally see condensation gathering where the 2x's were for framing the walls! Probably the best money I've invested. It is twice the highest R value and a complete sound barrier... good call now that hind sight is 20/20

I would give anything if I would have done the Roof... I was having major burnout with my schedule at the time and decided to pass. THAT... I regret. I did put the Ceramic coating on the roof and that has helped I would say 99.9%... it's been an adventure just fighting the elements and space constraints. I constantly visualize and consider things before I grab any tools. Things may change in my head a dozen times before I act on something. So so far - so good. I've Gotta get running water though... temps are dropping as of today! And outdoor showers have lost their romance.

Winter has provided plenty of opportunity to become a window insulation expert...

Great work so far... I really wish I had considered the spray foam thing... I used rigid foam board in the walls and wish I to did something with the ceiling...
