Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

i also got the waste tank finished up today.

i still needed the vent line in before i could put the wall panels back up.

1/2" pex vent line was the easiest project i've done on the bus in a long time.



the tank is on the wrong side of the bus..... so it starts there, and runs between the frame and across the bottom of the bus.

then it comes up through the floor and out the wall.



and the vent fitting on the outside, driver side.



all one pipe, no fittings except the 2 ends

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

thank you!



i got the stove wired in today. i still have the vent system that goes through the floor, that's tomorrow maybe

here is a pic of the stove heating up on generator power! seems like it all works. many thanks to Redbear and his electrical wisdom.

the stove made it fine to 350 degrees, no sign of problems.....

the generator cycled a bit as it seems it was taxed pretty good. but it made it fine, no coughs, hiccups.... just power.

after it got up to temp, the load eased but the generator seems very capable.

i highly recommend that book.... as you can see from the cover.... marijuana gives you some crazy super powers and mad social skills. the cat book is also a real good read. hard to look at the number "2" now without changing it into a cat! ...... "5" too.

many thanks, not much skill, just a lot of luck and do overs. (mj helps with that too its good to live in Colorado)
the floor was pretty simple and cheap. it is vinyl planks with a sticky tab on one side. very easy install. "allure" brand flooring, about $150 for the floor material.

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

i picked up this battery monitor

but the 15' cable included is way to short, so its just wired temporarily to check the batteries.

but i've been going crazy trying to guess at the batteries..... happy now, to have some useful info

here is the main screen telling voltage and discharge rate



and this screen shows the percent charge and hours to discharge.
