Re: Introducing my first bus

Got some more done with the water system. Picked up a Bosch GL4 Ariston 4-Gallon Point-of-Use Indoor Electric Mini-Tank Water Heater and cut the hole for the grey water tank. Was concerned the dump valve would stick out too far but doesn't look to bad. Still have to finish the water lines and sink plumbing but have all the parts I need for it. More pictures on my blog

Re: Introducing my first bus

Got myself a brand new 70" jack-knife sofa for $200 from a guy that pulled it out of a 2011 TT. Got to love those craigslist deals

Re: Introducing my first bus

Think I have mostly finished the water system in my bus, next will be the power system. Also completed base for jack-knife sofa. More pics on my blog.

Do you mean the Air Admittance Valve (http://www.ipscorp.com/studor/minivent)? It allows me to have a vent for my grey water without running a vent pipe through the roof.

Also called a "Cheader" (correct) or "Cheater" (incorrect but what folks think they hear) valve. Handy little suckers if you aren't going thru the roof. Often used in kitchens in conjunction with a Dishwasher and placed thru the countertop. Many older homes don't have a wet vent in the plumbing close to the kitchen sink so when someone adds a dishwasher to the setup, it doesn't drain properly. This is a way to "cheat" and get around installing the needed wet vent.

Have not tested it yet but have high hopes it will work for my small system.
