If its two wires, its ok to cut. If its four, it has an ignition lockout.

Thanks for your replies. I ended up just disconnecting the two wires for the buzzer and going over it with insulation; I was definitely over thinking it but i was aware some did have a kill switch in them. As far as the Margaritas, not my style but i would have to say without whiskey and vodka we would have far worse winters haha. I did all my travelling to the Caribbean already last year lol . Making Some progress though walls are coming along; bed frame is basically done, just waiting to put it together until I no longer need to use the back door as much. Got the wheel wells fully insulated and boxed in. I must say i wasn't sure about how effective it would all be since I do not have the ceiling covered (yet, I have a few ideas) but the insulation is making a huge difference even in weather colder than I plan on living in. The one little space heater brings the temp up fast even with the cab open. Working on planning out the rest before we get too far ahead of ourselves. Anyone know a good place to look for composting toilets?

Been working on my own counter tops. Much more affordable and much nicer looking than store bought. going for a wood look without the weight. (i'd say they weigh about 50lbs at most) I used Cedar planks for the top, and screwed/glued to a 3/4 inch plywood that I cut too a larger dimension than the glue-up and i screwed in one long piece at the top and two blocks on the other side and hammered in wedges and screwed 2x4's over the top to try to level it. sorry i didn't take many pictures of the glue-up that stuff dries fasttt, and by the time it was done and screwed in I was thinking bonfire lol. Then when it was all dry I cut it to size and sanded, and sanded and sanded untill it was even and smooth. god what I would have given for a Planing machine, tablesaw and some clamps haha i'm too cheap. Just have it placed in for now to avoid (more..) dents nicks from people not being SUPER careful around cedar. I know its a terrible countertop wood, but it will have about 7 layers of diamond finish to protect it like glass, and ill be using cutting boards and pot pads for food safety. I would love some maple end grain butcher block tops treated in mineral oil but my bus would start to pull to the left I think.
