Right on Steve!
We're going to have a lot of questions about stuff like the ceiling material etc.
Have a safe trip!

Most things were not working in the bus, I am working on getting things working / finding the switch to turn it on / or figuring out what the switch does.

I will start posting some pictures soon, I will probably have to work my way from back to front as I get things sorted.

I went to fill up the fresh water tank this weekend and it started flooding the bus under the bed, in the bathroom and in the kitchen. I have a real mess to deal with now.

Luckily it was designed that you can get an inch of water gathered in any compartment with plumbing before it will leak over into the carpeted areas.
