The links were ones I "was" looking at and in response to someone's question on certain sizes of cooktops.

I ended up going with these Hamilton Beach units because of the reviews, the way the buttons work and the sleek look. Also, when I ordered one to test them I loved it and was very impressed... So I ordered another and went with them for the build.

Btw.
Another trip I just did. 10mpg going south to CA from Nevada and 9.5mpg going north about 70mph the whole way.

Someone asked about the engine monitoring in private - it's the VMSpc by Silverleafelectronics.com

I was a Wing Nut with a platoon of Jar Heads in the Gulf War. Learned quite a bit from the Gunny. LOVE the Corps! Many good friends are from there as well.

Seems as there was a lot of question as to induction cooktop near metal... There is no issue - works perfect. The induction field is literally within Centimeters from the hotspot of a cooktop. In other words a pan touching the surface. When you lift a pan off, it knows there is no metal near and beeps at you. It does not operate if no metal is not on its surface either. Here is boiling water.

Remember if anyone else does a drawer idea - I have a hole under the unit where a fan is and there is no rear to the drawer so the air can flow to / from the unit. Just FYI - don't forget about airflow

Is this a vanhool T840?
Do you have a Cummins M11

What are you doing for heat? Does your chiller/heat exchanger work both ways?

Do you mind sharing the amount your conversion will cost?

How are you getting larger items into the Bus

Thanks

I can see why you don't think solar is adequate. Very elaborate build. I'd second the request for a full interior picture.
