I do have a sun shade that I can attach and use as an "awning" - that works well.
maybe we have the wrong idea.. rather than making the busses resistant to the weather.. maybe we just meed to do what Sandi is already doing.. DRIVE our busses to the WEATHER WE WANT....

sandi is probably not concerned at all up in Maine about reflectix and bright sun while she drinks her coffee.. .

Well - I have moved into the bus. I am still parked at my house (I am closing Tuesday... so thought I would stay plugged in and use the internet while I can). It's pretty cozy.
2 questions -

Solar: Do I need to cover solar panels if they are not hooked up? Or are they okay as long as they aren't plugged into anything?

2. I have the urine diverter - but can't find a container small enough (narrow) to fit around the bucket? What are people using for that?

Thanks, in advance, for any information!!

Also - Living in a school bus is pretty cool.

Oh! Container... I got a skinny fridge water container, holds 2 gallons. Kind of like this one, but thinner, at Publix $6. Wish Iíd known you needed one. I wouldíve given it to you itís under the couch in my bus. Iím attached to a 15 gallon gray water tank under the bus.

Thanks WW for the picture of the skinny 2 gallon tank. We have one that we use in Elfie as the water supply . I dropped it and it cracked. Got that one at good will but now I know that you buy them at Publix after you mentioned that.
