Use solid pipe for the first 2' then it is acceptable to use a flexible hose to the ceiling. This is standard in the RV industry and works very well, and is much easier to get to the ceiling. -Richard

I preferred to vent my combined black/grey tank right out the top, then terminate under the bus skirt.
One reason I won't vent through the roof, is that I don't want the shower flooded with waste in the event the tank overflows.

well, my trap vent doesn't work well. I filled it with water and the sink drains slow, almost not at all. The reason it worked well the first weekend I used it is because I forgot to put water in the trap and the tank was brand new, so no smell. Oh well, time to try something else!

I much prefer the yahoo groups where searching for stuff is next to impossible, the moderator is some sort of bi-polar cajun who loves to sensor information and ban members who dare to disagree with him. I also love the fact that the site is inundated with pop-ups and enough advertising to make your eyes bug out of your head. Other than that, the yahoo school bus conversion group is great! Seriously though, there is a lot of good information posted by the members of hte yahoo school bus conversion site, but with all the negatives on the site, it can't hold a candle to Skoolie.net
Don't even have to disagree with anyone over there. I simply stopped visiting there, and was coming here instead...got booted anyway! Way too arrogant for me over there!

I do agree, this is a much better format, the people that run it are actually friendly, and no broken search feature! Best of all no more 'Flash' pop-up's every time I change the page!

For a group that claims to be the original skoolie group why is it they can't even get a real web site instead of using the yahoo servers?
One thing I didn't like right away when I was searching for school bus conversion info was the fact that you had to join them before you can have access to the message boards and pictures. Needless to say I kept on going and found a better site. This one right here.

Very strange site. If you ask a question there, the moderator gets very arrogant and insists you should 'search the archives' with their broken seach engine. Worst search engine on the planet, I think it lets you sift through ten or twenty posts, then you have to seach some more. You could be there all day just trying to navigate through their archives. You're better off here, you ask a question and someone will answer it instead of getting arrogant and telling you to go look up your own answer. Not a very helpful place from what I could see....

This all kind of sounds like my opinion of Pirate4x4.com versus toyotaoffroad.com.........

Pirate=get out your flame suit

TOR=get GOOD answers within an hour in most cases

I think that's something I've really come to appreciate about this site. I have never seen anyone get flamed (other than trolls). I've seen some strong suggestions against doing something a certain way, but it is usually accompanied by and explanation and alternative idea. Long story short, props to the members of this site.
