Henry's Tropicool 887
, $70/gal, is an excellent long-term water proofer. The white is highly reflective but Physics has found silver to be more reflective of heat. i used Henry's Tropicool 885
Seam Seal around the roof hatches and on roof seams.
before the finish coat i sanded the peeling clear-coat on the hood and primed with Zinster BIN from home depot.
i painted the roof with Hunter Green Rustolem with ceramic micro balls i added for insulation. i used a roller on the roof, then rolled what i could on the rest, and finished with a 3" brush. i used two coats of matching spray on the blk side strips and wheel nuts.
It looks good for a tank, not a car. [but i did paint a metro with roller and Rustoleum
Rustolem oil base, $25/gal, stays shiny for yrs with no waxing.
depends on the user. we cant have too many outlets.
my residence-bus has a lot of electrical for convenience and adaptation. Who knows future needs? and it is very hard to add wiring
We can run any 110A device off grid in moderation: saws, welder, airconditioner, refrigerator etc. When designing our system we considered day vs night and Summer vs Winter. Cooling on Summer days is the hog.
Currently the bus has
400Wsolar, 600Ah in 12v batteries, 3000W inverter, 30A 110V and 16 circuit breakers,
ten 12v fuses, nine LED area lights, six LED motion sensors, two LED spotlights, USB ports, four 12v receptacles, thirteen 110V receptacles [two outside] and five power strips with six plugins each.
It is great to never need an extension cord.
All 300ft [est.] of wiring is proper stranded
[automotive] wire installed by 2 electricians. NO ROMEX HOUSE WIRING
which can not take vibration and flexing.
