I bought an E-450 with a wheel chair lift and working on converting it to a motor home. I took most of the seats out and put a small 120v refrigerator in. I came across a new inductive range cheap (dented) and likely will use just the cook top, abandoning the oven for weight and space. I bought a futon for a bed and sitting space. Ordered a 30 AMP switch to switch from inverter to, "electric tree" power (commercial power).
Due to the wheel chair lift, the real reason for buying this bus, space is very tight.
I've been researching power centers and haven't settled on one because I would like get a 120v and 12v center that also has an integrated inverter to 120v. I am planning not to use propane gas and only use it in camping areas.
I'd like to put black and grey tanks underneath but haven't yet figured out where to put them and get some that fit.
Another challenge is the shower. I saw a fold down shower on the internet, and adding the handicap problem I'm mulling over if I can do that. Last in plumbing but not least a toilet.
I am trying to figure out what others have tried, adding compartments for multiple batteries. It may be crazy but I'd like to run an air conditioner for a few hours, maybe 4 to 6, using the batteries. Has anyone found a non-lead acid battery solution that doesn't cost a fortune?
It's a pretty long road ahead to get the whole thing converted.
Currently adding a hitch, the near term use is a step to get in the rear emergency door to fasten and remove the wheel chair safety straps. It's gonna be a long project, likely the first of two bus conversions.
