Here is a picture of the mini split condenser mounted on the rear.


Here's the evaporator mounted inside.


Got the bathroom walls up. The tub and toilet are installed as well.


Here's the shower/tub set up. We used a water trough from a farm and tack store. Going to make the curtain rod out of 1/2" rigid conduit.


And I love these clear lights up top with the LED bulbs! Almost like a flood light.

Yessir it seems to be pretty dang efficient. Iíve only been able to test the heat but it keeps it above 70 degrees when itís below freezing outside! Pretty darn comfy.

I actually had to change the fixtures out to turn signal fixtures so that I could use those lenses. The flashers were just a little bit smaller housing fixtures.

What lights are those in the rear, I have the same plan for back up lighting. How much area do they light up behind at night? Aren't all the round lenses the same size, why the need to change fixtures?

They're the weldon 1010 lens

You can buy the fixture and lens for cheaper than buying them separately ask me how I know... haha.

The round lights that were up there for the flashers were an H1 style bulb, think fog lights on older cars. Well apparently they thought the actual assembly should be about 1/4" smaller in diameter. The flashers also had a metal reflector in the lens. I just replaced the whole fixture instead of trying to modify the existing one, don't want to chance any water leaking through.

The output is pretty good, when I get the bus back from the shop next week I will get a picture of the light output. It's not like having those light bars you see on ATV's and 4x4 trucks but it's better than the standard reverse lights.

Had to get some suspension work and brakes done. I would do these myself but the investment of the proper tools and all that just wasn't worth it for me at this time. When we eventually get a house with a larger shop that I can fit the bus in I will invest in the tools to do it myself.

Thanks for that. I see the $5 diff. adds up to $20. I want a lot of back up light.

With the split up there it kinda looks like a rocket ship. Is that split a heat pump? Looks good keep up the good work.

Well I purchased all of the lights and fixtures for the front as well so $40 dollars. ;)

I would suggest some of those LED pod lights if you want to light it up like a UFO.

Don't know how you want to mount them, but try this.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Actually put one of these in place of my 3rd brake light on my suburban after changing the lens to tail light red. Needless to say you know when I brake.

I would just use the bulb and cover ring and ditch the housing. Should mount in the stock location with a gasket, they are water proof. don't want a light bar that looks afterthought.

That looks to be for just one light. Used these in my step van to replace the headlights. Don't know what kind of socket you're dealing with, but this should work for what you're doing, and it's a set. High and low beam. And if you get the ones that have the small top and bottom ones in yellow, you could tie them into your turn signals. https://www.amazon.com/Uni-light-Hea...eadlight&psc=1

No mention as to how they switch from fog to flood. I imagine a switch is involved? The stock light just has a gasket behind it and screws over a 2" hole in the body. These should mount the same way. That listing I posted is $30.99 for a pair. You go deep in the listing to see "pair"
