We're back into the swing of things and striving hard to get the bus finished. It's been an epic effort underneath the bus (for the past few weeks... or months) to get the water tanks installed. With custom tanks beyond our budget, we opted for a string of smaller water tanks (59 litres each) and have installed two separate banks (4 x 59 litres for drinking and 5 x 59 litres for general purpose). Each bank has a separate filler, 24v pump and mains input (for when hooked up in caravan parks or showgrounds). We have managed to squeeze the tanks between the main chassis rails and the floor above that. The tanks are secured on a 'bed' of formply with ratchet straps to protect them from stone damage and prevent movement or rubbing against metal. It was a revolting job hooking up the hoses, especially the breather hoses on top of each tank, with very limited working space and a tight fitting for the tanks in the space above the chassis rails. But we got there in the end and now have water on tap in the bus! Yeehah! For keen observers and/or diehard supporters of the big beard, I regret to inform you that I chopped my beloved beard off a week or two ago. But never fear, a new beard growing project is already underway! Happy Sunday everyone!
