After plumbing the toilet drain into the waste tank, we were ready to secure the tanks and then plumb the sewer drain. We will follow up later about how we are securing the tanks (we haven’t finished securing the fresh water tank yet), so for now, we will move

We knew pretty early on that we were going to need to replace the rooftop a/c for a few reasons. First, it simply didn’t cool the bus down very well. It was a 13,500 BTU Coleman Mach unit. It blew cold, but it just didn’t push
