I ran a reamer through the hinges and bronze(?) bushings to take a M8 bolt.

I installed the bulkhead fittings in the gray water tank. I drilled the hole for the fitting, tied a washer to a rope, dropped it through the hole into the tank, and out the 3" drain. Then I took the washer off, put the gasket and fitting on the rope, tied the washer back on, and pulled the fitting into place and put the nut on. I dropped the washer back out the 3" drain then, untied it, and pulled the rope out.



90* side drain for the shower:



Sink drain, and vent fittings. I put 3/4" oak furring strips on the tank to clear the nuts for the bulkhead fittings, and to get the tank in a better spot with the shower.



It's installed now, but it's so dark I can't get a picture. In the morning before work, I'm hoping I can get the hoses on, straps under the tank, and the 3" drain valve in. Right now it's nap time. I ended up not sleeping at all last night.

Sounds like you need to go camping just to catch up on your sleep.

The gray water tank is done! 36 (or 38, depending on what you want to believe) gallons, Ameri-Tank ht152.



1/8 x 2" aluminum straps with bicycle inner tube, and 8 #14 stainless screws.





30 #12 stainless screws in the flange.



Inside connections. The vent goes around the fresh water tank and out the floor at the back.

Switch panel just showed up, it's a thing of beauty.

Well, I found out I couldn't put a hatch in that's big enough for my big kayak, and my little ones fit in the door (barely), so there's no point putting a big hatch in the back.



I also realized I had no license plate light, or bracket…might be handy for inspection. So I played on the drill press a little.



That left the wires room if the light needs to be changed later. Scamp never put this filler strip in, they just left the gap back there, seemed like a good idea to me to have one, so I put it in with fiberglass resin. I also added a few screw from the outside to help hold it in.



Ready for fiberglassing.

In the pickup. I carry two spares, and use them for the camper and car trailer, so no point mounting it. It was screwing up the fiberglass, anyway. I'm also putting a rear receiver hitch on it later, and the tire would be in the way of a cargo rack.

I'm putting a '57 chevy pickup bumper on the back, I want it almost flush to the camper. the fiberglass is already pulled out where the tire had been mounted, no point waiting for it to rip out entirely.

She's cleaned up and ready to get inspected. In the morning I'll disconnect water/power/check lug nuts, tire pressure, hook up brake wires, etc., before work. Then it's up early tuesday to hit the DMV...fingers crossed.









There's still plenty of work to be done. I think I can have the water system done, and if things keep going as well as they have been, the propane is looking promising.

Very nice work, Jared- I read through the whole thread. You've done an incredible amount in just a few months, especially considering your work schedule. Would love to see it in person some day.

Keep up the amazing stuff you're doing, take some time to enjoy it, the electrical inspector can't have ALL the fun!

Us too. Hope everything goes well. I'm betting it will and the inspector will be IMPRESSED just like we all are

Wow Jared you have set a new bar level for non-commercial renovation as far as I am concerned. Would be hard to beat if anyone were keeping track. Between you and Ryan its been a pleasure to watch the last few months and I so appreciate the documentation.

Do you hire out? LMAO
