Almost ready to start installing the ceiling:) Today I checked the lengths and locations for all of the ceiling lights and wiring. It all works (three way switch and also a dimmer.) Also happy to report that the main PEX water lines are installed and today they got pressure tested - the system passed. No leakage anywhere in the main system lines. Of course plumbing isn't finished yet as there's all of the cabinets, wall, and plumbing fixtures to go in. But it was definitely best to test the main lines before things get closed off inside walls and cabinets. The other thing we were a bit worried about was the amount of light that was being produced. When I only had two of the LED lamps in to check that stage of the wiring, it didn't seem like a whole lot of light. Today with all of the ceiling lights (temporarily) wired in the lighting was fine.
The other day I picked up the fresh water tank (39 US gallons) and installed a piece of base plywood as the metal bracket that is holding the floor system to the main van D-ring bolt holes was in the way by 3/16". Thank goodness I was able to use a piece of the $200 shipping box the fridge came in as the base piece (LOL!) Something that I decided I'm going to change is the vent system for the grey and black tanks. While they will still share a common vent out the roof of Redford, I decided that I want to have the join between the grey and black vents much higher up. My original plan was to join the two systems under the floor but I was always a bit concerned that in a "disaster", i.e., an over full tank or some serious splashing due to driving motion, could cause some of the black tank sewage to get into the vent and sit at a low point. Now that I know how the fridge is being installed, I can run a separate 1/2" or 3/4" line to vent the grey tank and have it join the vent to the outside near the ceiling.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
