Seems a little more rigid and the roof leaks on every old one I was ever in.
The existing roof plywood was rotten.

No more.

Winter's damn near over.















Rough as a cob, been watching Yukon men at my buddy Tom's house and making maple syrup.

Melted toilet?

Looks like it's going to be a warm place to sit on a cold morning!

It can be used for ice fishing if you ever drive out onto a lake, too.

Cutting holes.

Did you cut one under the gas stove? My stove stand (ex sewing machine cabinet) got kind of crispy overnight when I forgot to turn off the oven. As in crispy black...!

Then I cut a hole....

It's open underneath, just a frame but thanks for the tip.

The plumbing plan is complete and has no pipes.

Dishes are washed in the sink and rinsed using the shower bag hanging above the sink.

Water from the sink drains into a bucket under the sink to be saved for use in the toilet after defecation. Tank under toilet bowl is liquified for direct drop into grey water tank under the tank.

The entire system runs on gravity.

Sorry about the hack job...but it was funny.

Anywahy, I had to do a lot of work on an old RV and was unpleasantly surprised by the way plastic fittings were held with non-replaceable clamps. Everytime we had to do something, we used hardware store fittings, and now it's all serviceable instead of fragile.
That said, Gravity is a good solution to your solutions.

Just a point of reference - as a few folks know I have been working in the wilderness of the Texas oil and gas patch with a soon-to-be-retired Southwind POS motorhome.

Long story short is that I have had a range of water system issues.

One thing that I have discovered is that c-clamps can work well to patch and bypass things but some supplier sold a bunch of really cheap c-clamps to all the stores out here and they strip the threads way too easily.

Just a point of reference. Carry on ;)

Snow's going fast, making maple syrup in an open pan.
170 taps.

Time just disappears in the steam.

Hoping for an open road test in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks to all for the suggestions.
