Been crazy. Ordered tank fittings on Amazon. They arrive within days. My dad cut the tile that has the drain. My friend and I installed all the wall tiles tonight. Just got done. Was a chore. Also installed a weather proof plug outlet in the fuel side panel. It's arc arrested...don't worry.

"It is arc arrested". An electrician was telling me that the Canadian building code requires every circuit in a new house to have arc fault interrupters since January 2016. He says it is a nightmare. Lots of service calls resetting breakers. You look at them sideways and they trip. Home owners remove them after the inspection... Will be interesting how you like yours...

You are under the gun to get this bus ready, and you have worked hard and long, but there is still something that quite possibly needs attention at some point - your emergency escape exits! It looks like there are only two windows in the entire bus, which may open or not, and maybe a roof exit or two. It really seems to me that you need more in the way of exits on both sides of the bus and on the roof. With all of that softwood inside you have a lot of fuel for a fire, and accidents do occur while on the road that have resulted with coaches laying on their side. Please consider every type of disaster that can happen and what you and your family would do to get out. The people in the back should be able to get out as well the ones in the front, and don't shoot the messenger, he wishes you well.

Lol. The arc arrestor might hate me but being that plug is so close to the diesel fill, I felt it necessary. Walter coach does have roof exit in rear and two emergency windows in front. Two windows going in the rear as soon as we can. Thanks bob. We loved the old barnwood tile so in it went.

Scott - looking great! Just wondering about the shower wall, is that thin set you are using? If so do you think it is flexible enough? I am thinking of tiling as well but probably going to use SilkaFlex to mount the tile.

We have luggage bay lights! Commercial grade long led rods. Came out of Kroger coolers. Run on 24 volt but we have them wired with drivers to 120.
