Things you find when
Tue May 12, 2009 8:28 pm


Well for the last couple of days I have been redoing the water closet on the bus. I had tore out all the old filters and brass plumbing and what not. Well I finished today , doubled checked all my new pex fittings and unions hooked up the hose and let her go for a test. ........ Wow is was inpressed no leaks stood there for a min then took a walk around to the passanger side and Ouch water was running from behind the tag and out the bay door seems my winterizing wasn't as complete as I thought. Oh well just another project. LOL. have a great day

Ahhh... the joys of ownership, Andy! haha

I worked more on my ex-bus the last week getting it ready for the new owner than I ever got to the entire time it was mine! I could never seem to find the time before. I'm sure it is like owning a house. Even when there is nothing you HAVE to do there is plenty you WANT to do.

Andy, Your story reminded me of when I moved Dreamscape to it's new home right after I had hurried to do some work so we could live in it. I had installed the kitchen sink, drain and such. Thought I had tightened all the fittings, NOT! When I turned on the park water I heard this sound like when pressure escapes from something, yip, looked behind where I had hooked up the lines for the sink and there it was. I hurried out to turn it off and broke the bathroom sink cabinet door, Becky said I sounded like a sailor yelling out certain expletives! One thing I will do like you have done is to make a new water system with a manifold and water filter.

Welcome to the club, and I thought I was the only member! :lol:

Hey Andy,sorry bout your plumbing,but if I had a choice between cracked plumbing or swap out engines,I'd have to take swapping my engine out (no plumbing).If I don't get this buzzard to start flapping it's wings,I'll never get to that point ,to install my plumbing :lol:
By the way Andy hows the new sporty front end working out?As luck would have it,I was given a wide glide (stock length tubes)front end with billet trees,looks good hanging on the wall :roll: in the shop.I think I have enough parts to build one more :lol:

carry on troops
