I'll try to post some pics of my new rig...and some pics of my bush man experience..lol
P.S I was telling the guys at work how I am so happy now that I have running water and my hot water tank is working in my new motorhome...lol
Hey does your scamper have the original hand pump system for the water tank? Larry told me u could pressure them up to 100 psi or something like that and go all weekend...I pressured mine up to 30 psi and my water cap blew off and I had a hell of time finding it in the field next to where I was camping...flew about 50 feet!
Larry also said those water tanks are glass lined.
That is very cool that he built his own motorhome based on the great Scamper floor plan. I'd love to see more of your pics!
LOL at the cap flying...Our hand pump is gone and an electric pump that runs off the deep cycle battery has been installed. It works well - we just camped with it for 2 nights/3 days down at the beach on the Bay of Fundy (a friend of ours is letting us park it on her property whenever we want - boondocking of course). Here are a few pics of our first camping trip with the old Scamper:
We love to fish striped bass off of this beach. You can see where our camper is parked just over the crest of the beach on the top right.
Everything worked perfectly in the camper. The fridge, stove, toilet and water worked flawless. I think there have been a lot of upgrades to this camper, like additional insulation, new interior lighting system (there is even a breaker panel installed), and the water pump. We haven't tried out the furnace or the hot water heater yet, although the lady we bought from said they still work but consume a lot of propane.
The only problem we had was the truck was hard to start when hot - like if it had been driving for an hour and it was shut off to get gas. The battery would drain almost dead trying to start it and the negative battery cable would get very hot. Let it cool off and it starts right up. My hubby is going to check the and clean the ground to the engine as it seems loose. If that doesn't work we'll take it to our mechanic.
