Good Evening, Jay X2 . Well we went to Home Depot and picked up the lumber for the floor so we can insulate and lay the floor then start laying out the floor plan. Still have more stuff in the donor, trying to balance the time spent in both places.

Good Morning, Rail, I figured since it is being built on a truck it will not have a very forgiving suspension, so after the steel frame platform, top that with 3/4 tongue and groove plywood then frame that with full 2X4 16" on center insulate that with the 1.5" Polyiso insulation that has an R value of 9.0, THEN put another layer of 3/4" tongue and groove plywood, of course glue it as well as plated screws, that should be solid enough . We plan on putting the tanks inside compartments that I will insulate and heat.

Looks good Terry, That will take a lot of strain off the walls and keep the flex to a minimum.

Good Afternoon, Frank, that's what I'm hoping for . Well got the floor insulated, and two sheets of plywood down, (pic only shows one). Tomorrow I need to take MIL's buggy to the shop and get new sneakers installed, happens to be where the donor is parked so I will be working on that tomorrow.

Hey Popeye, I see your getting snow in Maine Gordon, it should be real nice for ether condition . Plus I'm going to insulate the compartments under the body and supply a heat duct for in there, I don't plan on putting the Tot'r away like the TH is, I'll winterize it as it needs it, but will be able to be used also if I want to.

Knowing that you will be using it more frequently in cool/cold weather means you can position water lines and low points to make it easy to winterize quickly.

Gordon, yes, I'll have to map out and keep it in mind as I put it together, especially the drains and maybe put in a small tank that I can fill with RV antifreeze that with a flip of a switch can be drawed out and put thru the lines

I am thinking more a gravity drain system. You should have short water lines and with the tanks underneath there would be a lot of vertical. About the only place for pink could be the pump and the traps.

On the 5er I use air and pink but only do it once a year. The coach is an unknown as I have not done it yet. Reading the manuals it seems to take a lot of pink and it is not an option for the Aqua Hot.

Good Morning, Gordon, If I figure things right, I could have the drains and a switch to turn on the water pump (to pump pink thru) all in the same spot in a compartment to make it easy to winterize, should be relatively easy. Tim, Thanks! Well off to the donor trailer and getting new sneakers for my MIL
