Wow lots of frank o'pinions. haha

Here is another... Plan for a third unit with power and drain tube. Then wait and see. Seems to me if it was real hot I might start my thermoking
and cool it off then let the regular roof air take over...
You have nothing to worry about when underway.;)

Thanks for all the great input everyone; I definitely read and consider everything that everyone says..... Keep your experiences and knowledge coming as I build this thing.

Maybe a stupid question/comment, but isn't the ThermoKing in this application designed to only run when the main engine is run and not when parked and engine off?

Christian 10-08-2010 07:06 PM

Yep he said it was. I meant...If it was real toasty I'd start er up and put some chill in the air then let the regular units take over w/shore power.:D

Got some more freebe's that I may be able to use in my project.

125Gal Fresh water tank that will fit in that half bay in front of the fuel tank, and 2X 60 gal wast tanks that will fit in a regular bay side by side as it sits. ;)

I also got this extra 100Gal Flat fresh water tank.... I am considering putting this under the bed in the back bedroom. Extra water can come in handy in some situations. If not, I'll mount it under the floor of our travel trailer that we use to carry the bikes to the races.

Now I need to order my Shurflo Extreme 5.7 pump, filter and a bunch of water lines...if anyone has any of this stuff let me know now before I order it.

rwoody 10-12-2010 09:15 PM

well you dont need that big a pump ......

and the lines pecx are avil in differant colors nned to get a tool~~~ for it.......

and i want to find your PIKER PILE with all this free stuff-------you got it going your way

rwoody 10-12-2010 09:18 PM

imo and just mine-----

i would do 4 ac with heat and that 12.5 gen set

then you can do some radiant heat under the floor and call it done--but you do live up north but still that water rad and all that stuff is a mess

get some of the suburban heaters and then you will be done for sure--you got 2 x the propane tank we got

Cant get more than 2 AC's up there because of the Thermo King.... just no room left. I really dont want that 12.5K tractor... too noisy and heavy.

rwoody 10-12-2010 09:36 PM

have you weighed the bus as is?

you got a 55000 cap

just like people say why do run with 100 gal of water--aint it heavy--

I tell them because i dont have room for 200 gal

800 lb for 100gal of water in a 35000 lb bus aint nothing..why worry and have overkill thats a BLUEBIRD

PEX is great stuff for plumbing -- and with your sources, you probably already have a crimping tool. If you don't, one thing to consider are the "Flair-It" connectors. No crimper needed, just tighten with a simple wrench-like tool or use slip joint pliers (but that will tear up the 'nut' a bit).
