Faulty circuit board!

Currently swapped with an older one will wait for the replacement from coast to coast.

We have hot water :)

Justin,
The speed you are building this van would make Jayco’s production line look slow.

I notice the ‘S’ bend under the sink good work.
The drawers look nice and solid, should never fall apart.

Thanks JR

So suggestions for insurance (qld) and how I go about getting a DIY setup insured?

G'day Justin,

JR and I are swapping traditional roles :lol:

I think your sink plumbing is too nice and overkill. A van sink does not need what looks like standard house waste pipe. My Roadstar sink drains via soft flexible tubing about 25 mm OD. Much smaller and it can be tucked out of the way to open up that space.

Sorry young fella but I can't be nice all of the time. You have had it too easy ;-)

Well I hate to burst your bubble but i have thought of everything!

See pic below, sorry I don't have a totally front on view. I have joined the pipes from the bathroom and the kitchen to a single outlet. The space in between allow for a 20 litre water can to be place under the sink which will have its own pump and filtered water tap for drinking water.

A double folding cupboard witll close off this area.

And I have full size sinks and plumbing which is a bonus :)

Justin, all I am saying is you do not need to have waste pipes of that capacity in a caravan.

In a van the water flows both in and out are less than in a regular house kitchen. Once upon a time waste pipes were 2 inches or 50 mm. The rules changed before I installed my spa about 10 years ago and 40 mm was deemed enough. So here is my spa with a legal 40 mm drain and able to happily cope with emptying 300 litres.

When you are free camping water can be so precious you will be happy for waste to discharge through a drinking straw :lol:

I appreciate it's overkill but it was easy to do and works amazingly.

When I get back from the first trip away I'll be clearing it all again fix any little issues and do a bit of painting to make it a bit nicer inside.

The photos from today don't show the extra shelving I've done as well.
