Tell me about it. This project has consumed the last 3.5yrs of my life, and it'll be at least a few more months before the truck is all put back together, and probably another six months to finish it. That's if everything goes well. All comes down to time and money. Building something like this is obviously a lot of work, and I made the decision early-on that I was not going to let it put me into debt. So it's taken longer than I would have liked, but all things considered, think it's coming together pretty well. Whenever I start to get anxious, just try to take a step back and keep things in perspective. I've been working on a lot of other projects too. Some of them are the kind of things that make all this possible, and some are completely unrelated. Haven't posted much about any of that stuff because I didn't want to clutter-up this thread, but I've been spreading myself pretty thin. That's kinda how I like to work.DAMN IT! I just read the whole thread and the suspense is killing me! Subscribed!
I know, right? My Grandpa is a badass!That is a very cool heritage your family has Jesse! I often question the lives we lead....are we really leading or unknowingly following.
That's unfortunate, but not surprising. It does seem to be on the delicate side of things. Very 'plastic-ey'. Not really what I want in a toilet. Even in a motorhome, but especially one that I'll be living in fulltime. Bummer about the stink too. What about water consumption? Still don't really know much about how that solid/liquid separating and recirculating stuff actually works.On the subject of toilets and since we have some history there, your old Thetford Aquamagic that you sent my way is still in action in a portable sea container shop, my buddy said it does the job but it is quite breakable and it does stink unless you use a lot of chemical.
You will have the coolest toilet in your rig, you have managed to find a toilet that has character! What are the odds?
Mariah was a 50ft long, 13ft wide, motor-sailboat made in Holland in the late 60's by Beister. Had a steel hull that was 3/16" below the waterline and 1/8" above the waterline. Weighed about 50-tons. Grandpa bought it from the original owners, who had taken it all over the world, from Europe down through the Canal and all over the Pacific and up to Alaska and a bunch of other places.Badass stories. How big was the Mariah? 50ft about?
Who is that in the pic with the fish? uncle?
Those are some old old shitters, I would check the seals in them, they tend to rot out and then run constantly.
