Is this the one, Becky?

Hepworth - Plastic Plumbing, Clay and Plastic Drainage Systems - HepvO Tundish Adaptor Kit - Waste Trap, Bottle Trap, Bath trap, water trap, sink trap

I have never heard of such a thing. Seems like a great idea!

This is the one, Ben:

Well, my progress is going to come to a screaming halt come this weekend. Our greenhouses will open & I'll be there holding customer's hands with their flower selections!

I'm so torn as to what to do with my Sovereign when I finish the Bambi II. I would really hate to sell it, but common sense tells me I shouldn't have two AS's & a big vehicle to tow for a total of 1-2 trips a year. I know the Bambi is never going anywhere! Things to mull over for the next year, that's for sure.

I'm going to play around with some stain before I decide. I really am leaning toward a natural finish, since the walls & floor are dark. That's why I like the dark striping in the wood. Gives it a little "zing" Donno.......I'll keep you posted!

I've made a mock up of the wall that used to go through the window. I think this might work. I can just make a small curtain to go over the opening so it can be opened easily for access to the window cranks.Click image for larger version

Nice job on the TV mount! That puppies not going anywhere!

I like the dark figure in the wood too.... I'll be watching to see what you come up with for the bath/window opening

Looks amazing! That cut-away wall is a huge improvement over the original.

The bathroom walls are finished on the inside. I'll be trimming the edges out pretty soon here.

But before I can trim, I had to get the ac installed in place of the furnace. I have a small catalytic heater that will take the chill off if I'm ever without electric that will be installed soon. The ac install was pretty much like the one Toastie invented (thanks Toastie!) with the exception of the vent. First I made a pan:

It was fitted with a pipe that can be removed from below:

Then I made a reservoir for the water from the ac to drip & drain out the bottom of the trailer. Like Toastie, lots of polyurethane caulk! The pan was fitted to its home in the trailer & holes were marked where the air intake vents would sit. My DH did the task of cutting them (sometimes I don't trust myself!) The air intake vents were made from some aluminum sheeting left over from the belly pan on my '86 Sovereign. I have a neighbor who let me use his brake. First time for everything! They weren't beautiful, but they fit! A hole was drilled in the bottom of the ac unit to let water drain into the pan below it.
The ac is now set in place & secured. I may put some insulation around it, but it's super quiet! Now I can putz in the heat this summer inside the trailer---SWEET!

Very "Cool" install. Does this mean my AC hanging from the front window is 'un-cool'?
