Floor & Tanks going in the 31'

Well I have finely got the frame done. The grey and black tank are in and plumbed. So I was happy to put down 2 whole sheets of subfloor. It just felt good to get here. So next it's up with the rest of the floor and on we go. Will try for the pics, still having a little trouble seeing pics on this comp.

What kind of wood is the floor?

I hope your removing the pink insulation.

Hi Bob, this 1970 31' started out as a rear bath with no grey water tank. I am moving the bath to center and a rear big bed. The flooring is OSB tongue and groove. The pink insulation is going in the garbage a little each week. I took that as hint from somebody that has been there. Thanks Dave

When we built our house 18 years ago I used OSB for the roof sheeting.It took us a long time to build because we dit it all. One part of some temp roofing material blew off in the winter that I did not see. That sheet of OSB got rained on alot and all it did was swell up a little bit. So I sort of did a test without knowing. I have had plywood delam. more from getting wet. Any idea on what type of sealer would be good? Becaues I think it is a good idea.
The tanks I ordered from a web site that has about any size you would want. I have to run right now but if you want when I get time I will be glad to look in my notes and get the site for you they were great to deal with. Be back later.

Depends on the grade of OSB. But the sealer is still a good idea.

I found the notes. The site is plasticmart.com, Ph 866-310-2556. The guy I talked to in the shop is named Tank. The black is # el263h and the grey is rv69w. If you go to the site it is real easy to pick from a huge list of tanks. They both fit between the cross members. The black tank is sitting in rubber covered angle iron bolted from frame rail to rail. The grey is just a flat water tank that is sitting on an aluminum floor I built in that bay behind the rear axel. They will send you a drawing of the tank and put any fitting or opening anywhere you want it or they can build one anyway you want. I posted a few pics in another thread in this section.
