Rick.
Thanks. I chose Natures Head composting toilet although for no particular reason - I'm very happy with it. So glad I decided to ditch the black tank & toilet. I see alot of advantages Airhead has over Natures head - distance to wall and smaller overall footprint probably being the most significant.
Haven't been out looking for sheds yet. Still getting blacktail and elk on game cams still sporting their head gear.

Del, amazing work on your '65. Really like the use of copper and the wood skins inside. Your level of ingenuity is unmatched. Certainly apparent in your Hot Lips shower system. I also sympathize with your reluctance to perform exterior penetrations.

Thanks Pygmypoacher:
I liked that you managed to work in a large TV....just bought a
38" with sound bar that I intend to install over the back window with
some means and way to raise and lower the TV behind the bed.

Do/can you use yours on Inverter function (?) and any advice on amperage
draw.

PS Just 2-3 hrs up the Road from you ....got hook ups if you're in the area.....Near the Silver Reef casino.

Yes, my 42" led runs off the Magnum inverter. I'm using a Samsung blu ray player and klipsch promedia 2.1 under the front curb side corner table. Nearly every outlet has a separate 110v breaker. Using a 200lb magnet attached to a small under counter drawer that the TV stand latches onto when in use. HDMI and power connect in the overhead cabinet. TV stores in the rear drawer under the bed. Amp draw is minimal for the TV - 3 ish amp/hr. It's the subwoofer that is piggish.

Thanks for the offer and will definitely look you up if we get up that way. Sister in law has family up there.

Pygmy your creativity and playfulness with aluminum still amazes me.

During the initial renovation I installed two 300ah 6v AGM batteries along with my 2000w Magnum inverter charger. I've since added two more batteries for a total of 600ah at 12v (300ah usable with 50% limit}. I installed 480w of solar using an MPPT controller (increases input amps using excess voltage from the panels). Solar package of 160w panels came from AMSolar in Oregon. Installed myself, it was pretty easy compared to the renovation. Click image for larger version

head door

Looking good. Im just now getting around to finishing my shower/head. Got the walls on and having a stainless steal shower pan made. I built the inclosure out of cedar fence board. Looks nice...nice contrast and great smell. I built the door today and damn if that thing isnt heavy. I like the door on your head. Looks like you double sides a piece of aluminum of steal. Can you tell me what you used and how you built that. Looks great. Cheers, Mike
