This will be a short post showing some recent improvements as well as a photo showing the insulation.
I needed to secure my batteries in their box. They weight 60lbs. each! To avoid any damage from shifting around during travel I built a simple frame around the batteries. I also tacked down some of the wiring to keep things nice and clean. I found a storage bin with drawers that fits in the space above the batteries. The curtain is just a cheap beach towel from a Dollar Store.
For my sink, I wanted to keep it simple as possible. I found a cheap bar sink on craigslist. I got the drain with strainer for the sink from Lowes, as well as the drain pipe. The drain pipe goes right into a 2 gallon water bottle. I don’t use the sink very often. This will be mostly for ‘out of the city’ camping. Although it has come in handy for day camping around town if I need to wash up in the van or if I have a lot of dishes to clean. I can then take the 2gallon bottle with the ‘gray water’ and dump it at a proper facility.
I am still selling off the last of my unneeded possessions. These last few items have the most $ value as well as sentimental value. It was hard posting these on eBay but after they started selling, I already don’t miss them at all. I am becoming more and more excited to be able to fit everything I own into the van. It has taken a lot of organizing and rearranging, but I am almost there.
