Vlog 49: The Throne Room

At long last, I made an upgrade to the site of the portable Dometic toilet in the campervan, giving it a dedicated space which is easily accessible both for use and for taking the toilet out for emptying. This finally frees up the space next to it for permanent storage too.

Vlog 46: The Sky is Falling Down

I never liked the corner unit at the back of the van – it was badly made (by me), looked grotty and didn’t hold much in when going round corners. Plus the shelf over the kitchen wasn’t much better. So, I’m re-making them but in order to do this, the job ends up much bigger than planned as I need to re-route some of the ceiling wiring.

Vlog 45: A Tap on the Head

The tap that came with the sink unit in the campervan turns out to be rubbish as the pipe junction from the supply tank is just held in with fresh air and hope – in other words, not held in at all, so recently it began spraying water all around the tank area instead of sending it up to the sink. Thus I bought a new tap and fitted that, as shown in this video.

Vlog 39: Tranquility Base

I mentioned in a recent video that I was going to test whether the new “acoustic ducting” from Propex would really reduce noise levels of the HS2000 propane (LPG) heater in the van, plus I wanted to point my infra-red temperature sensor at the exhaust pipework to see how hot it really gets as it wends its way from the heater to the outside of the van, so in this video I do both those things.

Vlog 36: Back in the High Life Again

After many months with the campervan in secure storage while I went cruising around the canals on my narrowboat (for which, see www.cruisingthecut.co.uk), I am now moored for winter and that means I can go and get the van again and begin my plans for what to do with it and where to go over winter.
