In the process of finishing up the passenger side of the interior, I need to insulate the walls. Before I do that, I pulled the last wiring through the wall cavities.
The wall insulation consists of rigid Poly-Iso, separated about 0.5 inch from the skin of the vehicle with a few dots of spray foam, with the Poly-Iso pressed into it. This void acts, both as a barrier and a way to drain any condensation, without wetting the insulation.
I fill-in most of the storage boxes in the ‘garage’ of my van. They are all open boxes with inter-locking bottoms, except for the top box, which receives a top lid. This Formica-finished top lid has three functions: as a top lid of course, as an extension of the kitchen countertop and as a worktop placed on a imperfect picnic table.
Installation of the fuel pump, Rheostat and wire run.
After unpacking the Webasto Gas Heater, I continue building the upper cabinet, including the Rheostat installation. Another unfinished job, was the removal of the van’s jack, which is located inside the passenger side seat’s pedestal, to make room for the heater. Finally, the fuel pump is installed close to where the fuel line enters the gas tank. I pull part of the power wire, that runs to the batteries, including the wires for the main light switch.
Final part of the Toilet Build. I finished the toilet cabinet and installed the separating toilet.
Some is still missing, such as the drawer front and toilet front panel. Those will be installed at the end of the van build. Another missing part is the connection to the gray water tank; that part of the plumbing will be shown in future videos.
The plastic hinges of the fuel door in a Ford Transit are prone to fail. Especially leaving the van when parked next to another vehicle, will force you more backwards, thus hooking the fuel door’s lip with your trouser’s pocket.
