Ok so I red a lot of posts about insulating the campervan, I live near Montreal Canada, I'm thinking I want to have the possibility to camp out from mid March (23°F avg) to mid December (21°F avg), so it can get pretty cold (mostly at night).
Working on my design for a DIY campervan, I came up with a couple of ideas, please tell me what you think and what your experiences are.
Basically I'm Trying to move all the water tanks inside the vehicle rather then under it :
-Fresh water tank with pump under the bench.
-Grey water tank under the bench next to the kitchen sink (gravity)
-Black water tank : Thetford cassette, under the toilet seat but above the van's floor
-Grey water from the shower : I was thinking making a 27"x24"x8"High shower base slopped to a SIDE drain connected to a small pump transferring the water to the grey water tank under the seat, maybe with a manual on/off switch (no floats)
As a result all the water pipes and tanks are above the van's floor and in the heated area. So no insulating the tanks or heating pads/wires under the van.
Am I forgetting anything?
Am I over thinking this?
