Need some help with the water pump and water heater.. Which is best propane or electric?? What are you guys using? How much etc... Going to purchase these things within the next 2 weeks.. That would be my next project after the electrical and closing up the walls. maybe 2 or 3 weeks from now.

Window install looks great...I am going with a propane on demand from Ebay for $150.00....Shurflo pumps work great also..I am installing my window 3X8 in the next week or so. I was going to use 2x2 square stock aluminum, but I might after seeing your install just go with 2x4 or 2x3's...thanks for the great pictures!

Aluminum was way to expensive for me!! 2x4 worked great.. I would recommend 2x3..

Next weekend all of my electric work will be done..

Today was a long day of work for me. Took down the ceiling, framed out the driver side wall. Next weekend just gotta put up two more studs on that wall and i would be done with it then doing the floor with Diamond plate and all the electrical work is going to put in.
 
Hoping i could have this done by October..
 




 
Ive been buying appliances on craigslist. So far i have freezer, fridge & ice machine.

You may want to take a close look at how your generator frame is supported.  It looks like its resting on the bottom angles, which are then only held in place by corner welds both top and bottom, which may be taking the full weight of the generator, which is significant for that amount of structural support, especially when you consider bumps and vibrations.  We do all frames such as this from square stock reinforced with corner triangle plates.

This morning i woke up and headed to home depot was there for about 2 or 3 hours just thinking on what i had left to do on truck and items i needed to purchase..
 
I ended up buying Pocket Door Frame 24x80 $69.00
http://www.homedepot.com/p/JELD-WEN-24-in-x-80-in-x-4-9-16-in-Pocket-Door-Frame-474071-0/202037112
 
a door and some wood that i needed to frame out the genny box and build the other side of the partition wall. Installed the front half of the diamond floor before i put up the pocket door frame.



 
Also purchased these brackets so it would be easier to take the walls all the way up to ceiling and eliminate the curve.

 
More work to come tomm.

Build my generator cover box. Trying to do it as strong as possible. Since im putting my ice machine on top of it. Going to cover the inside of it (generator side) with plywood insulate in between and plywood on top (inside of truck). Also finished the framing on the  partition wall.
 



 
My goal for tomm. Finish the floor, Run one extra wire just in case i add a second A/C unit in the future, change all marker lights bought all of them new on ebay. and what ever else comes up. Would like to cover the walls next weekend.
