Okay I finally got around to putting the sink in. Had to pull the tool box out to put the drain in and run the electrical for the faucet (which I will install after the winter is over). That was a pain but it did let me inspect how the insulation is doing behind the box (this is cotton batting) and it was as dry as a bone back there. So that is good to know.
The sink will drain outside of the van but if I need to, I can pull the clear hose out of the black PVC irrigation pipe (that I used as the pass through from the inside of the van to the outside) and run it into a grey water jug.
Okay here are some more pictures of the van after we have been using it for a number of trips. Been great so far. The tray for the bikes in the back has been very nice for loading and unloading bikes, the one big challenge is if you park on an incline then it is either sliding open or closed depending on the incline. Have to find some way to lock it in place.
So long ago I promised some pictures of the heat exchanger and air heater that I installed under the passenger seat. So here they are.
I hooked some water heater hose up to the heat exchanger, these will be used to heat water for showers which at this time will be done by pumping water from a bucket through the heat exchanger and back to the bucket. Once the water is hot enough a shower head with a pump will be placed in the bucket. Not sure how hot the water will get right away so wanted to play with it first.
Just a post to say that my water heater works great. The water can get very hot so you need to make sure it is not scalding before use. Heats water up way faster then a large pan on a propane stove.
The downside is that you have to set the system up (ie pull out hoses, hook pump up to one end of one hose, both hoses then go in bucket, plug pump into DC outlet). When water is hot turn it off, drop shower head pump in and shower then put everything away vs if you just had a permanent shower set up.
Upside is that it is super flexible, can easily heat up multiple buckets of water (if water is easy to get) and you can take buckets anywhere to shower.
