While waiting for the solar panels and propane tank to arrive (and
for the rain to stop), I removed the wall panels & started floor
The floor will consist of 1.5" thick joists glued to the Transit's floor
ribs, rigid foam insulation glued between the joists, a Reflectex
blanket, then .5" plywood panels screwed into the joists. There will be
PEX lines running through, possibly a gray water line as well, one
propane line, and some wiring in electric conduit.
I will cut or notch the joists once I have line locations settled.
The joists are made from 1" rips of a 3/4" ply sheet. Two ripped strips are glued together.
Starting to glue in the strips. I'm using silicon to keep the joint
flexible. I have a silly theory that the impedance mismatch between the
joists and the metal floor will aid in reducing road noise coupled to
& through the plywood floor. The flexibilty of the glue should aid
here (if I'm not just being silly.)
Children are starving just so I can hold down the joists while the glue sets up.
It'll be dry for the next few days and the panels and tank have arrived.
Tomorrow, I'll finsh the joists, then start looking at the solar.
