It is referenced in my signature below my post as Hiker's Paradise. If you go directly, you will find no photos thanks to greedy Photobucket. Ziggy reports that there is a Chrome extension to bring them back.

My van does indeed feel as light and airy as it appears in the photos. I savor rainy days as well as sunny ones.

Sorry. Should have mentioned that I haven't tested a good mobile solution for this.

IOS/Apple Chrome does not accept plugins due to Apple's restrictive security policies :( (I switch from my beloved iPad to a desktop to do this trick)

I don't use my Android stuff much, but policies in that environment are less restrictive. I'll charge one of my Android tablets and see if I can test a solution this weekend.

Works great with Chrome on both PC and Apple desktops and laptops, I can report.

Forum member dttocs has provided me (and you) a bandaid. He has archived my threads and posted them: https://msnomer.neocities.org/ I will put this link in my sig line.

He has also shown me a workaround for Wordpress so I can continue that pursuit. Many thanks to dttocs, and to Ziggy, also, for his workaround.

This Photobucket snafu has been enlightening. I had no idea how many folks wanted to see my photos.

Teaser: This morning I am excited as I put the finishing touches on my shower stall. Imagine a 2' x 3' shower stall (with an asterisk) whose entire superstructure weighs about a pound and goes up and down in less than a minute. When erected, there is still access to the counter and all drawers, and the potty can be in place. Front seats are blocked, but we can still function as it dries. I will probably try postimage for its photos.

I will put this link in my sig line. Many thanks to him and to Ziggy for helping with this dilemma.

Dttocs has also shown me how to make Wordpress work better, so I will continue with that project. Photobucket's greed has made me more aware of how many folks are interested.

With it up, we can still access the counter, all drawers and the potty, so it can be left up to dry. For that post, I will try postimage for the photos.

I'm not understanding your question. I don't have air conditioning. For air circulation, I open windows and set the MaxAir to exhaust. I think the Rustoleum is an excellent idea. In retrospect, if one had the time and money, it would be an excellent idea to have the whole interior cargo area painted before anything else. The interior paint can almost be scraped off with a fingernail.

Hiking gives one a perspective useful for this project. Put one foot in front of the other, then do it again, knowing that you will eventually get there. At the time, I thought I was going at a snail's pace, but as I go back through my thread, I see that three weeks into the project, we had MaxAir, insulation, and a finished ceiling.

The vent I used was for a wooden box I built for my batteries. It has no bottom and the batteries are sitting on the van floor on a mat. The box is sealed on its corners and the cover is sealed with foam tape. There is a hole drilled in the box top and a vent hose slopes upward to a fixture on the side of the van. The gas you are venting is Hydrogen, a potentially explosive product of fast charging and discharge of the lead-acid of the battery. It is much lighter than air and will move upwards but not down which is why mine goes out the side of the van. There are rooftop vents. Many feel venting is not necessary and my previous RV had none. I purchased this vent kit:

Human gases are discouraged in our camper. If any occur we have awning windows open almost all the time and a Fantastic Vent on the roof!
