Worked on rear door insulation, window trim, and wall planking...
I love our berkey. I think we have the medium sized one and we will definitely have it front and center in the van. Water is very important to me.Are users of Berkeys happy with them? (Looking for feedback)
I mentioned this in another thread, don’t know if you are aware - I only discovered recently that for transport the upper chamber stores upside down in the lower chamber, no need to remove the black filters. The lid has to be stored separately, though.I love our berkey. I think we have the medium sized one and we will definitely have it front and center in the van. Water is very important to me.
I am planning on having ours sit on the corner of the sink so you can put a water bottle in the sink under the berkey spout to fill up a water bottle, and also fill it up easily via the pull out faucet. Still have to figure out how I'm going to stabilize it while driving. Most van people with berkey secure it to a corner somewhere.
You can unscrew the lid knob to take it off, and then place the screw back into the knob and place it inside the berkey with your filter parts etc. Then your lid can slide on top of the two combined water container parts.The lid has to be stored separately, though.
Is it similar to what the cat uses now....I cut and secured some plexiglass on the entire interior of our cat litter box. Sealed the corners. Used regular clear painter's caulk for the adhesion and sealing. Hopefully that was a good idea, but it was cheap and it should be easy to remove to do over another way later if that's not working out. We use the clumping clay cat litter and fill the litter really high so leaking really shouldn't be a problem.
Some parts almost dry, the caulk is pretty clear, not super noticeable. (Plus it's for cat litter so who cares lol):

Some parts still drying:

It is white when you put it on. That way you can tell where you're putting it, how good of a job you're doing, and you'll know it's dry when it's clear.
Still need to seal the top edges and the edge around the door hole. Then I'm going to add a little trim around the door hole and then put a hinged lid on top.
I hope our cat uses this thing. She is very picky.
No, they use an open cat litter box, but it just takes up too much room, do I thought making it into a seat would be good. Plus I wanted it to be higher so my boy cat doesn't fling cat litter everywhere in the van when covering poop.Is it similar to what the cat uses now....

That's why I'm adding a meter to my rebuild. I want to know what's going on with my electrics.Today and since last Monday I’ve been trying to figure out why suddenly shore power is not charging my battery. What fun right? At 6 pm I’ll go see if the battery finally charged. (Cleaned my solar panels today too!) starting thinking I maybe had bought a faulty 100’ extension cord. Went back to my original and one I know works, for today.
