Fasting in Islam, (known as Sawm (صَوْم) or Siyām (صِيَام), also commonly known as Rūzeh or Rōzah (Persian: روزه)), is the practice of abstaining, usually from food, drink, smoking, and sexual activity. During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan Sawm is observed between dawn and sunset when the evening adhan is sounded.
You are not exempt from fasting. Even if your van is always moving to different locations, you need to fast as a frequent traveler.
No action is due on you.
Qadha fast can be broken deliberately any time before Zawaal (Midday or Dhuhr time)..
If Dhuhr time comes then it will be Haraam to break a Qadha fast.
Qaza fast is obligatory on you as soon as you can. If you become permanently ill and never able to fast, then you need to feed for every day a poor believer which is called Fidya. That is for the days missed while you are ill. For the days which you missed during your youth with out illness, you need to feed sixty poor believers for every day of missed fast.
If fasting harms her health or the health of her embryo, she is then not allowed to fast.

- Monday and Thursday of every week.

You must do Qadha and also do the Kaffara of deliberately breaking the fast which is either fasting two months continuously or feeding sixty poor believers for every day of broken fast. You also need to seek forgiveness for that sin.

Taharah is a real condition شرط واقعي in Prayers and fasting. Any worship which requires Purity (Taharah) is invalid if it was done with out purity.
If you could not learn basic rules of Ghusl and never been informed that Ghusl is obligatory in certain cases, which is very rare now a days, then the rule is different. But if you knew about Ghusl and it becomes obligatory in certain situations, and you did not know that it applies on you, and you fasted with out Ghusl, then you need to perform the obligatory Ghusl then perform every worship which was performed with out Ghusl.
You can read the verdict of Ayatullah Sustani as follows:
Ruling 1593. If a junub in the month of Ramadan forgets to perform ghusl and remembers after one day, he must keep a qaḍāʾ fast for that day; and if he remembers after a few days, he must keep a qaḍāʾ fast for all the days that he is certain to have been junub on. For example, if he does not know whether he was junub for three or four days, he must keep qaḍāʾ fasts for three days.
If you did not know, and you did not have the ability to educate yourself about these things, then your fasting is valid. Otherwise, you will need to do qadha.
ِAnd Allah knows best
If you deliberately broke any the fast of any day of the month of Ramadan, you need to pay Kaffara beside Qaza and Istighfaar. Kaffara for every day of broken or deliberately missed fast is feeding sixty poor believers. Feeding means giving them one meal of food or at least 750 grams of wheat or rice or any food item.
If broke the fast with out knowing that it is obligatory on you to fast, then just Qaza of the fast is enough.
If you did that thinking that Fajr time did not come yet, your fasting is valid.
Yes it is recommended to fast on A'rafat day for those who are not traveling and don't become weak to perform the recommended A'maal of A'rafah.
Pilgrims in A'rafat don't fast because they are travelers.
