I would put it behind the rear axle if I was you.
Your engine is even more heavy than the 5.9 cummins. Your bus is also has a longer over hang beyond the front axle than a TC2000.
This all means you need more weight father back, behind your rear axle.

I was going to add a heat coil from the boiler into the tank and may still. But the lines under the tank will be far safer from glycol contamination of the fresh water.
Now that it's going under the bus, the fresh water tank will be 400 to 500 gallons.
