Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

window units tend to be the most plentiful and cheapest.

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

i am thinking that the window unit is going to have to be the way to go. although it is not pretty, the price makes up for it. do you know how many watts a window ac draws? would a 3500 watt geny be enough for that a couple of small tv's and possibly a mini fridge on longer roadtrips?

There's usually a sticker on the side of the AC unit that will say how many watts it is. I used a 5050 BTU window in my bus & ran it off a Honda EU2000 (2,000 watts) and it ran it fine. I was also running a mini fridge and some misc lights and whatnot.

It was a hot summer day (probably 85-90) and the AC had a hard time cooling off the bus, maybe a pair of these A/Cs or a larger one would work better.

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

i found a 8000btu window air today at my workplace(menards) it said that it would cover 360 some odd sq/ft i think that will do considering my bus is only 205.8ish, i think that this extra coverage will make up for the lack of insulation that we aren't putting in. if i did my math correct it will take 1800watts that leavs me with 1200 or so to run the other misc. stuff with. it was only $167.00! so i believe that is what i will end up with any suggestion on how to mount it?

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

interior pain is 99.7% done. just need to touch up some places. took all of the beloved blue tape off and all the tarps off of the windows. I do have an odd request though, we accidentally threw away one too may back rest off of the original seats that we are going to be using as a booth we decided that we are going to use 3 seats instead of 2 so if anyone is starting tear down i need a back seat cover and the pad that goes in it if possible.

Oh it's even less fun when you've already built bunk beds and closets in the way.

Re: BigBallsBus documented with pictures

haha i would imagine.. what did you use to prep the windows before tinting? after i scubbed on them and thought they were fairly clean. you can deffinatly see everything on the window once the tint is on. luckly most of the part i have done is going to be a bathroom so maybe if i can figgure this out the rest of it will look better.
