Finally Moliska is joining skoolie.net!

Finally i am joining skoolie.net! i have been reading and researching here for awhile.....Here is my story, I got the bus about a year and a half ago for $700... did some okay work with minimal money....got a jerk boyfriend...stopped working on the bus to work on him... that's over... So, now its back to working on me!! I have lit the fire under my ass once again... Now i would like a shower and toilet on the bus, and no longer want bunks. With the departure of boyfriend I have seemed to acquired a 16ft camper trailer with no tittle, so she is now a Donner for the bus...here is pics of day one back on the bus...

about the nature intended idea... Is is like women feel the brunt of a relationship during it and the men when it ends?

Probably the tank has a lip molded around it's center for mounting.

cool..so the busted corner isn't a big deal!! (its just a 16x16 cabin with loft my dad and i built...so not too big) I run a 12v 15'' tv, 12v portable dvd player, 12v car stereo, ceiling fan, under cabinet 12v Christmas lights, 5 12v compact florescent bulbs.... NOT ALL AT ONCE! and I have 4 deep-cycles now.... inverter for direct tv... i tried to pull the receiver apart looking for a transformer(had to hacksaw the funny screw heads into Flathead)... no luck.... umm, major plans for bus.. but i don't know about panels due to cost... I need more for the house first... ALSO, I can't get the bus started... I drove it in here... the brake pressure alarm is so loud I can't tell if the solenoid is clicking or not... blah.. blah..

Re: Finally Moliska is joining skoolie.net!

Welcome to skoolie.net.

As for your engine not starting, one thing I ran into about a dozen times before I finally started to keep it straight in my head... I would often leave the transmission in gear after setting the brake, and forget to return it to neutral. The bus just won't start with it in gear. First time it happened, I thought "oh crap, I broke it". After that, I just kept thinking "you dummy, you left it in gear again". Now, I don't forget. lol

Hopefully it is something as simple as that. There are often other safety circuits that can cause an engine not to start, such as a door open, or something similar.

Can't wait to see your future progress. Good luck!
