Jasmine

Ok, time to go ahead and start my new project thread, even though I haven't taken physical possession of the bus yet.

One caveat though.... this particular bus was actually my second choice... the one I was trying for someone else snatched it out from under me. This one is fundamentally identical, except for having 30k more miles.

That being said.... meet Jasmine:



Oh wait... wrong Jasmine. However she is the inspiration behind the name.

The bus is a 2005 so that makes it 11 years old (or 12, depending on when it was built). Jasmine is 19.

So.... I received the 10 gallon water heater I ordered today... however the access door I ordered with it did not show up. Have already contacted the company to find out what's going on with that.

Dayum.... this sucker is a LOT bigger than I expected.



The other day I received the 50 amp power cord and inlet, so I'm getting off to a pretty good start I guess.

After reaching out to the company I ordered the water heater from, they are shipping the door 2nd day FedEx on their dime since it was their error. Should be here Friday or Monday.

Chris: It's a 2005 so it is a lot newer than most of the conversions you see. Paying a bit more than I would like ($7500) but it's worth it to me.

I will be picking it up as soon as the money hits the bank (should be tomorrow) then I have to get up to Whitestown IN so it may be the first part of next week.

CarytownCat: Yes, all it took was a phone call to the company, told them what happened.... apparently the door was picked but for whatever reason never shipped. Mistakes happen, I get that.... the fact that they made it right so quickly means I'll probably order from them again... in fact I have a shopping cart ready to go with my city water inlet/tank fill, water pump, strainer, pressure regulator, accumulator tank and supply hose. With the sale they have going right now I'm getting all that for less than $200.
