Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

I'm not a HVAC expert, but it seems to me that since cold air is denser than warm air, you would want your cold air supply to be ducted all the way up to the ceiling so that you end up with a more even temperature throughout the bus, rather than cold air near the floor and warm air at head level. The opposite would apply for heating. I assume that's why air conditioners are typically installed on the roof, while furnaces have their ducted registers near the floor.

I passed all my D.O.T physical, Drug Screening, and background check. My next class is at 3:00pm CDL Course. I take My Class A DL permit exam in morning, if I pass I will be on the road by SAT. Prime Trucking School has been good so far .

The way the wind is blowing, you might find your Eagle in Colorado when you get back. Or buried in the dust!

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

It's been a while since I checked on this thread. Pretty cool that you bought some land outside of town and can dry camp there legally. I'd like some details on how you are hauling in your fresh water and disposing of waste water. I assume your black tank is lower than the bed of your truck, requiring a pump of some kind to get it out. While I have a few theories on how that can be done, I'd like to know what is working for you.

BTW, hold on to that Ranger. I owned one for 15 years withe a 4 cylinder 5 speed and put 235,000 miles on it, and it was still running strong when I sold it.

NM is pretty lax about some things. We are living two or three miles from Chad's bus. We are about 1 mile from town and I drive 4 miles to work, thru town, on the 'far" side of town. I had someone at work comment on how we live "way outside of town in the country". In NC, we lived 13 miles from town at one time. Things are "different" here in NM.
