As promised here are some pictures for detail on how I chose to install this box.
the hanger

Nuts jammed together to prevent loosening

The box tightened against the floor supports as well as the openings (one on each side) for the air return grates that will be used to provide air flow through the box.

If you reallllllly don't want those bolts moving you can always use locktite, super glue, or some clear nail polish.

Solar system progress

Making some progress with the solar charging system. Batteries are in and wired, one big 12v battery now. Cables have been built and run to the electronic cabinet. Solar charge controller and monitor are wired. Have to do some wiring for the inverter, shore power and load center. Getting there.

Heater help please

"So I replaced my heater hoses (cabin) a while back and relocated the heaters, the heaters sit on there sides now. I finally have good circulation of coolant through the system and no leaks thankfully. One thing that has me confused is that the heater blowers will not turn on. I have the two heater switches on as well as the booster pump switch? I'm confused, is the coolant just not hot enough or do the heaters somehow sense the temp in the bus?

First, I would grab a test light or voltage meter and make sure you have power to the heaters.

I have never seen a blower motor have any sort of thermostat on it.
