Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

LOL put a prison name on the side and then park it out in the woods and start a timer to see how long it takes the sherrifs dept to show up with reports of a prison bus ditched in the woods. I forsee cops all over the place looking for escaped prisoners riding dirt bikes!! lol
could be fun!

Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

I highly suggest against putting a prison name on the side... You wont want the bill for all those officers out around you bus...

It was just a joke.I am not putting the name of a prison on the side.
Now on to a serious question:I have installed the power inverter in my bus.I have the converter and wiring from the camper I plan on installing,and I hope to install the generator this weekend.
I have read alot on wiring this stuff up,and have became very confused.
Could someone be so kind to send me in the right direction,or draw a simple diagram that's easy for a idiot to follow?

Thank You!
I did use Luan on the interior.I have exactly 48" from the ledge at the bottom of the outboard seat mount to the center of the half round closeout trim on top.
The metal I covered the window openings WAS the interior panels below the windows.It was the exact same height as the windows!
I reused the same screws.I just held the metal up and transfered the holes into the pillars between the window openings.
I then sealed all the gaps with a 50yr.outdoor,paintable calking.In the end,I have less than $10.00 for the calking.
Flat metal would have looked better to me,but for the cost of free,I can live with it.
