Your bus looks great. I love the wood walls and the wood door.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Diesel Dan its a 12,000 BTU. It's supposed to do about 340 square feet (bus is roughly 200+ish) it does struggle to cool it off on really hot days. It may be a bit easier with the door now in. We are going cut a hole in the floor and lower it into a sheet metal box and vent it below the bus so its out of site. Its also a dehumidifier so that should help get the moisture out because it is humid here in the summer and damp in the fall/winter. We wanted to conserve head room because my wife and i are both over 6foot

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Went shopping today and got the tv - 32inch LED ultra thin... I wasn't planning on mounting where it got mounted but just happened to have one of those hmmmm i wonder if it would fit there.... and loved it... its out of the way and allows us to run our upper cupboards on the drivers side much farther down creating more storage. I had seen a few people on here put them there too.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Not to change the subject too much, but I have a pet peeve about these TV manufacturers nowadays labeling their sets as LED HDTVs. I hope everyone realizes the picture is not LEDs, but an LCD just like every other non-plasma flat screen TV made for less than $15,000. The backlighting is LEDs, and for some reason the manufacturers have decided that people will buy a new TV if they think it has a display made of LEDs. It does not.

Got that off my chest.

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

And a worthwhile pet peeve it is! I bought an ity bity 19"
LED" TV/DVD for my ity bity bus and was dismayed to see that the owners manual had a bunch of "correction" stickers all over it. It seems that where ever the word LCD appeared, the manufacturer just pasted a LED sticker over it! Gotta love that!

A million years ago and in a different life I used to kill time waiting for the next jet out of Burbank Ca (to go twist up some wrong doer) wandering the aisles of a place called Fry's Electronics (now universe wide I expect) looking at all sorts of stuff. Fry's original Burbank location had a movieola motiff made up of old sci-fi movie sets and was just fun to look at. Consequently I have a soft spot for their local branch store--that's not to say I've been spared being ripped off--I just feel better about it.

I don't have an expectation of longevity when it comes to my LCD?LED? purchase but I have laughed my Arse off warching "The Long Long Trailer" over and over again. Ya pays Ya money and Ya takes Ya chances! Jack

Re: Project Niles Skoolie

Well, if you're gonna be picky about the backlight source.. The LED backlit are superior to the older CCFL fluorescent (or can be, depending on implementation) because the backlight can be selectively shut off in regions that are displaying black, or dimmed in regions that are showing dark colors. That improves the contrast even though the image source is the same LCD panel as always. I don't have data on it, but I'd guess the LED backlight is likely to give brighter illumination than the CCFL did too.
