The big barrier for us right now are the infamous rear heaters and their coolant hoses.
For the life of me I can't seem to find a valve on the engine to close... Would it be awful if I just cut the hoses and then top off the reservoir afterwards?
Also- I'm no electrician. Our switchbox looks like a rat's nest... Would it be so wrong to cut the wires leading to the two heaters in back and the one under the driver's seat and cap them?
Been taking lots of photos. Stills and video coming soon!
We dealt with that this past weekend. I wasn't there (at the Miami Dolphins game) and my son-in-love and his buddy cut the hose and coolant came out of the hoses into the bus, he was able to catch most of it in a bucket. But the coolant reservoir is empty. (I posted yesterday about what to put in there, haven't gotten a response yet).
That said, he bought a 4" piece of hose and clamped it off on Sunday and he's going to see what needs to be done with the rest of it.
Looking forward to the pics!
