oh man, I absolutly love this bus. Drove it home today, and it is a dream to drive. Plenty of power even to go over the rockies. Cruising at 65 is niceat around 2200 rpm, it powers out between 70 and 75 somewhere.
Drivers seat is air ride, cant feel all the bumps in the road, this thing drives smoother then my pick up or full size van. Sure it hurts when the tank is at an 1/4 you put $170 in and it is still only 3/4 full. But the driving is just nice, big window to see everything.
Got a coupple of questions for the people that know. This bus is an "automatic" it has a digital diplay with 2 number fields, one is called "monitor" the other "select" it has an up and down button, D, N.
Are you supposed to shift this bus or is it supposed to gear shift itself?
When i put it in drive it shows monitor 5 and select 5, to get it in to 1st i have to push the down button till i get to the 1 and then with speed have to push up till i'm back at five. isnt this supposed to be doing it by itself?
Also does anybody have a user or maintenance manual for this bus? Paper or CD version, or can point me in the right direction where I could by this?
The wide door on the passenger side used to be a wheel chair access door, however it has been deactivated, but it shouldnt be to much trouble to get it back in to service again, I will defenetly try to open it just to be able to get all the seats out a little easier.
The engine needed some boosting first but once the batteries had enough charge it started right up, no blowing smoke.
Really like the jake brake.
And did i say it already??? Cruising is so nice with this bus.
