Re: The Silly Been (my new bluebird)

Does anybody know anything about turning the stock rear heater into a hot water heater?

That would be a lot of work. Check out these units:

They use engine coolant to make hot water while your engine is running (or in my case, when the Webasto heater is running too) and plug into 120 volt shore power when the engine isn't running. They aren't particularly expensive, either.

I NEED HELP

I cant find any information on the site about the aluminum runners that the seats lock into. They are through bolted to the bottom of the bus. There is an allen head on top and bolts underneath. They are a pain. We had a drill with an allen on it and I was underneath holding the bolts. Every 3 were stripping, although the allen bit is not stripped. I got a drill bit and started drilling the heads off but that was eating up $5 bits, and I can't afford that. I pulled out the dremel with a cut-off wheel and crawled underneath, it is going through wheels every 1-2 bolts.

Does anyone have any experience with these? There are about 100 bolts.
