Watch your tail, got my bus stuck
So, I am currently working on converting my bus to an RV, I have quite a bit done, but now need to save a little more money for a few items. My daughter also has a bus and we are converting that one into a tiny house for her to live in. We have her bus parked at a family friends house due to only one spot at my house.
We, Sunday I had to swap them to start pulling the seats out of her bus. I got her bus home just fine, but when I went to bring my bus back to the property I got it stuck.
The road that goes up to the property is steep. And the turn is very tight because it is not 90 degrees, but doubles back at about 45 degrees. I swung the bus as wide as I could, but was trying to get off the road and it did not work. The tires dropped into a small depression in the road allowing the tail to drop and hit the road as the nose went up the road. Bad scrape and then no forward movement. I tried to back up, but the RR tire was just barely touching the ground. Worst part was I was blocking half of the road, a somewhat busy road.
I tried everything I could think of and nothing worked.
I finally walked over to a trailer park and talked a guy into using his truck to pull me back a few feet.
It took three tries and a broken tow strap, but we were able to pull it back just enough for the tires to grab and pull itself out.
After I got it out, I went around the block and approached it from the other direction and had no issues.
Lesson learned, watch the tail, it will drag and you will get stuck.
