for sure!! I sent my NexiQ device off to a forum member ot reprogram his bus for a few days, so cant do it this weekend but i like the idea..

I swear its gonna be either the computer or something crazy simple...

but then it *IS* a school bus... Simple and 'School Bus' dont belong in the same sentence..

I noticed its gonna be like 88 in orlando today.. ive got to run over to a site there later today.. will be a good test to see if my fan runs like it supposed to... that warm on the freeway I'll surely have my A/C blasting too.. giving the engine more load..

something to think about too in our cooling endeavors.. water-to-air turbo coolers... they arent cheap but a real idea to save front-of-grill space and still get that full size Rad..

Put your 1/2 gallon drink on the floor and use a longer straw.

I suppose it's because I spend 90% of my time driving the bus whereas most park and dive short..

Although on days like today I had the windows closed and the air conditioner was blasting.. so then the 1st world skoolie problem became the warm outside air from the defrost warming up the drink.. that one I just gotta tear the dash apart and fix the fresh air door

Don't bother with the folding cup holders. I put 8 of those in our bus and only one didn't break on our big road trip. I'm thinking of changing up to something more like these:
Zone Tech Recessed Folding Cup Drink Holder - Black Premium Quality Recessed Sturdy Black Folding Vehicle Adjustable Drink Cup Holder https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XAS6M3I..._SmY0ybTE7YX42

Great, Christopher, let me know what you think of it when it comes in.
I am deep into some other "redecorating" projects like new seat installation and building couches, so haven't had the chance to get one to try.
Meanwhile, husband is doing the fun work of front-end work and wheel bearings. I'm kinda glad I'm the inside person!

Got the last seat freed, took two cut off discs, then resorted to the grinding wheel as I was out of discs.

I left it I'm the back of the bus at first, but then when I was moving something else in the dark tonight I pushed it out the back door and it had the last laugh. Bounced back and took out the bottom window...

Just a thought...

What would happen if one were to pump the condensation away from the A/C and spray it in onto the radiator?

Made a quick video from some random clips. I used the handicap lift at the end to load my motorcycle. It worked well, only needed a short piece of wood to get the back tire on, but I am kind of undecided on whether or not to keep it. A double wide type of ramp would let me ride or walk it up pretty easily. and save a little weight and maybe gain me a couple hundred in selling the lift. Thoughts?

Hoping to strip down some of the interior this weekend.
