At the painted desert @ Petrified Forest.
Having a little problem with fuel vapor build up in the exhaust. To the point the tank was wheezing full time. My tank was supposed to be vented but my cap wasnt a vented cap. Drilled a hole in my gas cap.

Petrified Forest and Route 66 Wig Wam Motel. Just swung through for pics at the motel. Rushed on to the Meteor Crater.

Well, I bet it's vented now !

Thanks for sharing the pics- it's a big motivational boost to us in mid-build and we need all the help we can get to keep shelling out cash and time into our monstrosities.

Happy Trails !

My cooling system and ac does ok to keep a cool breeze blowing across my face. 118 today near Hoover Dam. Tried to run dash ac and my engine temp started to creep up. So i just draped a water soaked towel across my arms and toughed it out. 114 inside at 55 mph.
Running front and rear ac on a regular 80-90 degree day keeps the whole bus comfy.
