Running front and rear ac on a regular 80-90 degree day keeps the whole bus comfy.

yeoow thats hot!! I remember tossing an A/C belt in death valley on our IHC scout many years ago.. we ffound this little shop with an old guy sittin in a garage next to a swamp cooler.. he had just 3 things in his shop..
every kind of belt imagined, every hose imagined, and Coolant (and of course a water hose)...

dissipating heat from a van chassis is tough.. im wondering if the dog bowl hinders heat dissipation while of course making the engine run better...

idea being that positive pressure into an area that should be negatively pressurized.. making the fan have to work that much harder to move air...

I kind of got that idea from watching the show that not all of them are into the bus.. I mean it is a bit out there... but so are some of their builds.. its fits the show

Both the bus and the car would fit right into Houston's 'Art Car' parade. There are many more that are much more "out there". It's a great day for fun. Tango may be able to get the dates for this years parade. That might be a good time to have another Houston area gathering.
