You are certainly building the experience with wiper issues.

If it's going to rain they could stop and get a bottle of that glass treatment that makes the water run off the windows faster. You hardly need wipers at all with that stuff on the glass.

CB, we seem to have been paralleling this cold/flue all this time since turkey day. Your descriptions are exactly what I've been having too. I think that was a little to strong to be just a cold. Better to happen now than the holidays.

I would have said flu, but I never got close to having a fever.

Interestingly, it says on Midwest that the later gauge cluster will fit 96+ IC's.

Latest word is that the clearance marker lamps don't work.
I'm thinking its gotta be fuses or those breakers. Maybe one or more aren't working or mia.
I can't be upset. My last electro-bus had this kind of crap to overcome. I'll learn as I go, and hope that Chris does end up down in FL a lot this winter!!

On a positive note- the bus has probably had a pretty gentle life if its got that drivetrain and governed to 55.

The clearance lights sound like mine. I can hear my breaker flipping back and forth when I turn them on. I'm hoping it's just a bad light causing the problem.

Or the school went ham-fisted into the wiring removing camera stuff, like my last bus!

Yeah, buying buses is a lot like buying used cars. You don't know exactly what you've got until you take it out and run it up through a mountain pass. Yours will be fairly well tested by time you receive it.

I bought this one sight unseen, other than photos. The auction was closing within a couple hours and there wasn't time to go look at it. You pays your money and takes your chances.

I can deal with clearance lights and wipers. Easier to fix those than to swap a 466 and 2000 into my old bus!

I need to get down there so we can have some fun with your new bus!.. my guess is things got knocked loose when the schools pulled their stuff out..

and yeah that DT466 and AD2000 probably had a nice easy life.. but in texas its warm enough it most certainly got well warmed up on its routes! seems like a near perfect combo to me.. some busses have a separate dash switch for the clearance lights.. my bluebird does..

Yes, I cannot wait to see you again, Chris!!!
Shaun said with the pedal to the metal it never moves from 50 going uphill or down and the temp never moves from where it stays once its warmed up. Around 170-180.

LATEST NEWS-
Its not limited to 55. Its limited to 50

Shaun's literally getting a trophy for this. He's a trooper!
He's having fun, so that's good. Apparently its used VERY little fuel on this trip so far, too!

They're staying near Baton Rouge. Not bad for only 5o mph and getting delayed by the jerks at the school.
I can't wait to get a computer hooked up to it to find out if the mileage is correct. The odometer shows 77k and 3300 hours.
He said the one who gave him the hardest time was the mechanic. Guy tried to tell shaun he couldn't take the bus without a cdl! I've never heard of that. Shaun said that guy was awful butt hurt about something.
