Have no idea. Got it with a full tank, but won't take any metrics until I get it fully serviced.

Oh and I didn't take a picture of the roof.
The front of it, right by the "school bus" is nicely rusted, and looks like someone drove under something without clearance. Not rusted through, and the bump is nothing that a hammer and a block can't fix ;)


My neighbor came by yesterday as I was peeling off letters. He and his buddies were very curious and were pumped about the project!

I told the guys to come to this forum, he was reading as he was walking away lol

Slowly, but still going....I might finish the letters today....

And for the parts list: replacement headlights + some of the marker lights + replacement stop lights = less than $80 at the auto parts store

Heat gun was basically free as I still had a visa gift card with enough on it ;)

3m makes a "destuctive" type disc for removing paint and stuff. I may try mine on my school bus lettering.

There several makers of "Strip Disks" these days and they do work great. Will quickly remove just about any kind of finish and won't gouge, scratch or score the metal. In fact, the sheet metal shop I work with here uses them to polish stainless.

And I learned another hint from them. Keep the disk as flat as possible and it will last twice as long. It is tempting to bear down on an edge and sometimes you have to, but working it flat really does extend the life. They ain't exactly cheap, but neither is my time. I like'em!

CB let me tell you, the heat gun was super easy! It even helped removing the residual adhesive from older markers on the bottom of the body. I figured that way I won't have to use too much liquid remover.

OK guys, I have a question, because I'm not seeing a clear answer from my searches. Am I correct in assuming all these "sureflo" and orher water pumps have some type of pressure sensors so to stop the motor from turning when the fosset is shut off and not needing to pressurize the lines any longer?

Are sensors installed separately to control the pump?
If so, does anyone know of an "all-in-1" model?

Pardon my ignorance, but all I know about plumbing is that a leaky washmachine inlet can be very dangerous in the middle of the night....

Finally found something!
This >http://www.amazon.com/SHURflo-4008-1...+GPM+RV+Camper
shows the pump has a shutoff and a restart pressure, which (I assume) are adjustable.
Neat
Not a bad price, and everyone seems to looove shurflo!
