Re: 1996 Bluebird Conversion

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. Other priorities have taken me away from updating. The bus is 28" to answer the last question. I will do some major updates once the snow melts... At this rate in July maybe... A couple months.

This is the same size as ours. We pick it up next month!!! I'll definitely be taking some inspiration from you!

They are maintenance and spill free and can be kept inside the bus. These particular batteries are group size 31, and are approximately 125 AH. I put a three year old pair in my deuce and a half (BIG army truck). That was 4 1/2 years ago and they still will start the truck even after sitting idle for months.

I finally remembered the model of battery these are. They are Sprinter 370's. I sure wish I had some of these for my bus!
