If you or someone else here knows where I might find out info on doing slides myself it would be appreciated. I have googled & info I have found is minimal. Need schematics of T94 chassis structure under the side skins.

I understand - it's all preference. The verticle beams in the side walk supports match the window dividers. Between those there are angled supports and of some other verticals.

When you remove the side luan and carpeted walls above the floor radiators you will see the foam insulation and the way the structure in wall repeats. On outside is just sheeting. I'll try and get a pic, but you will see what I'm referring to when the wall covering is removed. You can get all measurements from the interior.

Chiller / Aqua Heat continued

So I finally got back into the chiller components a little. Finished the two control boxes that house all the start cap / run cap and contractors. Added a volt & amp meter to each compressor. The compressors are industrial and run on 265v ac so there is a boost transformer and the meters help monitor everything is working correctly. The other control box regulates the chiller temps in 4 stages. You can see its powered up for the first time in the pic.

Here is the buck/boost transformer secretly converting the 240v to 265



The water pump next to it is for the continuous circulation of the water through the chiller to the holding tank. Tank will be the last thing I install after the rest of pluming. Everything including the heater has been tested for power at this point. The 4 24v ac control circuits is all that needs to be wired to the indoor control box.

Now it's about time to work on the air/water heat handlers inside the bus. There will be 4 zones controlled with water solenoid valves and multi speed fans..

Here is the inside of one of the compressor control boxes. (The box that has the voltage monitor on the face)

Knowledge base

I get that your a technical guru, but how did you come by the knowledge of chillers?
Any suggestions or warnings for a newbie

I am just starting to plan and gather technical research a bus conversion

Any thoughts of a school bus versus a commercial bus coach?

Composting toilets compared to a black water system?
I am considering 6 160 watt solar panels, any thoughts here?
