Hello from Daytona Beach Florida

My wife and I have converted a school bus into a motor home. We still have a few things left to complete it. My job will be taking me from City to City so this is the way I chose to live. We are so excited!!!! It's a 1990 Wayne Chevrolet with an 8.2 Detroit Diesel. All highway gears and a six speed retarder. Living in a bus seems exciting to us.

I read that one as a six-level adjustable retarder, not a six-speed transmission... But either one would be nice to have.

I'm new here, but I think the first step is a process of admission
