Hello from Indiana

Been posting for a few days, I suppose I should do introduce myself to everyone. My name is Travis, this will be our first bus project. I did 6 years active duty, got out and went to school and worked for a few years doing different things. Now I'm a union electrician (apprentice) and looking forward to sharing and learning.

Our bus is an '88 Chevy with the 8.2L Detroit turd. She'll make do for now though. It's very low mileage and in excellent shape mechanically.

Just so you're aware... Indiana is the RV surplus capital of the world. You should be able to find lots of stuff to help you along. Welcome!

I did not know that actually. Very glad to know it. Any suggestions on where to start?
