Newby schoolie in trouble

Hi there schoolie group. Last year when my last family member passed I decided to get a school bus and convert it so about a month-and-a-half ago I bought a school bus gave myself one months to convert it and then I was traveling down south to find a new job here I am 6 weeks later halfway done I have all the parts but nothing works because I don't know how to turn it all out and plug it all together I'm in over my head and by myself and quickly hemorrhaging money if there's anybody in Illinois Central Illinois that is mechanically minded at all I could really really use some help.my main concern is trying to get my wood burning stove going and my generator going so that me and my dog don't freeze this winter & my trailer hitch mount put on, like I said I'm in over my head God bless anybody that could spare a little time to help217 235 3864 thanks Josh

Try the Skoolie Map. Shows a few other members in IL. Can maybe reach out to them through their profiles? Hope this helps...

I did see a thread on here where someone in IL is disposing of a camper with no engine or transmission, I think they said everything else is still there. Free to whoever wants it. Can't remember which thread by the time I found yours though.

Is there a vo-tech school in your area? Perhaps some of the students there could take it on as a project.

Charlie and his guys are absolutely amazing. They are not cheap, but they are very reasonable for what they do ($50/hr), and they do a phenomenal job. Not sure how much help they can lend to someone out of state, though? Can't hurt to give him a shout, though!
