Holy old coach batman we did it!

So we bought a coach conversion! a 1966 MCI

It doesn't need anything really, I would like to insulate the bays so that we can use it in the winter and I need to buy a battery charger, the house batteries charge when the bus is running but won't charge when the generator is running unless there is a battery charger plugged in and hooked up. Any recommendations?? Is there something that will be an inverter as well? I also want to upgrade the 12 volt lighting system to LED and would love a wood stove as I think we will need to run the diesel generator while we sleep if we aren't plugged in. it has propane heat but that needs to draw from the 12v to keep running.

Pictures to follow!

Congrats! POST SOME PICS!

I LOVE the classic MCI's.

Does it have 12v or 24v?

Nice!!!!
Power Tech are good stuff. I used to make parts for them, they're right down the street from my old job.
I'm jealous of the Jake!

She's a BEAUTY!

The old coaches have such class... They sure don't build em like they used to.
I was already jealous of the Power Tech and Jake, now I see you have indoor storage!!!
