the bus is at my house

unlike some, my trip home (260 miles) was just boring, bus has a top speed of about 63, has almost new tires, was in service last year, has so much heat you could use it as an oven to bake bread, I only had 2 of the 5 heaters turned on low speed for the trip home

Blue Bird

Nice looking acquisition. Is that a Bluebird parked behind it? If it is a Bluebird is the 120 volt wiring solid or stranded wire. Inquiring minds want to know. If it is solid have you had any trouble with fractured wires from
excess vibration? I'm in Seattle and we visited Cincinnati once and couldn't
stand the rain and the humidity which says a lot in that Seattle only has two types of weather (rain or chance of rain). It just doesn't come down in buckets and barrels.

The 120 volt wiring is standard romex style house wiring with a standard house circuit breaker box, as far as I know, nothing has broken but I personally have not tested all the 120 volt stuff myself, just the 3 AC units, only one of which works, one just blows air, the third does nothing. I was told when I bought it that the refrigerator, ice maker and water heater all work but never tested them myself
