You know it's cold when...
Today I spent my lunch break trying to start my schools two busses.
It was -35c or somthing like that.... Damn cold.
The music teacher needs to use the e450 7.3 diesel bus, ok, go to start it, click....
One of the teachers gets his v6 SUV and is trying to jump start it.... No go.
It begs the question why on earth that van bus has one 1000 cca battery when my bus has 3 of them and the same engine.
We deceide to use the dt466 38 foot bluebird bus with 2 1200 cca batteries to jump start it. First it needs to get moved 50 feet, let's see if it will start!
Okay, here we go.... Cha chugga chugga chugga chu.... CLICKKKKKK.
Keep in mind that the e450 had a block heater and the dt466 had two and either start!
It's just the way it is.... Don't even get me started on when we had to push the blue bird out of a snowy ski hill parking lot!
