Ok I think its is time to start the Journal on the RedNeck Camper...
We purchased the bus for $3200 Lic/Tax/Title included from Midwest Transit in July 2012. A 98 international Crown/Carpenter It has approx 98,000 miles on it, DT466 and an AT545 auto, four wheel Disk Hyd Brakes, Cruise.
On the way home about a mile from the house lost all power but was still running turned the flashers on and limped home... I was thinking OMG what did I just get my self into? The dealer said it was an as-is condition just before we left but I called them anyway and told them the problem we had...Thinking he was going to remind me that it was an As-is purchase....But to my surprize he said i'll get a mechanic to your house in the morning. Mechanic showed up and traced out the problem, the Neutral Safety switch shorted out and fried some wires. I'm thinking again OMG this is gonna cost me big time. new harness and a switch Mechanic called the shop and they said they would have to order the parts... couple days go by and Midwest Transit called saying the parts were in and when can they have the mechanic come out to install? I asked how much was the bill so far? I was shocked when they said it was no charge its under warranty we want our customers to be happy with their new purchase... long story short we were very happy with the way Midwest transit treated us in this purchase, The bus runs great took it out after the fix to Wally World for some Road tests and it did great.
We are early in the conversion, Seats, old floor are out. I have moved the door from the front to the middle.
It is getting cold now so we are starting to work inside the bus. I wire wheeled the rust off the old floor, painted the rust with SEMs Rust converter paint, used aluminum tape on all the hole and put thin top coat of liquid roofing tar on he floor to seal up the seams just in case there are any pin holes. Tomorrow we are going to lay a piece of house wrap over the top of the tar and start on laying the 1/2 inch of pink foam board. I'll take pics or get the BFF to do a video and post.
