Hey there fellow Skoolie enthusiasts!
So I just acquired a 1997 Thomas School Bus, The seats have been removed, and I am working this weekend to get the vinyl floor off and the wall panels/ceiling panels removed.
The next logical step seems to be insulating, framing and wiring.
I am trying to figure out what would be the best possible solution for electricity. My wife (and four boys) are planning on moving into this thing in the fall...but I need to figure out how to do the electric. I need to run a fridge, and since we are moving to the southeast from Orange County CA, I'd also like to install one or two roof mounted AC units (is this advisable?), also a fridge, hot water heater and charging electronics like cell phones etc.
From what I have read, it seems like doing a solar system that could power this would be costly...does anyone have any recommendations or could someone point me to a thread that could help with figuring this stuff out?
Any help would be majorly appreciated!
