For the sacrificial anodes to work they need to be submerged so as to complete the cathodic circuit.

The guy I bought mine from had one more just like it (as of about a week ago). Could probably pick it up for 2200 or so. But youd have to fly to Omaha or Lincoln NE to get it. It is a bit older but for the 8.3 its worth it. Mine will cruise 70 uphill, 75 on flat ground. Will have to deal with some rust, as its a Nebraska bus.

If I had a place to park it, I would consider it. Tho I would prefer a NM, AZ, TX bus but who wouldn't?

bus conversion cost

Drive out price was $3200 but that was with 6 brand new tires mounted on new wheels. I had to buy a blinker assembly to make it legal. So far I've spent about $1600.00 installing shower, framework for cabinetry, sinks, plywood & insulation for flooring. Gallery Furniture, in Houston, is making the mattresses for our bedding as I am building all the cabinetry for the bus. ( I am a professional cabinet maker and a licensed electrician) so all my cabinetry and electrical should not cost me much at all. (except for the inverter, inverter generator A/C......... HAHAHAHAHAHA !! I'm figuring another $8 grand or so. I am making headway as we speak...... Life just seems to keep getting in the way.
