Sorry, getting ready to head out to the field for a couple of weeks, so I haven't been online.
I'm planning on living in it. It still needs some work, power is good, plumbing is in place, just need to run all of the lines. Still need to work out heating sometime before it gets cold.
Before I leave for Washington, It will need some work to get it roadworthy again.
We bought a new house this winter and I had to get it moved about a mile from the old house to the new one.
I need to replace both 8D batteries. When I moved it to our new house this winter, it took 2 vehicles hooked up to jump start it.
Once started, it ran great, but didn't build up air, so I couldn't unlock the parking brake. I didn't hear any leaks until I hooked up my shop air compressor. Once I had the shop air hooked up I heard a loud leak just above the engine behind the air compressor and found an air line that had melted on the engine.
Given that I only had to move about a mile on a barely used dirt road, I taped up the line, Filled the tanks to 100 psi and had no trouble getting it home. I forgot how fun that thing is to drive.
So, I need to replace the air line and batteries, so I can start it to see if it is building air. I'll also go ahead an change the oil and check the engine over. I am hoping to throw a coat of paint on it, so at least it is not schoolbus yellow any more.
Since my wife is staying in Colorado, Finishing the rest of the conversion will at least give me something to do in Washington while I'm not at work.
