Way too small for a bear.

I've had bears, bobcats, and coyotes in my yard and a mountain lion about 2 blocks away. I'm gonna have to figure out how to keep the out of the bus if I can figure out how to get insurance so I can go GET the bus.

Lack of PM bit me...again. Started getting a slowdown in my 12v electrics, figured (again) the batteries are on the way out. Na... Pulled all the connections and a few were loose from road vibes I guess. Re-crimped them all. Going to add another 225ah to the pack as soon as they get here.

Hope to have a bus as roadworthy and beautiful as yours someday.

OK 645ah batteries total, a new mppt controller and we have a very lively 12v system. Now a trans fluid/filter change this week and we're ready to roll.

Thank you John, yes, Mary.

Paints, draws, just about any artsy thing.

Here's an example. A common rock found on the ground becomes a treasured birthday greeting with her magic touch.

That is a beauty!

As an aside, my bride Cindi grew up in Garden Grove next door to Disneyland and when we got married she was wearing Minnie Mouse shoes.

Glad to hear you guys are on the road again !

Just changed trans fluid and ext. filter. 2 1/2 years on this fluid and it looked slightly less red. A touch of brown, no smell. 4G out, 4G in.

With the new mppt controller and over 600ah of batteries I did a test. Unplugged the solar at 100% and ran the fridge and tv for 9 hours, 74% at the end of test. Nice The new controller is much more efficient than th e old one.
