Re: 2 Kool 4 Skool build

Does that A/C unit have a heat strip in it? I have been thinking of installing a window A/C with heat strip to heat and cool my shuttle. What are your plans for heat?

No heat in this one. $25 CL special.

We use an electric milk house heater and or a Little Buddy. That said we are fair weather campers mostly.

Drove the bus to dinner in town last night. Drives really nice and heaters work very well!! The headlights are "adequate". I am surprised this 2000 bus has sealed beams Today it's start cutting and installing the FRP in the shower.
