Hello! Long time peruse-er, first time poster. My wife, 1yr old daughter Ocean, and I just recently purchased our Skoolie. It is certainly in need of some simple TLC; however, it is in great condition overall, in my opinion. It had the seats removed prior or to my purchasing and taken down to the sub floor. Oh, did I mention it has not only a back door (since itís the FE style, with the engine in the front) and a side door?! Prior to us purchasing this 26í long beast, it was used as a crawfish 🦞 truck-on-wheels! Yes, thatís correct, folks ...a crawfish truck. Living in Galveston, TX certainly has its perks, per se. Anyways, we look forward to delving deeper and getting to know each of you over the next following years.

P.S. were in need of a manual (with wiring diagrams) for the 92í 26 foot TC2000

P.S.S. anyone know of quad-scale (4 corner) weigh stations near Galveston/Houston???

Very cool, I'm up in Kemah. Nice bus. But with the 12v 5.9 in a non-school bus, you won't have much wiring to deal with anyways! Especially if you don't have an AC.

Nice find!


curious George asks:
what is the screen-looking thing behind the battery box, just in front of the rear tire?
and:
is that a back deck?

honestly, not quite sure, yet... first things first are mechanical, then we will begin demo and finding out what is what. perhaps a spot for the wiring cabinet (since the switch panel is on the other side)? giving outside access would have given access to all the wires. yet, im unsure why add the bevel to it? maybe a last minute decision or they had planned to put a door there. upgrade feature?

if anyone has any clue, let me know! I have seen it on a few buses similar to mine. we would love to know!

I just to happened to have seen a white bluebird (early 90s model) in League City the other day at the Home Depot. I waited for someone to come out to ask them questions, but after 30 minutes I grew bored and was planning on starting work on the bus. Little did I know, I hadn't brought any of my drills or impacts (which also have the bits). I just had this handy dandy propane torch. Thus, I postponed work for another day.

I have found where they hold many manuals and such for these busses; however, they do not have the 92! :'( Perhaps someone had downloaded and has an extra copy?
