Greetings from East TN!

Hey all!
Newer skoolie owner here! I bought a 29 foot '99 International t444e 3800 in April of '21 and have been slowly working on it since bringing it home.

I work full time as well, so I've been occasionally lurking the forums since then, specifically when ever I wanted a little bit of guidance or inspiration. For the most part the work has been going smoothly, I've gotten the original flooring, insulation, ceiling panels, and some of the unnecessary wiring (I.E. Flashers and etc) removed.

Plus, the floor has been treated and painted to combat rust. Basically I've gotten my bus to the point of my next step, which ideally would be a roof raise. Catherine(my bus) was an old handicap bus, which I found exciting for the lack of wheel wells to build around, and an extra door option for the design. But it means insulating the floor and ceiling is going to eat up all of my standing head room. (I'm 5'11") and I plan living in it full time for a bit once she's all built out.

Yet, I've reached a point in my build where I could use some interactive guidance and advice. The bus needs to move before I can raise the roof (tools needed and a more level parking place are at a friends), and it's not wanting to start. She'll turn over just fine, just refuses to start.

The last time I drove it was in July/August. When I moved to my current house. Due to life, I ending up letting the bus sit too long, killing my batteries. I think I got one last jumped start(and long idle) from them, roughly 2.5 weeks after my last drive.

Long story long, I have since replaced all three batteries, ordered a ScanD, and also checked my flash codes, as I have a warn engine light when key is on.

I'm getting: 152 LOW BARO, 124 LOW ICP, 122 LOW MAP, 211 LOW EPOP.

I for the life of me cannot find the Barometer sensor to test its connections..(have yet to test the MAP or ICP as I was focusing on finding the BARO)

But, on the EPOP front my oil level is fine, is the lack of pressure due to sitting to long? Or is it a possible issue tied to the ICP?

Anyways, glad to be taking another step towards joining the skoolie community and thankful for any help or guidance that comes my way.

Cheers Y'all
