New intro

Hello. I have been using this site for awhile now for research.

I recently pulled the trigger and bought my bus. Its a 97 gmc blue bird 40 footer. Has a 366 dual fuel at545 trans. It has never been ran on fuel only propane.

The bus garage this bus came from was actual ran by a family member. Big plus I feel.

I am located in central michigan. I am planning to use it for multiple reasons.

1. Going to my art shows. I make metal yard art.
2. Just good old vacations.

3. We plan to hopefully travel a few months at a time in the future.

Glad to be here and look forward to learning and sharing as I get the experience.

Thanks. My brain is all ready mush. However I think I have my plan dialed in now. On the plus side I have a 30 foot fifth wheel I am gonna use for donor parts. Sinks shower tanks stove awning ECT. I will most likely go composting toilet and house refrigerator though.

With high-load refrigeration demands or any other high-amperage power requirements (such as a welder, since you mentioned making metal art), use a good generator. Air-conditioning, household-type appliances / accessories and any other high-amperage demands will take a battery bank down quick.

Also, get familiar with this for safety...

Thanks cheese. I don't plan to weld on the road. At least not In the near future. I will be taking finished product with me to just sell.

Maybe long term plan would be to rebuild on the road. At which time a genny will be my friend.
