Got a whole bunch of small parts to get some of the projects I'm working on finished. Objective is to finish the sub-floor before the really cold weather gets here in Kansas. I still have an oil change in wife's van to do as well.... The list NEVER stops growing!!!!!

I thought this thread was supposed to be about Christmas decorations on our buses? My vinyle window stickers seem kind of weak.

I could list something for the bus just about every month. I might buy the bus another ham.

^^ The bus gets whatever she needs.

Christmas/New years will be propane related appliances. A water heater and a dickenson marine P12000 furnace will likely be coming down the chimney this year.

Sure, more options. I'd sure like to see a side by side comparison with this stove and a Webasto inside of a meat locker. I know the Webasto is noisy. That's the main complaint. I don't care for carrying several different types of fuel around either, so a diesel heater of some sort makes sense. It would make sense to have an extra fuel tank too.

I dunno, but the colder it gets...the more I am interested in heaters.

Yeah, this late in the season I'm not very interested in making a heater either.

You want a diesel heater AND an extra tank for it? I don't get it. Do you just want more tankage onboard for a greater range, or more precise mpg numbers, or.....? Seems to me that one of the major advantages of the Webasto is that it doesn't need a dedicated fuel tank.

I don't like to go into town very often. Currently there is nothing sipping my diesel while I'm parked.

I don't have any waste tanks under this bus. I would like to hang another fuel tank, yes to extend my range as well as not having to worry about a diesel heater sipping away at my main fuel tank.

An extra fuel tank just seems like a good idea.

Most of you have a space problem under your skirts. You can only say that phrase to bus people.

My bus is quite light weight with this simple design. An additional fuel tank would help with the weight issue and give me extended range, or for boondocking without the fear of running out of fuel.

Or, this bus could be yours for a mere $300,000.
