Hey Johnny, I found you by looking for the service manual for the bus I just bought. You shared a link to someone in a forum thread, but that link to your Dropbox account doesn't work anymore because it says that file "has been deleted." If you would be so kind, can I have a link to that manual? Or any bus very similar to mine. I have an International 3800 with the DT466E engine, air brakes, AT545 transmission, and a 1998 Blue Bird dognose body. This would be extremely helpful to me. Thanks for your time. Please let me know and you can share a link with me by any means you want. Thanks.
My awning is a 16' x 8' white tarp I found on Amazon. I attached two permanent hooks on the top sides of my roof so the ends of the tarp can hook to. I then use magnetic hooks down the middle. Two 6' tent poles and some good stakes and it good to go!
Hey Johnny, been enjoying you posts and videos both here and on YouTube great job. I am stuck in the snow in northern OH also. With all this snowed in time, it has me thinking sun, well, actually shade. After spending too much time searching boards for awning tips, I thinking simple is better. Do you have any pic of yours awning setup? More so, how did you mount it to the bus, pull it tight and what did you use as a material? How big is too big? Your look about the right size.

Hey, I'm on the hunt for other folks running my same platform. I've just gotten started gutting a 1999 t444e 3800. I just figured I'd drop you a line in case we ever might want to trade notes/experiences on engine, or whatever. I had a look at your bus tour video on youtube. Liked and subscribed. You've got a nice build!
Hello Mr Mullet. My name is Kevin. 55yrs old in Kansas City Mo. Watched you on YouTube/subscribed. Hey I just joined the forum. I am a former ford dealership tech. Former semi-truck driver. Your videos have been an inspiration to me. I am purchasing a 2004 international DT444e it has 147,000 on it. Anyways just wanted to say hi. Hope to use your videos to bullet proof and maintain my bus. Your conversion is very nice and I love how you did it in a cost effective way.
