Battery Question
Hello All,
I Just bought a 2003 ford Collins E350 Super Duty Short Bus

I'm about to beggin the process of coversion.
I feel I've just got myself involved in quite the project.

My main question is about batteries. They are almost dead after just 2 days of sitting.
Someone mentioned a witch to turn off current from the batteries to bus. They mentioned it should be near the batteries that are on side of the bus. I've looked so far and no luck.

I have construction expirence yet electronics have never been a strong point for myself.

Also any tips on finding owner Manuela?

Many thanks and Enjoy your day

I have a 99 E450 and mine doesn't have a cut off switch. It has 2 batteries for starting and they also powered the wheel chair lift that I have now sold.

were you using the bus a lot in the past two days before they're almost dead?

my batteries died pretty quickly and the alternator wasn't working.
