Wow - it's been about a year. I was actually more busy than normal over this past year - a true blessing given the state of the world. The bus took a back seat, and we're now looking to move, so...

Thanks all. In an accident I'd be more concerned with the gas we're carrying and the propane we're going to be carrying (even if under the bus). I think the back door, inside, will make a nice...

Safe to store indoors?

I'm trying to find a place to mount our Chinese diesel heater's fuel tank, and would prefer to keep it indoors (it's not UV-stable and too tall to mount under the skirt). Is there any concern with...

I can't speak for other manufacturers, but on my Collins (in which the seam runs front to back), there's one rivet every 8-9 inches, which even with sealer, seems like nowhere near enough. After 15...

Wow... they left the uber-valuable factory insulation in-tact. That's also gotta be worth another $20K.

I really like the MaxxFan in that most models you can run even when raining, and you don't have a permanent big hood on the roof, lowering my max height while driving. Also, the lowest setting or...

Not bad. I taped the glass about 1/8" from the gasket with painters tape, and then just took my time running the bead of caulk along the glass-and-rubber seam. The stuff I used was very thick, and...

That's over 215,000 miles. From what I've understood about these, if they are well maintained, they can do much more than that, but if not, that's quite a lot of miles. That said, finding a...

A couple years ago we "found" a blue 20 lb. propane bottle with a 1959 date stamp on it (and the old style fittings). HD swapped it without missing a beat.
