12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

Jim

This is shake rattle & roll. Had to get a new computer. I would appreciate anything you can send me about the heating system. I have a boiler system in my house. I have extra burners for a hot water tank and a furnace and should be able make one out of those. I also plan on putting the electric heaters in under the cabinets. I have heat strips in my 3 duotherm air conditioners now and I'm going to update them to heat pumps 15000 BTU. Thank you for your help. My email address is chunt8@rochester.rr.com

Dan The duct work must be from the work done by the converter. What is it hooked to? If it is to roof airs some say it makes them quieter I am not convinced that is true. If it is some sort of basement air be careful you don't disrupt the air flow and will not be able to cool your bus. I don't know about the history of your bus but there are others on the board that will chime in.

shake rattle & roll wroteCOLONWe are changing the Eagle into a more comfortable motorcoach. When we retire we are selling everything and becoming "full timers". The project should take about 3 years. We have read alot of the information on your site which is giving us great ideas. Any input will be appreciated. We look forward to meeting other members and attending some rallies in the future.
The motor is an 8-v92 with 740 Allison 45 footer
We wil be checking your site often as we embark on this adventure.
Thanks everyone,
