The bus won't break in the driveway...
Well, mine did. Tried again to get it aired up and it still stuck at 30psi. It is so low to the ground hard to tell where it is coming from. Going to use the portable compressor to get a better idea of the source. With the engine running, hard to tell sometimes if it is even from the front or rear. Hoping it's not passing gas on both ends. Nobody likes that feeling. LOL

Listening to a 6-71 or a 8v71 droning up a long grade sounds better than the guitar intro in Stairway to Heaven! The smell of straight weight 40 delo leaking just adds to the pleasure. Kinda like the smell of pot at a stones concert at selland arena in the 1970's.

We use a light blocking (white) traditional roll down shade to provide captured air between the windshield and the open interior.  This helps keep the heat in in the winter and the hot out in the summer.  All the rest of the bus windows are dual glazed and have the same roll down shade treatment.  As an aside, the roll down shade on the windshield meets the visor requirement here in Kalifornia.

I sewed up a snap in partition to separate the driving compartment from the living quarters.  This is used mainly while driving in the summer so the dash air doesn't have to try to cool the entire bus while traveling.  When it is very cold the partition can be used to block off the driving area and its heat loss--though there is a loss of interior living space if I do that.  Jack

If CARB does come after the 2 strokes in RV's people that have CA plates maybe the most lucky bus nuts around.LOL CARB spent millions of tax payers dollars changing engines for Greyhound.

DaveC now you need the emission sticker for the year of the engine to register a bus in CA that came about 2 years ago

DEF something I mix with roundup to make it work better. On the weeds around my bus of course.

Well now you have me thinking about goose down window coverings. Hmmm. That front windshield is a real heat loss event.

My buddy with a big class A showed me drone shots of attending the big FMCA gathering in Georgia this summer. I saw 4 older buses. Not sure they hear us anymore. Plethora of 5th wheels and a huge number of newer Class A rigs that perhaps comply with California - made up the majority.
I have to wonder how long a California fire fighter can cut fire line with a battery operated chainsaw? My neighbors Ryobi leaf blower lasts about 8 minutes on one battery and can maybe blow out candles. Changing times but still headed for Florida next week and happy about it. Just focusing on the positives. Like the word DEF still means: hard of hearing
lol

Just the usual stuff I guess.  Well, I do have a snap in goose down comforter that matches the contours of my pop up roof.  Since we don't heat at night it gets pretty cold in the winter and the comforter makes a ten degree difference.  When not in use the comforter stuffs into half a pillow case for storage.  Jack

Okay, I just sent an email to FMCA asking what they are doing to help us. If I get a response I will post it.
