Great to "hear" a NICE neighbor story once in a while.

Scott, those block stacks supporting the bus do not look stable. The one on the driver side looks like it's leaning. With the weight reduced on the drive wheels, the wheel chocks might not keep the bus from sliding back.  ::)

The bus wasn’t aired down so the levelers were just sitting there leaning over. It’s solid as a rock now. My brakes are applied too and air system drained. Been there done that.

That's good, I would really not like to hear that the bus squashed Heather.  :o

Lol. You guys are nuts. We don’t clean the bum bum of the bus. Just ain’t worth it for us. It’ll never rust and it’ll never stay clean.

When ours is on the pit we clean up the rear & bottom a bit. It always help to remove gravel from loose roads...

It is harder to set fire to the engine room, if there is no build up of greasy stuff.

A rough going over periodically is good maintenance.

No toothbrushes or polish needed, unless you have time and OCD...?

He has about 700 to 1000 miles now I think if they leak they leak out of the gate and air box drains leak on first start up,I don't mind tuff crowds the pipes are coated with prime and painted he has no leaks and boost is 22 lbs ,anyways if it does leak I will repair the leak Dan for free
