bus heat
after thought
this heater sucks and its still in but we installed
a glo warm and heats much better

Image

Image

electral panel
to make a long story short
test the outlet you intend to plug in to to make sure the hot and common
are not crossed
i lost my automatic transfer switch do to this mistake
i dont care if it your own house all ways check to make sure
Image
120 volt plug in tester to see what its at
free from friend
Image

50 amp auto breaker
Image

i opend up the unit to see how it was wired and seen that i can snip the 6 fuse
panel and wire it in to what ever i want so i made the above panel from old stock
stuff at napa for less than 50 bucks
i made it so that i never have to disconect from the fuse block itself just the other thing

Image

Image

Image

Image

gen set Gas
sat for 10 plus years since used and fired up first try after i primed it
runs great

thats the last photo for now
well not true im up loading a few i have missed

so ill tell you some other things i have rounded up

one is i found some waste tanks about 100 gallons each still have to do figuars
but they were only 30 buck for both and are older fertilizer tanks and should work

i also got a propane tank 107 gallons off of a combine for helping cut and split wood
for a friend for 2 half days
alos for those who want to know propane is 4.11 pounds per gallon

i got my norcold fridege in the bus still havent done the vent just on elect for now

glo warm heater installed
it makes it hot in here
has any one ever set up a real wall thermastat with it
if so that would be nice

i have got a bunch of water tanks
and other whats nots for it still working on where i want to place them

i got a free concreat shower base that will work just right

ok this is what was there and now is not
when i hooked up elect via this plug i shorted out and thought that there was a mis wireing
turns out it was the main sorce being crossed hot and common
i should have checked that before i plug in

Image

Image

auto matic transefer switch broken due to bad wireing

Image

pass seat

Image

Image

Wow Joe, you are really making headway!!!

What was the insulation you used. I saw the box, but it did not give me much information.

its a radiant barrier foil

In quick this is what it does

as heat touches the out side of the bus and radiants
thru the shell and begins to heat up the bus making
it hot as hell

with the radiant barrier i create a dead air space of
2 inches plus which allows the heat to bounce back
they way it came

allowing the bus to stay cooler

this works both ways for heat and cold

so far its working in the cold and will work even more
when i finsih the ceiling, i have to wait till i finsh running
wiring thru out

http://www.atticfoil.com/
I order a 1000 square feet for 150 with the shiping

after thought, I should have put in all new floor
so that i could have put the barrier under the floor
but at the time i didnt see spending 500 or more
to get the plywood as most of the floor was in pretty good shape
