Default Drop down lights

Yes they are behind the bumper. Had them wired up in the cellar and they are incredibly bright. Was looking online and you can get led replacement bulbs for the Hella H3 55 watt that are over 100 watts ( senile, don't remember the exact # ) for short $.
Will be interesting to see the final results on this. I do intend to rewire so that I can turn them on independently of the high beams. ( yes I know some states frown on this but I consider them to be fog lights not driving lights )

Demolition almost done, putting down engineered hardwood flooring, tearing wallpaper off and painting living area walls.

Changed out the rear AC with an larger unit with heat pump. I figured out getting the drain lines to function with the AirCommander vs the Penguin (AirCommander is taller and narrower, and about half the cost and uses less electric). Just needed some 3/8" 90 degree fittings to go into the drains on the unit, some hose, and push fitting for the roof drains. I'll make a new post on it when I'm done with some part numbers.

Talking Wish I had this on video! By Beth


This may be funnier if you could see me act it out- but here goes!

Because of changes to David’s job, he’s been working like crazy with not much time to work on our bird or even take her for a drive. So on Sunday he said “Hey!! Let’s go for a nice long drive”!! WoooooWhooo!

David goes outside and pulls off the wheel covers, does all his checklist things, turns her on and starts the generator to get the ac going since it’s 100° out. Moves her out of the backyard up to front and finally comes inside to tell me she’s ready! I’m sooo excited, rush out the door, get in my seat and am ready to roll!! The AC is blowing hard, working real nice, cool air that feels so good. He sits down, gets his seat right, pushes the buttons and NOTHING happens. He looks at me in dismay “OMG she’s not going in gear” .... he starts pushing all the buttons (that’s how I see it but he knows what he’s doing ) he tries again to put her in drive but she won’t budge. Nothing. He looks at me like a very worried little boy with looks of $$$ signs in his eyes and huge problems ahead.

I say “OH David! Come on! It’s something simple of course!! Are the stairs up”? (Sadly I don’t have clue about mechanics) so he gets up and goes check the steps, nope- they are still out. He pushes buttons at the doorway but nothing is happening. Anywhere.
He paces up and down the bus, rubbing his forehead, mechanical disasters invading his brain. I, on the other hand, am cool and calm and say for the 5th time “David, for sure it’s something so simple, stop worrying! You just drove it up to the front yard”!! He sits back down in the drivers seat, looking at the dash, checking everything.

He looks at me again in disbelief that our bird is broken.....

I then say “David, is the bus even turned on”?

He looks back at dash... If you could have seen his face. Priceless.
“No, it isn’t. That would help”.

He then starts the bus and we go for a 2 hour drive.
That’s what we did to our bus today.

How much of the fluid film did it take to do you bird? Spray can or brush on?
