This bus may be set up that way and quite likely is. We did not leave the battery charger any longer than it took to have enough umff to start it and build air to back it out of the building. I am guessing that because he shut it off as soon as he pulled it out of the building it may be possible there was still not enough power in the batteries to shift the trans into neutral when he switched the key off?

   If the house batteries it is connected to are dead, it won't come on.

My genny is in a slide out drawer so I threaded a black iron coupling fitting from Lowe's to the exhaust and disconnect it when I need to roll the drawer out.  It takes less than a minute to connect/disconnect and follows my favorite rule:  KISS.  Jack

Fwiw, bus conversions seem to be given the year of the completed conversion.  I was talking to the driver of a friends rented entertained, it was a 90s at best Prevost.  When asked driver with a straight face .told me it was a 2009. Now I'm not up on my prevos but there is no way that bus was 6 years old...paint job, couches and flooring maybe. So like someone else mentioned if your still working on it, its newer than brand new.

I was checking my bus out today as I am getting ready for my trip in eight weeks.  I noticed the generator exhaust has fallen off.  It was simply clamped around a threaded nipple.  I check it and make sure it is tight every year so I am surprised it came off.  The previous exhaust was just a piece of 1-1/4" exhaust pipe about 36" long with a bend on one end and expanded to fit over the pipe nipple.  It was held on with an exhaust clamp.  It just hung there with no hanger.

I am looking for new ideas on doing the exhaust.  My Powertech generator has an enclosure and the exhaust comes out the bottom.  (Muffler is inside enclosure.)  The exhaust port is a threaded hole 1-1/4" NPT.  I currently have a pipe nipple in there and I am having issues getting the pipe nipple to come out.  The generator rolls out on a slide, so I can't really mount to the bottom of the bus.  Thank you for any ideas in advance.

Back in 1970 we drove "Flexxies" for the Yosemite Park And Curry Company.  They all had that big V6 gas engine.  Straight 5 speed transmissions.  Four road gears, one granny.  I got to ferry one from Fresno CA to the Park.  Very slow if memory serves.   Greatly needed a gear between third and fourth.

They were cheap painted white, yellow and orange.  Wonder where they are now.

That Hall Scott Powered Crown Supercoach fire pumper created big problems on grass fires.  Seems it was better starting back fires than helping the small weed burner one ton trucks put out the grass fires.  Policy back then was NOT to drive the thing off road with dry vegetation.  Yikes!  Long ago.
