My wife and I were walking the historic district in downtown Savannah, GA today and we came around a corner and saw the Peacemaker II bus parked on the corner. What a treat. I got a pic of it but cant figure out how to dumb the mg's down low enough to post. With only two built, what are the odds a busnut stumbles on one 3000 miles from home. Wow. Totally cool treat today.
We returned from MYB today and passed Peacemaker II headed east at mm 14 on I-26.Wonder if they got tired of all the California crap and moved east .Sure seems to be a lot of sightings lately.

We used it to fuel our 12 kw Kohler diesel generator. When it developed a leak, we had a  metal fabrication shop a replacement. They eliminated the 1inch recesses on the ends which provided another three gallons. We also had an aux. fuel pump to transfer fuel to the main tank if it got low.

I am guessing that the 24/12v voltage regulator in your RTS quit working?.  That is what you needed-- a replacement regulator.  Or be like me-- dump the 300 amp gear driven alternator and use the V730 PTO drive to run separate 12v and 24v alternators.  I have no use for 24v except for the starter, driver's heater motor, and a few 24v relays.  My inverter is 12v with four golf cart batteries to run the RV house systems.

Thanks guys.  I'll take another look on the Prevost site.  Have to say, Prevost is very helpful on the phone. But, I had to walk a Prevost tech through his diagnostic logic after they spent 13 labor hours trying to find the cause of no air to the rear air bags.  I told them it was the 5 way Norgren valve before they started working on it.  In the end I was right and they credited off the wasted hours.

Yes, we use the 25 gallon aux. Tank for the gen set. Works great... There
 is a shut off valve on the outlet line hidden up inside the wheel well. Never used it but there's one there.

I do think the 45mph restriction is strange but it's a federal regulation. Most schoolbusses are governed to 55. I've had 70 out of mine, downhill but it's governed to 55.

Meritor on mine. I think you will find them intertwined.   Meritor has a good web site.

I believe it it is a Rockwell. Prevost has all its shop manuals on line along with the manuals for major components supplied by vendors. Their parts guys are also very helpful and can give you trade numbers if needed.

Who manufactured the axle?  I need a pair of axle gaskets but the local Fleetpride cant cross the Prevost part number or make sense of the axle assembly number. 

Thanks,
Mark

Anyone use the  gas tank that was mounted for the original ac gas engine in the 4104 as a gas tank for the generator? I think its suppose to be around a 25 gallon tank. I was able to drain some old fuel out of the original fuel line and it I don't think it has any leaks.I would be using it for an old Onan 4k generator that has a fuel pump. Thanks
