As others have pointed out, drawing the air from outside is an issue.  Any force air heater only has the capacity to raise the temperature of the intake air by a limited number of degrees.  Just suppose that your heater can discharge air that is 40 degrees hotter than the intake air (this figure is just for example sake).  If the intake air was 20 degrees, the discharge would be only 60 degrees.  Now if the the intake air comes from the interior space, it is gradually heated up, so when it reaches 30 degrees the discharge will be 70 degrees.  When it reaches 40 degrees, the discharge will be 80 degrees, etc.  Therefore your heater will gradually bring the inside temp up to your thermostat set point of say 70 degrees and shut off.  If you are only processing cold outside air, your heater, depending on capacity, may never be able to reach the temp you want.

There are a number of reasons a cold air return pulls the air from the heated space, one is heating pre-heated air, and the second is not allowing the heated space to become pressurized and resist intake of heated air, plus the heated air needs to be encouraged to circulate inside the space.  16K is well on the small side for a bus, 30K to 40K is more appropriate.  A small wheel-chair battery won't run a furnace long, they are real current hogs when the fan is on.

Driving this weekend from Ft. Worth to Tucson and seeing interesting buses. Passed a Silver Eagle driving down the road the opposite direction. Spotted a Silver Eagle frame on the side of the road in Chillicothe. Frame only. Literally. No engine, no tranny, no windows, no siding. Just a frame sitting on wheels. And just now, this bus drove by:

A customer bought two of the military 8V92TA's with Jakes.  They were low milage rebuilt engines from military trucks.  500HP.  I installed the engines for him into a couple of drill rigs, and had to remove the Jakes for clearance, plus you don't need Jakes on a drill rig.  A couple of things on this deal, the Jakes were 24v but were the newer design with a fast idle that worked off the high/low speed governor screw adjuster so you could install the micro-switch in the buffer screw hole.

I kept one set to put in my 24/12v RTS 6V92TA, and offered the other set on the Board's stuff for sale at $800 or best offer.  This included the Jake Valve covers and was a complete set.  I got no offers and the Jakes have been sitting in the customers shed for 6 months so I would have to inventory the parts to see if anything has gone missing.

It may work but you won't like it when the fresh air being heated and fed into the rv picks up some sort of odd smell near by and pumps it into your rv. Stray diesel fumes, gas fumes from cars and who nose what other fume/smell it may pick up when the wind blows. Attempting to heat air that may be 20 to 30 degrees with 16k will only give you marginal heat.
