In regards to that fuse, where about is it?? I could not find it in the manual and the way I have it mounted, I'd REALLY hate to pull the whole cover. But........if I gotta, I gotta.

There is a propane version of the V10 for the Bluebird Bus. Thomas bus is using the recently brought back and redesigned 8.0L big block Chevy engine fueled on propane as well. big shift happening in the medium duty truck market away from diesel to LPG power. Next engine for our 47 Clipper will hopefully be that 8.0 l engine(hopefully on propane). the current GMC 401 v6 is 49 years old. the 8.0 is now available as an over the counter long block from GM.  Tom

You don't need to pay that kinda of money for a Marinco plug they have 4 different models only difference is the way they connect on the back the 6373-B is the most expensive it's made for salt water and cable use you connect it slide the collar tighten it makes it air and water tight .

I just bought 2 from Global Marine for under a 100 bucks with shipping fwiw Cabela's sells the Marinco for 80 bucks.

 I prefer the ones with the open back for ventilation and air circulation that is the one most RV's use as they don't use the cable from the fuse box

If it was me, I would be trying to figure out how much of the heating system the FL owner removed thinking that he wouldn't be needing. This was a major consideration in our choice. We bought a bus that was converted in MN because it still had heating equipment installed.

For what it's worth.

Holy Hell, $114 for a power cable!

How long do I really need my cable to be?

Jack beat me to it they have a relays to prevent shutdown in gear some are in the shift tower some you search for,over time the relays have gone bad and people wire around the relays creating another problem for the next owner

If it is wired like it should be, it will not stop the engine until it is put in neutral.

This is all true plus the fact that the Prevost's are not problem free by any means.I can personally testify to that.

I have been predicting for a couple of years now that we would be seeing a lot of the school systems going back to gas powered vehicles.The only thing that has kept them from doing it before ,is the fact that they think Diesel would be easier to get in case of another embargo.With that threat becoming less all the time ,there is not much reason to keep running these diesel money pits.

I have an MCI 9 and did this once. It was late night and I couldn't see that I had shut it off in Reverse. I wasted a day trying to figure out why it wouldn't start only to realize it was in gear. I didn't have to do any trickery to get it to start, just put it back in Neutral and it started right up. One of my many rookie mistakes. Craig
