Hi All!

To answer a few of the questions....

1.  I bought the bus in Saint Cloud, MN.
2.  How much did I pay? You can find out here.
3.  Does stopping at the Mall of America count as a Minnesota rally?
4.  John - I was hoping to find a nearby busnut.  I have lived in FWB over 40 years and have been to/through Laurel Hill hundreds of times. 
5.   Arcadia sounds like a busnut Mecca - count me in!  Might be a good time to conduct a Xantrex install "how to."  I will buy the Xantrex if anyone wants to demonstrate the "how to"  Grin
6. The person I bought the bus from, Matt, told me about the tag axle trick.  He said it also comes in handy if you are on soft/slippery ground and need to direct more weight/traction to the drive tires.  I have not tried pulling the tag axle up yet though.
7. I am in the panhandle of Florida - directly between Pensacola and Panama City, and about 30 minutes south of Interstate 10.

Nice looking bus. I think you did very well at that price.

Interesting. 30 miles away from me, and I never met the guy. I suspect he didn't haunt the boards. Too bad. Looks like he had a lot I could have learned.

Welcome to the madness,  nice looking bus!!!!


Kyles non-rally in October would not be a bad ride for you. Maybe we'll see you there.

Xantrex has pretty good manuals,

reccomend one like the 4024 that does everything for you Smiley

read up and ask away on the questions

your hooked.

Brian,
   The "how to" seminar might be a possibility.  We may be in the FWB area in November as we make our way back home.  I will let you know.  Jack

I started a couple of months before you and all I can say is wow.  Your bus looks great.  I'm envious of the all your storage.
