Photos of bus, I don't have editing software to reduce the size of the photos. I have just included a link to themhttp://www.palofitness.com/images/bus/sideview1.jpg

another air tank
If you start the bus from the rear controls and the bus has enough air pressure, the doors will close on you, basically locking you out of the bus.
I learned today to put the doors on manual when starting it with the rear controls.
The standard seat is pretty good when hooked up properly.
Still haven't learned to raise it or lower it.
The bus has a self kneeling feature. I left the bus and it was at normal height, I returned to it 6 and 1/2 hours later and I hear air being discharged from the front left and right side. Right behind the front tires. I don't know why.
Nothing really works on the bus until the air pressure comes up.
Most of the electrical system runs off of 24v.
The overhead lighting runs off of 110v, I was wondering why the box said warning 110vac on it.
How I don't know.
If the doors are open, the throttle doesn't work.
The bus has a lot of micro switches for safety purposes.
The speedometer and odometer are electronic.
I think I have 8 air tanks.
The only thing I have found not to work is the horn and the wheelchair lift.
I still don't know what the foot switch is for that looks like a sewing machine pedal. It is next to the steering column on the left side. I have three other switches in the area, two are for turn signals and one is for high beams.
The water tank has five fittings and I have no idea how to hook them up. One on top and four on the side. 3 of the four on the side are female and the fourth is a male fitting.
When buying a bus that the P.O. has started to convert, I learned to ask where was he going to mount the propane tank? Two furnaces and one how water heater, all hooked up and no regulator valve to be found.
I also learned to ask, why do you have two holes in the floor where the kitchen sink was suppose to be installed and how hole for where the shower was to be installed but no hole for where the toilet was to be installed. Along with no vent for the black tank and the grey and black tanks are already mounted under the bus.
I also learned to ask, why are these wires cut and what do they go to?
The dash wiring diagram and the rear engine control diagram are on the back of the panels.
This was the first day of really checking the bus over since bringing it home a week ago.
