Have a look at this.  An old man I know with a 4104 was moving his bus across the yard to wash it and ran into the corner of his roof!  Needless to say, he was sick.

What a bummer. Sorry about that. I know what the feeling is like. You just feel awful.

I hope that you can get her fixed with no problems.

God bless,

John

It's not my bus.  It's someone I know.  Worst part is that the window/door post took a hit and he couldn't get the door to close.  I would imagine it's a tricky thing to fix since it's aluminum.

Oh, I see. Still is terrible one way or the other. It just makes it a tadd better.

I didn't get a good close up, but the post is actually a little twisted, so the window channel is pulled away toward the interior.   I would think a hammer and block of wood would at least get the door closed though.

That sucks, I'll bet he won't do that again! Wink

Maybe a porta power and a strong telephone pole to push against.

He is a small guy, in his 70s and kind of frail.  Personally, I think it got away from him since it has no power steering.  I am sure he would rather say he just didn't see the house, though.

Best argument I can think for a spotter-second person outside giving directions.  Good Luck, TomC
