BK, if you happened to live a little closer, I would have been glad to invite you along to our re-roofing party! True, its hard to turn down anything that involves beverages and buses... I see how one might easily be hooked here... hmmm...
I missed the discussion on the Roof coating/sealer, but I did notice the 5 gallon can in the picture, so I googled Black Jack and found that they make two different types..........the one you used which is a 7 year coating, and the Ultra that is a 10 year coating............what made you choose the 7 year, and It did look nice! Who told you about this product.....? The local Lowe's carry's it here and the 10 year is only $3 more on the 4.75 gallon pail!.........Do you think it will chalk?
That was OneLapper who was at Lowe's trying to make a decision. He was at the store, I was in the bus scraping the rubbery materials off of the railing to start my rust bullet. We were talking on the phone with a lousy signal, with only two options to choose from! There was no "Ultra" for us to pick, only the BlackJack and another type which was a 3-year coating.
I figure, it was painless enough to wash the roof and put it on... we'll see how it works out! I'll keep a keen eye on it, because I do spend quite a bit of time on top of my bus, especially in the nice weather sunbathing (I want to eventually have some sort of platform up there). I'll report back. The only way to know is to try.
I'll be sure to let you know!
I'm wondering what's required to convert from DDEC II to MUI - has anyone here actually done this and lived to tell the tale? For the miniscule distances I drive and ever will drive my bus, I don't care if I lose one MPG and smoke a bit more, and I can take care of looking at the gauges to safeguard the engine. In these fiscally-challenging (ahem) times, lower repair costs down the road would be worth the conversion if it didn't cost too much.
Can I bring up this point again?
Perhaps I should start a new thread about it...
