How many of you all run around with toolboxes working on bus problems. You guys are the wealth of knowledge and could  make a small fortune off of just me. Just asking and thanks for all the insights and problem solving.

That's why were called Bus-Nuts...

Really though we all try our best to help others because we know that some day we may need help.. As much as we would like to "Know It All" we can't (although some seem to come very close) We share our knowledge and experiences here knowing that we can also ask questions in return...

I have lots of tools and no fear to take anything apart that I'm curious to about.
Most of the time I can fix the problem, sometimes I just have to replace it...

On top of a complet set of wrenches, you should carry a couple of 18" adjustable wrenches-good for taking the big hydraulic lines off if needed.  For instance, on my bus, it is easier to physically take the complete transmission filter off the bus when changing then try to change it on the bus-and that means loosening the two giant hydraulic lines (like 1 1/2?) and retightening them.  You always want to use two wrenches so you can take the strain off the fitting with one while tightening the hose with the other.  Good Luck, TomC

I got enough problems keeping my coach in tip-top shape. But if an owner really needs help and is willing to get just as dirty as I am he is welcome to park over my pit where we will both work on the problem. I don't work on problems that were self inflicted.
