Finally got my bus registered..after having to get it weighed...and took it down to a local State campground for the weekend..It rode very smooth with only a few little glitches..One was a few times when I came off the gas, the engine sort of pulsed a few times, then smoothed out. The other problem was the light on the panal on the dash, bottom row, second from the left (orange next to red) came on occasionaly when I was on the gas, but would go off when I was cruising/not accelerating. I dont have the cover to tell me what that light is, but I believe it might be the check tranny light ?? Can anyone help ? Well Im heading back to camp. I love all the looks I get from people walking by and trying to see inside the bus..lol.

I guess the way I look at it, a couch is a couch, you can watch tv while laying on it anywhere, in a S&S, a bus or even out in the yard, but a bus should outlast us where a S&S won't.  I generally buy once and get it over with, my dad used to tell me that if you buy the best to begin with you won't be drooling over it later when someone else has it, beside I really like the way people turn and look when we roll into a campground with the big DD rumbling, another thing I like is the time we were waiting at a red light and a car full of kids pulled up beside us and a kid rolled down his window and asked if we had anyone famous inside, I told him I could get fired for telling him but we had the Swedish Bikini Team onboard, he said WOW and then we had about 6 faces trying to see into the windows of the bus as we pulled away lol.  Life is fun lol.

Hey Cody that's funny and it's true it happens to us almost every trip out but I never thought about the bikini team! I always end up saying, yea ME when asked the same question! It leaves those wondering who REALLY is in the bus as they look real hard trying to see inside and at times they will even drive along side holding up traffic!

Shania Twain was playing at TCU Place in Saskatoon a couple of years ago.  I had the bus in the city and had it parked behind a hotel on the north side of town.  I was walking away from the bus, headed over to Princess Auto, when this car kind of circled me and stopped in front of me.  The driver asked, very hesitantly, "Uh, are you, like, Shania's driver?" 

Marilyn said I should have said "NO, I'm MARILYN'S driver!!"  but I don't think that fast.

Thanks to all who tried to identify the light in question. I just spoke to Jr (aka NJT5047) and the light in question is the check engine light. He explained how to download the codes and Ill check that out this week. Thanks again..
