    4WD factory built school bus Kalispel. Cat 2016, Allison 2000, 32’ with Diesel heater.

    A must for anyone wanting to do the YouTube/Instagram thing. Imagine combining Schoolie, Overlanding and Vanlife. [emoji1] But seriously to find the 4WD parts under this price would be near impossible...

    MBE926 question on oil pans

    I am in the midst of converting my Freightliner with the OM926 into 4WD. But the position and depth of the oil pan is going to cause issues. My pan is obviously designed to allow clearance for the drop axle and it has a large belly at the front of the engine. The edge of this belly is will...

    PEX Sharkbite push on fittings or crimp

    My base hot and cold water system is only going to need a dozen or less connections. And I have the PEX plus crimpers and horsetail type fittings. But where I have to make some of the joins I will need to do some pole dancer type gyrations to get a good angle on them. So what is the collective...

    I replaced the rubber accordion boot between the cab and the box last week. Fitting it was fairly easy but I haven't yet actually glued the overlap together yet. Looking to the forum for some collective wisdom on what product would be most suitable. And just for information the best place I...

    Hammock inside an ambulance?? Can anyone school a complete hammock noobie

    First of all a confession. Apart from a couple of disastrous drunken escapades I have absolutely no experience with hammocks. Inside our converted ambulances we always install a nice comfortable sleeper sofa. This work great for the 2 of us. But now I am in the middle of converting another one...

    Ambulance recovery. Bought without any details and then road trip across the country.

    This is just to provide some background on purchasing vehicles sight unseen on the other side of the country and how I go about getting them. I live in Phoenix and it seems like all the medium duty ambulances are on the east coast. So for the 3rd time I find myself buying a truck 2000 + miles...

    Mini split AC. Can the condenser be run on its side?

    I am looking to install a couple of mini split systems in the new truck. But real estate being as valuable as it is I would like to lay the condensers at an angle on the cab roof. I will be ruggedizing the components to minimize vibration based problems it's more the gas flow issues I am...

    Military decontamination units. scepter style cans with mounting and fittings etc.

    I figured these would be great for a portable shower but since we are going to have a built in shower in our Freightliner they may as well go to someone who will use them. Looks like they will hold about 3 gallons and have an area for tool/pump and hose storage. Not sure if all the original...

    Ambulance medium duty. The airconditioner secret. How does it work?????????

    Anybody know the secret between the front and back AC setting to actually get them to work. OK I have not had any AC in my truck for 3 years. Not really a problem until the summer in Phoenix but I am usually OK with 2-60 AC in the most part (2 windows down and 60 MPH). But I am getting old and...
