Bus is out of the shop & Skoolie Neighbor

Yes the bus is back in action and while we were absent from the storage area a new skoolie friend had started working on his bus. So I ended up going to Trans Chicago to have the bus fixed. Originally I had no idea that it was a Freightliner dealer and when I found out thought that was a good thing. I was under the impression that we were on a Freightliner chassis but apparently its an international??? Go figure because  Freightliner bought Thomas Built Busses in like 98 or 99….. So i don’t understand why it would be an International Chassis but that’s what they said anyway.   None the less they were able to bypass the school bus stuff and get the bus back in action for the low low price of $1,047.91 unfortunately a great deal more than the tow.

Well it is in fact true! Our bus does not currently start. But no worries I have wiring diagrams now from Thomas. I think I know what the issues are and you will have to watch another video for the answers. As I write this I have not fixed the bus so that will be one of the next videos!
