Who here has a bus? I'm still working on converting mine and have run into some mechanical problems. I plan to use it as a stationary cabin once I find some land. Building a skoolie has taught me so much about what I don't know but hopefully have enugh confidence to build a cabin once I buy land.

Hi Gail! I don't have much mechanical experience, yet.

Would you be able to post some pictures, a video, or a description of the problem? Because I think that might help some people be able to figure out what the issue is.

I found a few resources that may be helpful:
Diagnose Car Problems: this is a question program that tries to determine your problem based on how you answer
Another Car Diagnostic program
A Troubleshooting Guide
Auto Repair Basics by the Federal trade Commission
A Basic Guide for Identifying issues

I am working on my third bus.

What sort of issues are you having?

I live in a skoolie but didn't build it out myself. Skoolie.net is prob a better resource for this specific problem. Hope you found it, and trusting you did
