This Family of 10 Almost Could not fit their New RV Fridge in their Bus Conversion!
Picking out an refrigerator can be an daunting task especially when trying to meet such specific needs. One that was a hybrid and can run off of propane, 12v and 120v. Has a freezer drawer and a large refrigerator that can hold enough food to accommodate our large and growing family. We searched, and searched and finally found exactly what we were wanting. Today, we are installing the fridge in our bus conversion. We were extremely disappointed when we realized our refrigerator was wider than the hallway the fridge was to fit down. Dad was determined to find a way to make it fit. He discovered that if he took off the refrigerator doors that it was the perfect width to fit down the hallway. Whew! That was a close one. The whole family was happy to checkout the newly installed refrigerator.

I Wasn’t Sure if Wireless Cameras Would Work on our Bus Conversion Due to the Steel Construction!
When we were looking for a backup camera system we decided to go with the wireless option because it meant not having to run as much wiring.

After the install we gave it a good test and it seems to work good.
It’s Time to Prep our Bus For Paint! Bondo Work, Sticker Removal and Sanding is Just the Beginning!

The metal surfaces must be smooth and free of any debris. Any Bondo that has been applied must be well sanded and primed before it is ready for paint. ► FOLLOW us on INSTAGRAM: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/thebuslifeshow">https://www.instagram.com/thebuslifeshow</a> ► FACEBOOK: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/goodnewsbus">https://www.facebook.com/goodnewsbus</a>
