Re: Mike's 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

Ran the propane line to the inside from the tank today before my daughter begged me to take her somewhere. Ran it thru the red light block off plate I made.

Hope to get some wiring and plumbing done next week.

Re: Mike's 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

Mike I have thought the same concerns but it was pointed out that the Ambulance is designed to haul high pressure oxygen cylinders in the outside compartment. And most ambos seem to mount their propane in the same location which has louvers or venting of some sort Is there more reason for concern t...

Re: Mike's 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

I was reading online about not keeping propane inside an enclosed compartment due to explosions and not on the back of a vehicle because of rear end collisions. I mounted an 11 lb cylinder on the front of the box to run a water heater and stove. Still need to do some wiring and pluming before I star...

That's a cool setup and a great use of the space.

Re: D.O.A - 89 Chevy Ambo Build

I'm hoping to be able to tow my car trailer with my ambo. Eventually I'd like to get ready rid of my high mileage Dodge Ram pickup.

Re: My 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

Went out of town, so I haven't been working on the rig. Got lots of stuff on order. Last week I ordered the license plate "JOKE" since I'm calling it the Jokebulance. I do stand up comedy and previously built a comedy club out of a prison bus called the Stand Up Bus. The ambulance will als...

I've heard the original overhead lights can be huge energy hogs. Good call to go LED.

Re: My 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

Installed the solar charge regulator, inverter, and 12v fuse blocks today. The batteries are now charging. Also got in two 15 gallon jugs that will be the freshwater and grey water tanks for my sink. Had to cut some metal to get one to go in. Looks fine with the door shut. The tall compartment is al...

Re: My 1997 GMC 3500 Ambulance

Roof vent is a subject I have been pondering wondering how to know where to cut when I get mine? Would rather not cut wires etc LOL. Fans dont come in small,med, large where a smaller one might fit between crossbars and not need to be cut? I hate the thought of cutting too since it is there for str...
