Re: Pros and Cons

Another pro vote. With a 7.3 I’ve had very reasonable maintenance costs over the 5 years we’ve owned it. Economy is comparable to a pickup even though its 9k+ lbs.

I’d not touch a 6.0... if anything breaks it’d break the bank.

Re: Medium Duty Pros/Cons..care to share?

These 12/24v look like a great option if you’ve got enough Realestate for 1200+ watts of solar. I’d not want to run them off batteries for long, but once the sun goes down, so would the cooling requirements.

Re: Picking the right Ambulance..Advice needed

Overall they are built like tanks. However, Some are built better than others. Crestline are built by paramedics for paramedics. Many others are well built.

Evaluate what you need and shop for the rig that’ll meet them.

Re: Peep Holes

Definitely a good idea. I’d not want to be opening a door and stepping out without knowing what’s on the other side. I’ve had instances where for safety I needed to know what’s behind the door.

Re: new (to me) Vanner charger/inverter

I’d be all over it for $150 (after shipping) especially if it’s a sine wave inverter. The old marine charger I bought (similar in function to the 20A) was an additional $40 on top of the $400. Edit: per http://www.vanner.com/manuals/postproduction/20-1050CUL-OMA96283-Rev-A.pdf It’s a modified sine w...

Re: new (to me) Vanner charger/inverter

20 amp changer. Very basic and nothing special

1050 w.

My Simplex 2000 watt pure Sine wave was only about $400 CDN new. So I’d want a really good price on the Vanier

Re: Surveilance Cameras Security System

I’ve got an RVS bAckup camera and the resolution is excellent. As for vehicle safes, the Tuffy Security Products console I have in my 40 is excellent. It’s weather proof and very secure. They’ll stand up to much prying and abuse and still won’t open. For an Ambulance, a small household safe hidden i...

Re: Crestline Manual for my rig, worth $50?

Which year of Crestline? Someone emailed me a ‘01ish manual. I’ve not needed a manual for anything ‘Ambulance’ yet. Mine is a ‘97 with relays and wires that are easy to follow.

More helpful would be a Ford manual for most stuff.
