Re: Removing Decals and logos on ambo sides

Yes, while eraser wheels are the way, but difficult and tiring on a regular drill. Get a drill handle to help control the wheel, which takes some pressure. And get more wheels than you think you need.
This is not easy!
Other than painting the module, you might consider wrapping it.

New batts: Cross-wired or Parasitic drain?

New DUAL batteries (Group 78 Interstate from Costco) are arcing like a welder when trying to install— even with the power isolator Off, Master Off, doors closed, etc. I’m confused: either I’ve somehow crossed the battery cables, or I have a truly *monstrous parasitic drain. The cables are only long ...

Re: Post your Boondocks rescue "Toy"??? (Bikes, ATV's, UTV's...)

Never heard of such a creature: diesel bike. Yes, ONE fuel seems the best solution. If it works.... At 400+cc, its bound to have power at higher rpms (what's the hp rating?), but how does it perform at lower rpms? (I haven't watched the video) Is this *only a DIY fab thing, or are there stock diesel...

Re: Exterior roof access folding steps?

Yeah, order for inside door-- don't want galvo exposed to weather. They'd be *super for rooftop handholds, tho!
Don't want a blind leap to get on/off.

Re: Ceiling fans - Maxx Fan or Fan-Tastic

Fantastic Fan is wildly overrated IMHO: cannot run it in rain, or when moving. Maxx fan seems better at same cost.
Consider a reversible power-vented hatch.

Most ambus have exhausts, but they're inadequate for cooling: [mostly to remove noxious smells(!)]

Re: Roof Rack options: buy, build, or modify?

I'd sure want to avoid any quick turns at-speed, as 3-400 lbs is alot to play with. Esp if tank is without baffles, its gonna go where *it wants to go, and might ruin my day.

Decommissioning shorts

BE ADVISED: When ambus are decommissioned, they are often stripped of electronic gear: radios, siren, P/A, suction, etc. This is usu very crudely done, cutting wires & often leaving wire-ends exposed . Since some circuits are constantly hot (e.g., a clock-- needs juice even when the overall cuto...
