Removing ThermoKing AC by Jeff
Post New Message After debating back and forth about a dozen times, I am leaning towards removing the ThermoKing bus air from my 1990 Neoplan AN440 transit bus. It will be used primarily as a tailgating lounge at Texans football games, so the bus air would serve minimal purpose anyway. My plan is to install 3-4 roof airs and run off a diesel generator. There is only about 16-18" of clearance under the bus which presents a challenge in installing a large genset. I have considered locating the generator engine in the rear stairwell (modified of course) with the generator head extending under the coach. By removing the ThermoKing bus air, however, and ideal perfectly sized space is opened up in the rear for the new genset. Before I go ripping it out, does anyone know if there are any special considerations or 'gotcha's' that I should be concerned with electrically or mechanically which might have an impact on other bus functions? IE - interconnected circuits or shared mechanical resources? I wouldn't want to take it out and find out unpleasantly that I had inadvertantly mucked something up. The compressor is run off the Allison V731 PTO. Thanks!
