Hi,
Got the bus out for my first winter camp.(if there is a thing like that in CA.)
Bus ran great then I turned the key there was a delay then she fired up?
Then was running O.K. Then kinda died then was O.K. again.
I have read many things here about earth leads,could it be this? Or something else? Did a 100 mile run today with no problem.
I want to cure it before I get stuck in the boonies.
Any help would be great.
Thanks for your time. Exclamation

kind of sounds to me like it could be an ignition switch. common failure point, very low cost item and easy to replace. use the search to find out how, or hit up the great tutorial at http://www.benplace.com/dash.htm.
