You also have to watch out for the coolant lines that run to the rear of the bus when cutting through the roof or sides. Pull trim to identify hazards and construction before cutting.
Most modern coaches have the coolant lines run throught the center of the luggage compartments. The big concern in the roof line s the A/C systems lines that have a mid seat a/c system This system is also intergraded with the rest of the A/C.
How much freon is in this unit you might ask. There is up to 30 lbs in some systems so be aware.Now throw fire into the equation and what do you have going on. A whole lot of excitment and fifty people that want off that rocket ship. Not to mention fire and freon make what type of chemical. If you are not able to find the answer then get back to me and I will enlighten you.
