Hey gang,
As you can see I'm a new member here. Found the forum by researching Food Truck Build outs and ran into reese's Sammich lab.  I just purchase my truck last weekend  off a retiring couple and got a sweet deal on it. Just needs some sprucing up and my personality on it.  
 
First things first drop it off to my buddy's shop to get a tune and all the fluids flush and changed and install air lift suspension.
I'm looking to purchase will be a 6500w generator since it didn't come with one.Every one says Generac is one of the best besides Honda.
I'm looking to move my waste water underneath the truck to open up some space for storage.Then I want to put a new bigger concession window in with awning.
Then either painting and vinyl decals or wrapping the whole truck and propane tanks.
 
Cool thing about the truck is that the original owners already pass inspection and health code for All DE and Philadelphia PA!

Yes. I ordered mine from the internet. An Atwood 12500. They did charge shipping so it ended up being closer to $700 but it installed very easily and blasts very coldly. It was the first thing I installed on my build and sure was glad I did.

Alright so my 83 Grumman didn't come equip from the factory with a radio , so I have been complicating where to mount one in this beast. The only thing I can think of is having a buddy frame a wood dash right above the engine hatch.  Anybody with older grumman p30 done this?

Good thing about that you can switch them on and off. I don't think if I can do that with this solar ones.  Correction the on and off is on the light. I wonder if I could some how wire a manual switch?

My spare tire is in my wallet. It has AAA Plus written on it. To be fair though I'm totally full of crap since I haven't tried it yet, and I hear they won't do it. On top of that admission of silliness my generator is attached to the front so I guess if I break down or get a flat I'm bum outa luck. :-(

Do you have a brand name, link, or any information you may have saved from research you did on the air suspension system? I'd like to have my truck about 6 inches off the ground front and back.

 
Your P-30 has leaf springs front and back I assume same as mine? I'm going to a shop today or tomorrow to see how low I can drop my truck. So if plans go as expected I'm taking out a bunch of springs. I have like 17 under the back and 12 or 14 under the front. When do you get the bounce your talking about? Just walking in it or driving?

By the way and this bit of information will surly get lost but for those of you cutting a hole in a SV the walls are 10 gauge. Which is pretty darn thick. And it doesn't take much to reinforce any hole you cut for a generator door or service window. They are extremely strong even after you take out a big section. In fact I may put in a 2nd window just for the extra light and additional air movement. I'll post some pictures of the first window instillation soon on my build thread.

Hey Jack,
Yes I do have leaf springs on the front and back.
I'm getting a the bounce while walking in the truck and the swaying while driving on the highway around 60mph. I did find an anti sway bar for the p30. When I get back to DE on monday I'll look for the paper work I had it was similar to an airbag system that lower riders used but more heavy duty. It had a compressor, air tank, and air bag shocks. thanks for the info about the metal. That's good to know!

kapowtruck Hey Jack,

It had a compressor, air tank, and air bag shocks. thanks for the info about the metal. That's good to know!

 
Ok don't worry about the information on the air bags/shocks, I have already studied the low rider systems  and that's not what I want to do. The sway issue is a little worrisome as well as the bounce in just working the line. Something I'll need to guard against. I didn't make it to the shop yet but may do it Monday. I do have two thoughts though that you might want to give some thought to or not. LOL
 
1st. When I first started doing some local research into lowering my truck I started asking some friends that run a local mechanical shop/machine shop, and was surprised to find out there is a company in Decatur Illinois (30 miles away) called the Decatur Spring Company and that is all they do is springs for trucks/cars etc. So you may have some company in a short drive that is similar. I havn't contacted them yet but most likely will.
 
2nd. Now here is a thought that I'm in the process of pursuing, new young mechanics are really into the computer aspect of cars and trucks, and are mostly parts changers. As in oh this is broke replace it, but older guys in their late 50s and early 60s have been around working on cars and trucks for so long that they have done most everything from a to z in car/truck repair. They can take a starter apart and rebuild it rather than just replace it. And they have at some points worked  on projects that required some inventive process. You know had to create a fix where there was no book to tell them how to do it. Most are wielders - fitters - fabricators, (at least to some degree) and have a great understanding as to what works and how everything on a car or truck reacts with everything else.  And finally have been around for so long they have seen it and done it. So talking to young guys is great but don't ignore the old-timer that runs the self owned shop in some out of the way location. I'm not saying just pick one and drop off your truck just thinking go by and talk to them. And at lot of times some of their willingness to take on a project like this is a personality thing. If they like you, your project or ideas, and don't demand it be done in a heartbeat the price and job might get special attention in both areas. And if it does after your open call them every once in awhile and tell them your buying lunch for the crew. You'll get great service every time you walk into that garage forever.

Rcoy
Hamburger
Re:1983 P30 rebuild 2013/10/29 00:48:21
No, the box it sits in is fastened to the floor and the frame bolts to the bottom rim of the box.
 
The floor of the bus is 16g steel with 1x3 ribs every 8 in. we cut the hole so there was a rib on each end for support, and lapped over the existing floor with 2x2x1/8 angle welded to the top perimeter of the generator box. This is probably the biggest genset you will see in a food truck, it tips the scales @ nearly 900#. The good news is that we can remove it by pulling 10 bolts and sliding it out with a transmission jack, which is how we put it in as well.

The bus has a factory underbelly lugggage area, that where my genset, house batteries and charger and water/grey water tanks are. it is all still @ factory height. I may airbag the rear axle for transport and deflate it for setup if it seems like it is going to be an issue.

Alright so I'm attempting to mount my generac underneath my p30 like Rcoy, but its going to to sit too low. I need about 5k continous power for my hood, lights, water heater, and fridge. I think about buying 2 3k honda eu and run them parrell. The problem I can't find on the if there's a adapter to go from a 4 prong twist to a 3 prong so I could plug into this gennies. Any deal with this yet? This what my plug looks like coming off my breaker box.

  Edit, I just looked at the parallel kit, it looks like it charges both conductors, and ends in a 4 prong plug, if thats the case you just need to put the correct end on the cable. It is 125v only.
I do believe the eu3000 is 120v and the 4 slot plug is 220. 2x 120v 1 neutral, 1 ground. I am sure you can wire the paralled gensets to your setup, but if you have a 220v box you will have to jumper to the second leg if you need all the breakers. Perhaps someone with more electrical knowhow will speak to the feasability of that approach.

Re:1983 P30 rebuild 2013/11/02 23:22:38
Generally adding shore power is done by removing the genset from the circuit, either with a transfer switch or adding a plug and socket, you unplug the feed from the generator and plug in your shorepower cord.

So I found these RV dog bone's adapter, so I should be able to do the same thing.

Re:1983 P30 rebuild 2013/11/02 23:54:15
This is probably more complicated than you want to go, but it is the safest and easiest way to switch or transfer power.  Below is a link to a tech article from Cummins:
http://www.cumminspower.c...-BypassTransfer-en.pdf
If you install a simple contactor which is basically a relay, you can insure you will never have a problem with having both shore and gen power being connected at the same time, but also provides the option of just throwing a switch to change from shore to gen, as both can be hooked up at the same time.
This can get much more complicated as instead of a switch to control the contactor you can have sensors to detect if the gen is running and the shore power drops, or conversely also.
I don't believe a small size contactor would be that expensive, and would certainly be more convenient that manually switching cables.
btw, Cummins has a lot of good tech articles about mobile power systems in their tech library.

Re:1983 P30 rebuild 2013/11/03 02:10:34
Ok, wow!  Slow down a sec...it's not that involved!!!!!  Simple transfer switch and call it a day...
 
http://www.homedepot.com/...100171587#.UnX185Sglss
 
Auto transfer switches are a very fancy way to automatically switch from one power source to another.  But having a manual switch allows you to choose which you want, when you want it without worrying about backfeeding or blowing any of your circuits up.  It can get way complicated...but for our applications if pretty much clear as mud...you want to provide yourself a power option-generator or shore power.  Plain and simple....whether you foot the price of an auto transfer or move the switch yourself its a pretty easy job.  Then you're generator(s) will always be permanently wired and the only plug you have to worry about is the shore power, when needed.

Here is the cord I used:

And the receptacle I used for that I bought at Home Depot or Lowes.  I would recommend finding the plugs and recepticles (except for the HD or Lowes one) on the ebay of Amazon...you'll save a ton and find them very reasonably.  For the truck receptacle I found a hubbell brand weather protected plug cover/housing that keeps it tightly closed and very well protected.  Or you could find a way to run it inside the cab and possibly incorporate that into your transfer switch.

We plug in 110V at 90% of the events.  You have the adapters to plug in to 220V at events or a 50A Generator.  We often use a Honda 3000 so we also have an adapter that goes form the 30A straight blade to a 30A twist lock.

We don't have anything that runs on 220V.  If you did the 220 devices are not going to work properly.  The 110 plug shorts the hot lines.
 
I would bet simple electronics like a 220v steam table would work, they would just run at 1/2 the normal power output.  Don't take my word for it though.

The more you keep 110 the easier things will be if you wanted to hook up to city power somewhere.  I'm kinda screwed into using 220 only (I have a residential AC on my truck which requires it-but in South Florida it's been a God send) but I have 220 shore power setup in my warehouse and just use my genny when out and about.  Occasionally I do take the truck home and run extension cords from the coolers to the house...just to keep the food cold.  Unless you have a rare circumstance you should be able to keep everything on 110V service

Which also means easier to find/cheaper plugs, receptacles, and a three conductor extension cable vs the four needed for 220V
