Re: So, I bought a fire truck...

There is a ammo can sized dry box with first aid stuff and some "extras" under the seat. Not a lot of room for a BLS bag in the truck.

It has the 230 inline 6 Tornado engine. The pump is a BB4 forestry pump powered by a 18 hp Briggs and Stratton.

Maybe try some commercial gear like Motorola, Bendix King, or EFJ. I had a VX-2r for about a year and then sold it and never looked back. I also just sold my Motorola JT1000 on ebay so you're out of luck from me anyway. For a good beater radio try the Bendix Kings. The older LPH and EPH ones go for ...

If the siphon doesn't work, and the stock tank heater starts to loose ground, ya might try putting salt in the tank. I suppose de-icing salt would work best, but livestock salt or even water softener salt might work. I would use at least 50lbs worth. Also, maybe if ya covered the tank with tarps, ol...
