Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have bought a 2007 International 29 pass bus and
would like to know what I need to do so I can
properly keep vehicle ready to start living here in
Chicago. Any help would be appreciated, I see a
plug when entering the drivers door.

It is most likely equipped with a shoreline plug and has a block heater to keep the engine warm during freezing temps, as far as fuel heaters, some are equipped but some are not you will have to verify that yourself. I do know that a lot of IH trucks are equipped with a 12 volt fuel line heater that works off the alternator when it is running but that is it. It is very important that the fuel system stays free of water as much as possible, I have heard of fuel lines freezing in really cold weather just due to way too much water in it. HTH
