Transforming school buses into living quarters has been around for at least 75 years. The premise is simple: get a school bus and start converting it to resemble the home that you’ve always wanted. Don’t forget the ice machine, though.
Regulations prohibit the rolling homes from being their original color, and they need to be stripped of the stop gear, but having a school bus might be perfect for those who are wanting to wander around the country and have their home life right with them.
When people are thinking about converting their school buses into rolling homes, they measure their available space in windows. The bed might take up 3 windows, where the bathroom might take up only 1. The installation of a U-Line ice machine in the bus only takes 1 window, as well if you get the right model.
U-Line products are known for their sophisticated yet classical look. They’re not a cold grey stainless steel box. They’ve got style. They’re like the Apple of the ice machine world. Their specialties are undercounter ice machines, refrigerators, and beverage coolers. They’ve been making them for over 60 years.
One of the advantages of U-Line’s models is that they are modular, especially the 3000 series. One of the problems of siting an ice machine is finding one that will fit in the space you have. U-Line’s 3000 series comes in 18, 24, and 36 inch models, but these can be combined in different ways to fill any available space.
One of the great things about combining two units is that you can have separate temperature controls for each side. Need one temperature for beer and chilled mugs and another for w
You love entertaining, but you really only entertain once every two weeks. Let’s say that you have a gourmet ice cube maker in your home as well. What do you do with the ice in the meantime? We’ve got some answers for you.
Make rice reheat better – Cooked rice reverts back to its original dried form when it’s put into the fridge. To make rice taste good once more, put a few ice cubes on top of the pile before microwaving.
Cream Up Your Dressing – By putting an ice cube in your salad dressing and shaking it like maracas, you can make the dressing taste a lot better. Don’t forget to use a sealed container though!
We’re fond of all types of ice, from clear to nugget to flake, but we rarely talk about clear ice cubes. Clear ice is used in the more ritzy drinks and for special occasions, and most of the machines which make clear ice do so in small quantities – making them perfect for private parties, stadium boxes, and corporate functions.
We’re specifically talking about the U-Line CLR series of ice makers. They take ice to the next level by making them almost absolutely clear, free from most imperfections. These are definitely elite top-shelf ice cubes.
The primary way that clear ice gets clear is by removing the impurities in the ice and creating the cube from the inside out rather than the outside in. Water is constantly circulated over the building cubes to create those elusive clear cubes.

One of the things which turns off many residential owners from buying an ice machine is the need for a separate drain line. This can be a dealbreaker. Fortunately, the folks over at U-Line have that angle covered: low-capacity ice machines that don’t need to have drain lines.
In fact, most of the undercounter ice machines that U-Line produces don’t need a second drain. You can just plug it in and go to town with your ice serving parties or soirees. If the ice machine that came with your fridge didn’t come with the ice you wanted, U-line ice makers offer you a chance to get what you want.
The water line needed for many of the machines is small, measuring just ¼”, and is something which many houses already have in their kitchens.
U-Line ice makers are also incredibly water and energy efficient, using less than 3 gallons of water to produce 25 p
Ice is the backbone of the foodservice industry. There is not a bar or restaurant in the United States that cannot go about their day to day operations without a properly working ice machine. Unfortunately at times, your ice machine may not want to cooperate, can shut down, or malfunction, leaving you and your customers without ice for an extended period of time. While this is never ideal, there is no need to panic! Keep a level head, and follow these instructions to get yourself out of this unexpected predicament. Temporarily losing your ice machine does not mean your business must suffer over the next few days.
Call an Ice Machine Technician
While we are in the business of selling ice machines, we unfortunately do not make house calls or perform repairs, so the first thing that you should do is call an approved ice machine technician. Some ice machine issues are no more serious than a dirty or dusty condenser. Ideally, the problem and the labor
