  1. Thanks for all the input. CAC is being flushed and cleaned, pyro/EGT being installed, air filter replaced and oil sample taken.
  2. Update: They tore it down today and the turbo failed. Apparently bearing failure causing vanes to strike housing and eat themselves. Oil went into CAC so they have to pull and flush it out. Picture attached.
  3. Thanks, will have them check
  4. Rich, Based on my limited research and knowledge, I have a waste gate with the vacuum controlled diaphragm. I tried to move the control rod by hand with no joy. At this point and time of day, I will just wait to see what the mechs tell me tomorrow. Thanks to all for the input and I will update once i have an answer.
  5. Thanks Rich. Not hearing the spool up but haven't gone back to listen. I've checked all visible hoses and all appear intact. A friend had the same compressor issue so I checked that as well. Hoping it is simple and inexpensive as well. Any thoughts on wastegate being stuck open?
  6. Bill I am observing boost indication on driver information readout and correct, no smoke. Thanks, Karl
  7. Rich, Engine rpm seems normal. No load in neutral, rpm increases to 2700 with throttle to the floor but Turbo psi remains at 0. No indication of a fuel leak. Driving to shop this am, I could slowly but gradually increase speed to 35 to 40 mph. RPM seemed to peak around 1700 as transmission tried to shift. Could only get to 4th gear.
  8. I do not have any unusual smoke. Very clean exhaust and no other indications of failure. No dash alerts or warnings.
  9. Hello all. I have a 2007 Damon Tuscany with a Cat C7 350HP. At the end of a full day of driving mountains in Easter WA and OR, I stopped in ID to spend the night. After stopping at a light at the end of the ramp, when I stepped on the throttle to go, I had no power. With pedal to floor I could barely get 25 mph, downhill. Turbo psi was 0. Limped to Walmart for the night then on to Freightliner this morning. Camped here till they get to me tomorrow. Based on various sources, checked all hoses which seem to be intact. Any thoughts, other than obvious turbo failure? Was unable to move wastegate actuator by hand. Could being stuck open cause my 0 psi problem?
  10. Thanks for the responses. Seemed obvious to me but that's usually when I check myself.
  11. I have a 2007 Damon Tuscany with two 15,000K A/C / heat pumps with ceiling ducts. The original units were 13.5K but I upgraded each as they needed replacement. I found that the previous owner placed rags in the ducts approximately 2/3 of the way back essentially creating two separate systems. The front unit cools/heats the foward 2/3 of the coach (living room and kitchen) and the rear unit cools the remaining 1/3 (bedroom and bath). My question is, is this a good or bad situation? It seems the front unit has to work harder to cool a larger space and the rear unit could assist. By removing the duct blocks I could also benefit from a single unit cooling the whole coach if I am on only 30 amp power. Does anyone see a downside to removing the rags and returning the system to its original design?
