11 NOV 2020 UPDATE:
Hello everyone. My name is Danny. Eric B. posted this for me since I wasn't a member of the forum yet, and I wasn't able to login initially cause of the server updates. My coach is still in the shop, going on 6 weeks now. It is in a small mom and pop truck/rv repair shop in Oxford, AL, however they were recommended to me by a tech at Cummins Birmingham. They have chased ground wires, replaced relays and fuses, and the ignition module I believe, with still no resolution. Last week they told me they thought it might be a computer problem. The coach will start just fine, but dies right after putting it into gear. It will usually move a few feet, but that's it. Total loss of electrical power as if someone turned the key off. No warning or indication lights, just complete failure. When I was stranded on I-10 about 6 weeks ago, I had the emergency flashers on, and when it would die after trying to start, even the flashers would turn off until it reset, 15-30 seconds. So it doesn't seem like an engine problem, but likely chassis. Also, there is no chassis shutoff switch on this coach. Concerning the ABS issue Eric mentioned, the ABS light only flashed once about 50 or so miles before the first failure, which was a few hundred miles before the interstate breakdown. The time between failures, though, has gotten progressively less until it has gotten to where it is now.
The shop in Oxford is still stumped even after consulting with another local diesel shop. I have called Winnebago and Cummins and they have said they can't help me cause it sounds like a chassis issue. The shop says they have reached out to Freightliner but received limited help. I called Freightliner In Birmingham thinking maybe someone there has experienced this before. They told me I could have it towed there and wait for service, but they said that none of their mechanics actually had any experience on the older Classic Chassis, and didn't really sound very confident. The only other shop around is a Gander RV, which used to be Camping World.
I feel like I am at the mercy of a small shop that can't resolve this , with with no real viable alternative. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Even a repair shop that might consult that has worked on these older chassis's? Surely this can't be the first time this has ever happened. The Winnebago is the full time home for me and my two dogs, and I have spent the last 6 weeks bouncing between hotels and friends. Thank you to everyone that responded in the past.
