    New scan guage

    Just installed a new scan gauge on my 2004 5.9 Cummins diesel . While setting up the gauges I had a code which is 2003 15 127. I’ve cleared it 10 times now and it keeps coming back on every time I start the engine . The engine light never comes on . I can’t find anything online I even called scan gauge and they said they didn’t know anything about a 2003 code . Any help would be appreciated or should I just ignore it .

    Bad turbo

    Thanks Rich much appreciated will be picking up my coach this coming Friday after a new turbos installed and will be doing that maintenance now I would assume that they would lube it when they install the new turbo

    Bad turbo

    What kind of maintenance needs to be done on the turbo And where do you lubricate and how often

    Bad turbo

    What would cause a turbo to go bad with about 46,000 miles on the engine ? I recently took my 2004 Damon with a 5.9 Cummins engine for service and for a check engine light . It came on after starting the engine and and stayed on for about a minute and then we’ll go off . They told me that the turbo was only opening to 25% . Diesel engines aren’t my specialty So I was wondering if there something I did ,lack of maintenance or just driving it wrong . I am the third owner and I’ve had it now for a year and a half and done all the maintenance since I’ve owned it . Didn’t notice anything in performance going down the freeway was fine on flats going up a hill was slow but other than that the mileage seem to be OK just want any insight of what might happen thanks

  7. After taking off the top lid to all my tanks and lifting the board up .filled it full water and found the water leak coming out from the sewer vent pipe fitting where it enters the top of the tank . It’s a spin in fitting luckily it’s not polyethylene so I use epoxy on it. While I had everything apart I check all the other fittings to make sure they are all good. After plastic welding the freshwater tank and now repairing the black water tank I hope I don’t have any more holding tank problems
  8. I have a 2004 Damon 3465 model when I’m cleaning my black water tank I fill it to where it’s full and then it starts to leak is there a breather on top of the tank . I’ve checked the top of the tank and there is no sewer vent that goes to the top of the roof only on the gray water it has a vent . Since I’ve owned it I’ve always smell sewer gas in the lower compartments . I filled the black tank with a hose in to the toilet and the water does not come up in the toilet when it’s completely full that’s when it starts leaking out from the black tank but I can’t see where it’s leaking at .
  9. Richard I bought a harbor freight hot air plastic welder . I had enough material on the sensor that was spun weld into the tank to move some of the plastic around where it was leaking . If it leaks again I already ordered some more plastic rod which I didn’t have to start with . The soldering iron one which is 80 W is probably the best to start with you can smooth out any rough spots and holds the welding plastic rod I now feel confident that any repairs on freshwater tanks are holding tanks that I can repair now knowing that these tools can do the job One important thing On buying a hot air welder from Harbor freight read the instructions if not you’ll burn it up. When done turn the heat down to zero and let the blower run for three or four minutes . There are a lot more welders out there for sale the skies the limit on price but for what I have to do and hopefully only needed maybe once it was a good buy. Thanks to all who respond this is one of the reasons why I joined
  10. Where after checking everything online to what I can use I went to Harbor freight and bought a plastic welder and weld around the outside of the sensor which is also polyethylene with the metal sensor in the center . I figured if I did any damage on it I could take it up to Coburg Oregon . there’s a shop that spin welds fittings and sensors onto a new tank he also told me that welding it is the fastest and easiest way . So far so good on the welding no leaks at least I have an option if it does leak I can replace the tank .
  11. I have a small leak on one of the sensors on my freshwater tank and looking for a solution to stop the leak is there any sealant epoxy or any other fix without taking the tank out and replacing it . My understanding is that the sensors are spun in which heat up and bond to the tank
  12. Thanks to all who responded. I finally found out there’s a small bleed screw on the bottom of the unit. You don’t have to remove it all the way to drain the coolant . there’s also a petcock right above the engine oil filter to drain coolant out of the motor
  13. 2004 Damon ultra sport 3465LE . As for the generator Generac 7.5 is all I can read I can’t find the id plate
  14. New to the form .just got done servicing Generac diesel with all new filters and changed oil don’t know how to drain the coolant can’t find a drain plug . Owners manual does not say anything about changing the radiator fluid let alone draining it .
