  1. That makes sense. Campgrounds out here are pricey, not sure if it’s only here but costs are shooting through the roof.
  2. Ross, I wish you the best of luck with your new adventures. Don’t be a stranger!
  3. YUP, did the same once, just not on a Saturday night 😂
  4. Not a fan of using truck stops, they attract crime and tend to be issues at those.
  5. Wild guess, circulator pump issue. Gargling sound usually caused by a lack of flow.
  6. I’ve seen that model in action, no humming. I have heard certain models can be pronounced while others are quiet. As mentioned a fatigued unit can also be a contributing factor. If mounted in the basement you should be good on the noises if any are observed.
  7. Where did you get replacement seals? USUALLY, they are the same seal as a house toilet supply hose, I’ve found myself over the years purchasing a hose just to take the seal out for a leak here or there.
  8. Best of luck to you, I hope it solves your problems.
  9. she’s too busy telling me to turn left when I was supposed to turn the other left 😂
  10. Here is another post you might want to read; did anyone pressure test your cooling system for leaks?
  11. I had the Mustang in traffic down here back in June and my air intake went up to 120, felt like I lost 1/2 the engine and it almost stalled out hen I mashed it from a traffic light 😂. 2008 we went across the Mojave in our gas coach, 120 was the ambient temp, my intake temp went up into the 140’s, coach was pinging like an old Cat diesel on acceleration but coolant temp never budged over 198 with a 195 thermostat.
  12. If your air intake temperature is a legitimate 160 degrees you’ve got some serious design flaws or a hole allowing hot gasses to enter the intake. By chance did someone modify the engine bay layout or close off the places for hot air to escape? any exhaust leaks, perhaps a collapsed muffler (internal) By design air filters and almost all piping is on the opposite side of the exhaust. Only the turbocharger inlet should sneak over and drop into the turbo. Do you have a infrared temp gun, I’d get that engine hot and start looking at my engine bay and CAC temperatures.
  13. Make the passenger hold your cup and feed it to you while driving. No body rides for free
  14. Air intake temperatures shouldn’t cause an overheating condition in the cooling system. Sluggish, lacking power poor MPG’s, all day long. Are you sure it’s actually getting hot, could it be a sensor issue providing bad data? since you’ve already conquered where I would have started I’d check the lower radiator hose, is it collapsing under load? are we sure the fan is engaging? what RPM are you pulling hills? How many PSI is the radiator cap? I would call Cummins with your engine serial number and see what PSI cap that engine is supposed to be equipped with. our coach would climb to 215 and it had an 8psi cap on it, I swapped it for a 14 PSI CAP, never had an issue again and I’ve never gone above 200 since. Per Cummins our vintage ISL could handle up to 18 psi.
  15. Tampa Spring or American frame and axle https://americanframeandaxle.com There’s nothing on the east coast of Florida worth mentioning.
  16. Mike, the recommendation is due to the extreme heat potential and the location, the slack adjusters and S-Cams get a constant pounding of water when driving in the rain. I do not use clay grease, as I don’t want two grease guns either. I lube our coach 2x per year to make sure no water penetrated, after 8 years I’ve never had any melt away and no water intrusion, I run this product https://www.pro1industrial.com/ep-1-synthetic-grease
  17. Can you carry the screen over to the sensor and see if it can read it?
  18. Here is the direction I went in March 2017 with our current tires. I spoke with our National Tire rep for the company I worked for. Their tire engineer suggested on a 22.5 wheel do not balance, instead install Centramatics behind the wheels. Large tires only hold the balance for a short while and typically run smoothly anyway, the Centramatics will constantly correct any vibrations as the tires wear. I’ve been running like that for 6 years now smooth as glass. Centramatics also balance out other imperfections like brake drums and rotors that are not true. Have the tires “Match Mounted” onto the wheels to help minimize or eliminate vibration.
  19. Well, you’ll have to take it to a shop for the Inspection. PA law only allows the inspection to be performed at their place of business and there is a so many feet from the office clause (I believe it’s within 100 feet). Water heater, a mobile RV tech could certainly help with that.

    What is it?

    YUP, coolant filter.
